PRINCETON JUNCTION, NJ-Conam Inspection & Engineering Service announces an upgrade of their Auburn, MA, facility’s in-house radiographic capabilities from the installation of a 4 million electron volt (MEV) X-ray unit.

Lou Varady, general manager of Conam Auburn states, “The 4 MEV is capable of penetrating 6 to 14 inches of steel much more rapidly than our other high-energy units, with increased radiographic quality. With the addition of this unit, we now are capable of inspecting extremely thick components, especially very heavy wall castings.”

This new unit adds to Auburn’s fleet of high-energy units. Currently in operation are a 2½ MEV unit that is capable of penetrating 2 to 8 inches of steel, a 2 MEV unit capable of 1- to 6-inch penetrations and a variable 1 to 2 MEV unit typically used on components with varying thickness up to 6 inches. “The addition of the 4 MEV unit allows us to cover the entire range of our clients’ needs and adds to our X-ray flexibility,” adds Varady.
