Close Proximity Radiography


CPR (Close Proximity Radiography), also known as SCAR (Small Controlled Area Radiography), is a revolutionary technique in radiation technology. It allows for radiographic inspections to be conducted with minimal restrictions and in close proximity to other trades and processes without affecting critical sensor systems.

CPR offers a range of benefits for industrial facilities, including the ability to perform inspections 24/7, minimize exposure for rope access technicians, and safely monitor nearby processes that utilize nuclear gauges or require UV flame detectors. This innovative approach to radiographic testing helps to reduce the need for restrictive shooting windows, minimize plant shutdowns, and improve efficiency and safety during inspections.

The reduced zone of influence and repeatable setup geometries provided by CPR also make it easier to obtain hot work permits, a key requirement for most plant safety managers. In addition, CPR helps to reduce the costs and risks associated with industrial inspections, making it an ideal solution for a wide range of applications.

In conclusion, CPR (Close Proximity Radiography) is a versatile and efficient solution for radiographic testing, offering numerous advantages over traditional methods and helping to ensure that inspections are conducted safely and efficiently.
