Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is the application of measurement techniques in order to identify damage and irregularities in materials. In some cases, NDT is the only practical way to obtain information about the current status and safety of process plant. Weld-Tech employ Dye-Penetrant, Magnetic Particle and Ultrasonic testing to ensure fault free components, performed by qualified NDT engineers to PCN levels 2 and 3 and compliant with British & ASME Standards.
NDT can be performed on-site or at our in-house test facility, on a wide range of equipment, to prove weld repairs and joints, and identify component vibration / shock loading / age fatigue cracking.
Conventional and Specialist Inspection Services for Non-Destructive Testing
Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is the branch of engineering concerned with all methods of detecting and evaluating flaws in materials. Flaws can affect the serviceability of the material or structure, so NDT is important in guaranteeing safe operation as well as quality control and assessing plant life. The flaws may be cracks or inclusions in welds and castings, or variations in structural properties that can lead to loss of strength or failure in service. The essential feature of NDT is that the test process itself produces no deleterious effects on the material or structure under test.
Weld-Tech supply multi skilled and experienced Technicians certified to the appropriate requirements of all NDT disciplines relating to conventional and specialist techniques. Our NDT services are available for either new build or in-service applications.
Weld-Tech Inspection Services provide highly skilled, experienced and motivated personnel qualified and certified in accordance with international certification schemes (e.g. PCN (EN 473/ IS0 9712), ANSI CP-189 and SNT-TC 1A) in the conventional techniques.
