Non Destructive Testing (NDT) and Inspection Services
What is Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and Inspection
Inspection and examination of materials, components and assemblies are required to determine if they comply with design specifications, standards or are defective. Of utmost concern for newly manufactured or constructed items is their ability to withstand the mechanical stresses or chemical attack to which they are expected to be exposed to. For items that are already in service, the question is whether or not the item will continue to function satisfactorily in its service environment until the next scheduled inspection.
The essential feature of non-destructive testing is that the process itself produces no deleterious effects on the material or structure under examination.
The subject of non-destructive testing has no clearly defined boundaries. It ranges from simple techniques such as visual examination of surfaces to the well-established methods of ultrasonics, magnetic particle examination and positive material identification.
Non-destructive testing is most commonly used where component failure or incorrect material may have catastrophic consequences, such as aircraft, power stations and petrochemical plants, as well as gas lines and offshore installations. The periodic inspection of components in these fields determines if they are suitable for continued service.
