Flash radiography or pulse radiography can be carried out when information is required
about the condition of the outer surface of an insulated pipe, without having to remove the
Figure 10-18 shows flash radiography in progress. Since only the aluminium cladding and
insulation need to be penetrated, relatively soft radiation is applied, while exposure time is
limited to only a fraction of a second. In that time sufficient “pulsed radiation” is generated.

about radiographic intensifying screens. It is safe to make radiographs manually without the need for additional safety arrange-
