Non Destructive Testing

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), also called Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE), is the use of noninvasive techniques to determine the integrity of a material, component or structure or quantitatively measure some characteristic of an object i.e.  Inspect or measure without doing harm.

There are different types of NDT techniques that are used in the industry for analysis, each ideal for different applications.

  • UT = Ultrasonic Testing
  • ET = Eddy Current Testing
  • RT = Radiographic Testing
  • MT = Magnetic Particle Testing
  • PT = Penetrant Testing
  • VT = Visual Testing

UT Applications

  • Lamination scans

  • Inspection of pressure vessels and storage tanks

ET Applications

  • Tube inspection
  • Corrosion monitoring
  • Heat treat verification
  • Thin material thickness
  • Coating thickness
  • Surface breaking cracks
  • Material conductivity assessment

Hardness Testing Applications

  • Examining Material Properties
  • Measuring Wear Resistance
  • Damage Assessment

RT Applications
