Conventional vs. Advanced NDE/NDT

Simply put, most facilities need a full-service inspection firm with experience in both traditional and advanced NDE/NDT techniques. Methods like Visual Inspections and Ultrasonic Thickness Testing can provide useful insight at low cost. However, advanced technologies like Phased Array Flaw Detection (PAUT) and Eddy Current Tube Testing (EC) generate high-value reports and provide insight difficult to obtain any other way. That’s why our technicians are certified in a broad range of techniques.

Visual Inspections, VT

Visual inspection is one of the most common types of non-destructive inspection methods utilized in the industry. Visual Inspection techniques are cost effective as they do not require expensive equipment or set up time. When performing Visual Testing the inspector physically examines the area of interest, however different tools are used to enhance or supplement this inspection such as, borescopes, mirrors, weld & Pit gauges, and illuminators. Code criteria guide the Inspector to determine if the weld examined is acceptable or rejectable. Let our team of specialists recommend the best solution for your situation.

Liquid Penetrant Testing, PT

Liquid penetrant testing (PT) is commonly referred to as dye penetrant testing or inspection. This simple form of non-destructive examination (NDE) is used to examine the integrity of new welds and base metal, it is easy to perform and is commonly used as a cost-effective solution. One of the benefits of PT is that it can be utilized on virtually any type of material. PT can be used to detect surface flaws that may not be detectible by the human eye; however, it is not capable of identifying subsurface defects. The surface area is prepped clean and a dye is applied directly to the area of concern. This dye is drawn into any surface defects or flaws by “capillary action”. A developer is used to give a contrasting background and draw out the dye revealing the surface flaws. There are different types of dyes that can be utilized depending on the situation. Let our team of specialists recommend the best solution for your situation.

Magnetic Particle Testing, MPT, MT

Magnetic particle testing (MT) is used to detect flaws or defects on the surface and slightly subsurface of most ferromagnetic materials. Some of the types of materials that can be tested are iron, cobalt, steel alloys, and nickel. MT uses iron particles coated with dye pigment to aid in the identification of defects. These particles are sprayed on the test component and then the test material is magnetized. When the material is magnetized, any surface flaws or defects will interfere with the magnetic field and reveal the location of the defect. Wet Florescent Magnetic Particle Testing (WFMT) can offer more sensitivity and produce better results in certain circumstances. Let our team of specialists recommend the best solution for your situation.
