KULZ uses X-Rays for defect testing

February 27, 2015. Kamensk Uralsky Foundry Plant (KULZ, a member enterprise of Uralvagonzavod Corporation) started using an industrial-purpose X-Ray device to test its aluminum and magnesium alloy castings for defects.

According to the corporation’s press service, the 3m-ruble equipment set was bought by the plant late in 2014.

‘The new 225-kilowatt fault detector came to replace its less powerful and less productive 150-kilowatt predecessor. The radiation-emitting devices were installed in a properly insulated room with a special automatic door. However, the safety of the equipment had to be confirmed by Rospotrebnadzor before any work could begin. The health security experts assessed the radiation background and looked into the technical documentation and gave the testing procedures the green light,’ the press service says.
