Something worth shouting out - The word from Penhall Technologies

October 26, 2017

Since 1995 the Penhall Company has operated a non-destructive testing program to
improve safety for its employees and customers. When cutting into concrete it is
essential to locate any hazards embedded in the concrete such as utility lines and
tension cables. In early 2016 Penhall decided to add X-ray technology to its existing
US radar capabilities to bring enhanced accuracy and the unique ability to create
near instant images for its customers to view.


Most concrete inspection in the US today is done using film and radioactive isotopes
as the energy source during operation. This old approach has many drawbacks and
a single exposure or film development can take 50 minutes or more, before an image
is even available, versus a few seconds for digital x-ray. Radioactive isotopes are
extremely dangerous, and the superior sensitivity of our NOVO DR digital detector
plate enables a CP on/off x-ray tube to be used – vastly improving jobsite safety and

After careful testing, Penhall chose our NOVO 22 Discovery 4K paired with the
Comet 300D x-ray tube. Our system brings intuitive, user-friendly software with a
simple touchscreen interface - ideal for use at jobsites. Our proprietary image
enhancing feature called “Genie” produces crystal clear images with just one touch
and dramatically reduces the time between shots.
