Oil & Gas

NOVO’s portable X-ray systems offer unique advantages to the Oil & Gas industry’s radiography inspections of pipes, pressure vessel, structural welds, valves etc. These state of the art units make it easy to look for defects such as porosity, cracks, lack of fusion, inclusions, corrosion and erosion, and also enables us to measure pipes' wall thickness with precision. The systems are compact yet robust, easy to carry and can fit in tight or elevated locations. Utilizing its sensitive digital radiography flat panel detectors - NOVO’s systems have been designed and developed to address numerous radiography assignments in refineries, offshore platforms, power stations, exploration and transmission facilities.


NOVO’s portable digital X-ray systems are perfect for on the spot analysis required in the aerospace field. The systems are fully wireless, battery operated, compact and lightweight and can be used in tight and elevated places in various environments . Bringing laboratory quality to the field, the systems provide the ideal solution for aircraft radiography inspection during both production and maintenance operations. NOVO’s systems offer a fast workflow, and therefore save time and money compared to Film or CR technologies. The state of the art DDA’s provide outstanding image quality using a powerful and intuitive software operated via a tablet. Safety is significantly improved due to shorter exposure times, lower dose and also smaller closure areas. 


NOVO’s portable digital X-ray systems provide immediate results, on site, and are ideal for inspection of welding in shipyards during production and maintenance. Typical welds inspections include detection of cracks, lack of fusion, corrosion, porosity and slag lines. NOVO’s state of the art digital radiography flat panel detectors allow shorter exposure and lower dose usage, compared to other technologies, and thus smaller area closure and increased productivity. The system is lightweight, thin, wireless and easy to carry so it can fit in the tightest of spaces and yet boasts outstanding image quality.


Munitions quality control during production or periodic inspections is crucial. NOVO’s portable X-ray systems provide high quality images within seconds to detect cracks, explosives integrity, assemblies’ errors, faulty fuses and more. The system is easy to operate, carry and control therefore providing us with unmatched productivity for intensive radiography tasks out in the field and inside a laboratory. Information is digitally stored and can be easily accessed, shared, analyzed and archived for future reference. 


NOVO’s portable X-ray systems have been designed to meet the challenges of the construction industry. Its features allow accurate identification and measurement of rebars, plastic conduits, cables, voids and more.  The system is easy to deploy, highly portable, battery operated, fully wireless, rugged and simple to operate in all weather conditions and yet provides outstanding image quality. Operators can reach remote, elevated and tight places and still enjoy highly detailed images on a rugged tablet. The system can work with Isotopes, Constant Potential and battery operated pulsed X-ray sources.
