Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)

NDT is a term that embraces the methods of examining materials in order to detect flaws, or measure properties, without affecting the serviceability of the material.


The Primary Functions of NDT are:


Ultrasonic Testing (UT)

  • UT is a Nondestructive test method in which a beam of high frequency sound waves is used to detect surface and subsurface flaws in various materials.
  • Can be used to determine material thickness.
  • UT is one of the most widely used nondesctructive testing methods.


Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)

  • MPI is a nondestructive test method utilizing magnetic leakage fields and suitable indicating materials to disclose surface and shallow subsurface discontinuities on ferromagnetic materials.
  • MPI is a rapid and economical method of testing.


Liquid Penetrant Testing (LPI)

  • LPI is an inspection tool for dedecting and indicating surface discontinuities in nonporous materials.
  • The object of the Penetrant inspection is to detect surface discontinuities such as cracks, porosity, laps, seams, as well as other surface imperfections.
  • LPI is fast, economical and very accurate.
