We offer the most effective NDT methods to investigate the integrity of your equipment and assets.
Our comprehensive range of NDT methods can help you:
- Monitor the integrity of assets using intrusive or non-intrusive methods.
- Detect defects and irregularities before they result in severe damage.
- Save time and money through fast and effective testing of your assets and equipment at every stage of their lifespan.
- Ensure safe and reliable operation of your facilities.
Visual Testing (VT)
A primary and time-tested method of NDT, visual testing is applied with or without optical aids.
Aids include magnifiers, microscopes, telescopes, and specialized devices such as boroscopes and fiber-optic devices.
Our Experts are trained to detect surface flaws and diagnose incongruence using detailed visual inspection.1
Dye Penetrant Testing (PT)
This is a cost-effective method used to locate surface-breaking flaws such as cracks, porosity, laps, seams, and other surface discontinuities.
It can be applied to both ferrous and non-ferrous materials and all
It is commonly used to detect defects in castings, forgings, and weldments. We work with all industry sectors, we can provide inspection on-site at our customer’s premises or at our premises.
In the premises, inspection is particularly suitable for the batch quantities up to one ton in weight and two meters in diameter.
The method is also useful for testing on-site as it is portable, and no need for additional resources such as electricity or water when visible color contrast is used.9
Magnetic Particles Inspection (MPI)
Used to detect cracks and discontinuities within ferromagnetic materials (e.g. iron, nickel, and cobalt) using a magnetic field and magnetic particles.
It is also suitably applied to sub-aquatic surfaces such as oil rig structures.
It is often carried out to help determine an item’s fitness for use or conformity.
This quick and relatively easy to apply the technique is widely used in all industry sectors to inspect a variety of products and equipment.
The method can detect surface or near-surface flaws such as cracks, laps, seams, and inclusions in ferromagnetic materials such as iron and steel.
One of the main advantages of magnetic particle inspection is that it can give an immediate indication of defects and discontinuities.
Manual Ultrasonic Testing (UT)
It is used to carry out the inspection on castings, forgings, welded components, and composite structures in all industry sectors.
The method can be performed on all types of materials and its applications include:
- Flaw detection such as inclusions, cracks, and porosity – particularly for small flaws or flaws situated deep within a part.
- Determining the thickness, particularly in erosion or corrosion monitoring.
- Assessment of bond integrity.
The benefits of this method include quick accurate inspection and portable operation.
The technique uses a pulser/receiver unit to power an ultrasonic transducer.
Skilled interpretation of the signals will indicate if there are any flaws or imperfections
Eddy Current Testing (ET)
This particular method is employed using electromagnetic induction to detect sub-surface flaws in conductive materials.
The technique is principally applied to surface and tubing inspections,
and secondarily applied to making electrical conductivity and coating thickness measurements.
