JME Advanced Inspection Systems has a reputation as the market leader for the design and manufacture of high quality inspection systems, this includes our range of Pipeline Crawlers used by the ‘Non-Destructive Testing’ industry. For over 30 years, JME Pipelines Crawlers have been continually improved and updated to produce panoramic radiographs of the highest quality. Our range of systems are designed to inspect circumferential butt welds in new pipelines, such as oil and gas transmission pipelines, from 6” to 72” (15.24cm to 183cm). As a self-contained and self-powered exposure vehicle, they are ideal for a vast range of NDT applications both on and off shore.
Over the past 30 years, JME has built its reputation on innovation, quality, service, and commitment to our clients. As a company, JME thrives on customer satisfaction, which is why many of our customers have been using our services for nearly 30 years.
JME portable Betatron systems are a range of compact circular electron accelerators producing a high energy directional X-Ray beam. The Betatron systems are easy to assemble, operate and maintain. They contain no moving parts or cooling liquids so maintenance required on the systems is minimal. They are capable of producing radiographs of very high contrast, sensitivity and resolution allowing operators to meet the tightest inspection standard.
JME offer 4 systems within the Betatron range each with a different maximum energy, the outputs are 2.5, 6, 7, 7.5 and 9MeV. The energy output on all systems is variable from 2Mev through to the maximum energy and adjustments can be made in 0.1MeV increments. The systems offer cost savings and a greater degree of portability when compared with systems such as linear accelerators (Linacs) which are much larger, non-portable, and can cost up to 10 times the price of a JME Betatron.
JME are proud to be the exclusive distributor of YXLON portable X-Ray products within the United Kingdom. YXLON offers a full range of high quality X-Ray Sources, ideal for use on the JME Pipeline Crawler range or as stand-alone solutions for NDT Inspection projects.
The YXLON range includes Panoramic and Directional X-Ray tubes in a range of kV outputs. All tubes run at Constant Potential for high penetration, this also makes them suitable for traditional film capture and digital panels. Along with the SMART EVO range of X-Ray tubes, there are a number of accessories available to expand functionality and provide protection for transit and storage.
JME are also able to supply the Y.XMB Trolley System which is well suited for jobs in confined spaces and projects that require more mobility than a standard tube set-up.
JME design and manufacture digital radiography systems to meet customers specific inspection requirements.
All JME (DR) Systems are built with an integrated safety system, which includes emergency stop buttons and monitored door interlocks, audible pre-warning and fail safe warning lamps. All JME (DR) systems meet all the statutory requirements of the current Ionising Radiation Regulations (IRR99).
Wet film radiography has been accepted and used as a NDT technique for many years. However new X-Ray imaging techniques are now available and offer many advantages over film. As a leader in the field of advanced inspection equipment JME can offer Digital radiography (DR) to our customers.
JME can provide advice on choosing and using our DR systems, radiographic techniques and safety requirements. Conduct feasibility studies and trials. Design and manufacture turn key solutions. Supply X-Ray sources. Supply assessor and image manipulation software. Provide after sales service and repair.
Sometimes projects don’t quite go to plan, you may require additional or replacement equipment to complete your work on time, and on budget. JME Advanced Inspection Systems now offer an equipment rental service, supplying high-energy Betatron systems (2.5 and 7.5MeV) and various YXLON X-Ray Tubes.
JME are able to offer both Long and Short term rental, so whether you require an X-ray source for the duration of a project, or just short term cover for equipment breakdown, we have a solution to suit your requirements.
We are also able to supply a range of additional accessories to support our hire systems, these include X-Ray tube stands and our Audio/Visual Radiation Alarm. Please enquire for the availability of our full range of accessories.
Penetrant non-destructive testing method is a system that is used for the detection of cracks in the surfaces of parts.
After the material which is going to be subjected to penetrant test is pre-cleaned, it is subjected to penetrant application as dipping or spray. After this process, the material is rinsed and dried.
Powder “developer” is applied electrostatically on the dried material. Finally, possible cracks and faults on the material are detected by checking under the UV lamp.
CMOS detector for ultra-high resolution imaging which meets aerospace standards!
Brilliant results thanks to 19 μm pixel pitch
Time to image
Increased productivity through fast processing
Versatile positioning options and universally applicable
Most important features
Because of its compact design, the detector is ideal for small tubes, and it can also be positioned in hard-to-reach places or even inside an object.
In order to provide for efficient performance in a harsh test environment, the detector is equipped with a durable aluminum casing, and its active area of 36x26 mm is protected by a strong carbon layer.
