Source Projector Servicing
Your gamma radiography source projector should be regularly inspected and maintained. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission in 10 CFR 34.31 specifies that the licensee shall check for obvious defects in radiographic exposure devices, storage containers, and source changers prior to equipment use. Additionally, the
licensee shall conduct a program or inspection and maintenance of radiographic exposure devices, storage container, and source changers at intervals not to exceed three months or prior to the first use thereafter. Inspection and maintenance records of these programs are to be kept for three years.
QSA Global, Inc. can provide inspection and maintenance service for source projectors that are sent to our Burlington or Baton Rouge facilities.
The service includes:
•A complete inspection to check for any wear in moving components or safety interlocks
•Repainting and provision of new labels when appropriate
•Provision of a dated inspection and maintenance certificate
An inspection will normally be carried out during a source exchange at no extra cost, and we will inform you of any faults found and estimated cost to repair or service. Full service, maintenance and certification is only provided at your request and is available for any source projector sent to us whether loaded or empty.
