We also offer Industrial Gauging Co-60 Gamma Sources
QSA Global, Inc. is the world-leading supplier of Cobalt-60 (Co-60) sealed radioisotope sources to the industrial gamma radiography industry. Our exclusive and diversified supply chain ensures a reliable, long-term supply of Co-60 to our customers.
QSA Global, Inc.’s Co-60 sealed radioisotope sources are compacted High Specific Activity (HSA), double-encapsulated, and welded for superior quality and safety.
Our Co-60 sealed radioisotope sources are available in 300 Ci (11.10 TBq) activity. Custom activities may be ordered to meet your specific application needs.
Designed, tested, and manufactured to the requirements of ISO 9001/EN46001
Cobalt-60 sealed sources are used throughout the industrial radiography industry to detect structural damage to metal parts. QSA Global, Inc.’s Co-60 sealed sources are used to perform industrial gamma radiography with relatively short exposure time on thicker materials such as heavy castings, thick steel weldments, and concrete.

QSA Global, Inc.’s Co-60 sealed radioisotope sources are generally in the configuration of a right circular cylinder with an end mounted hemisphere of equivalent diameter. The active material is coaxial with the source capsule.
QSA Global, Inc.’s Co-60 isotope assemblies were designed specifically for use in our Co-60 gamma radiography source projectors to perform weld quality inspection in Fabrication Shops and Shipyards and to investigate the condition of large valves in piping systems.
Co-60 radioisotopes are available for the following current and previous Co-60 gamma-ray source projectors.
We understand that dealing with radioactive materials is complex. Shippers of radioactive materials in regulatory jurisdictions must ensure full compliance with all current and applicable transport regulations.
