Inspenet, October 25, 2023.
At the ASNT 2023 Conference , Phoenix Neutron Imaging stood out as a beacon of innovation in the field of neutron radiography. The interview conducted at their booth during the event provided a fascinating insight into their work and its impact on the world of non-destructive testing.
Phoenix Neutron Imaging, based outside of Madison, Wisconsin, offers neutron radiography services, a complementary approach to conventional X-ray radiography. Company representatives Martin Wissink and Samantha Wenkman explained how their neutron radiography technology Neutron plays an essential role in the inspection of explosive materials and critical components, such as turbine blades used in aerospace applications.
” We offer a service called neutron radiography that is quite unique .”
What sets Phoenix Neutron Imaging apart is its focus on safety and innovation. Instead of relying on traditional nuclear reactors, the company has a privately owned particle accelerator source. This gives them greater flexibility and capacity for the inspection of explosive materials and other components.
” Unlike most of our competitors who use older nuclear reactors, we have a particle accelerator base source that is privately owned. “
Their reach extends beyond the borders of the United States, as they have performed export controlled work in both military and civilian applications for clients around the world.
Likewise, the Phoenix Neutron Imaging team highlighted its website as a valuable source of information and contact. The platform allows visitors to meet the team, explore the services offered and understand the technology behind neutron radiography.
Regarding the development of the ASNT 2023 Conference, Samantha expressed her excitement at the opportunity to connect with brilliant colleagues in the industry and establish personal relationships with familiar faces in the industry.
With the inauguration of ASNT, Phoenix Neutron Imaging proves to be a leading force in non-destructive testing and a reference in technological innovation in its field. This year’s event promises a showcase of excellence and knowledge sharing that will contribute to the continued growth and development of the industry.
