Non-destructive digital radiography Industrial sustainability and environment

Digital radiography is an inspection method used to find defects and check the structure of materials.

 Industry digital radiography: Sustainability and environment 

Industrial digital radiography, or X-ray imaging using digital technology, represents a major advance in many areas of industrial testing. The benefits include many environmental and sustainability aspects, in addition to faster and more efficient film evaluation procedures.

Digital radiography has significant environmental advantages over conventional radiography. Since it does not require films and their associated chemicals (methol, hydroquinone, sodium carbonate, sodium sulphite, etc...) to produce images, digital radiography significantly reduces the environmental impact of industrial testing. Conventional film processing requires chemicals that can lead to environmental pollution. By contrast, the use of digital technology significantly reduces these environmental risks, which helps to achieve sustainability goals.

In addition, digital radiography enables faster and more efficient film evaluation. Digital images are displayed immediately after the examination, with no need to develop and dry films. This enables faster decision-making and more efficient workflows, saving time and money for industrial companies.

Last but not least, digital radiography allows digital storage and easy access to images. This not only saves space and paper, but also improves data protection and document management. Digital storage and access allows for rapid sharing of examination results between the people who need them, further increasing workflow efficiency.

In summary, industrial digital radiography has significant advantages over conventional radiography, especially in the areas of environmental protection, sustainability and film evaluation. The use of digital technology significantly reduces environmental risks, improves workflow efficiency and contributes to sustainability goals. Therefore, if sustainability and efficiency are key concerns, digital radiography is the ideal choice.
