Radiographic Examination or industrial radiography is a non-destructive testing method that uses ionizing radiation to inspect materials and components with the objective of locating and quantifying defects and degradation in material properties. It uses either X-rays (produced with X-ray generators) or gamma rays (generated by the natural radioactivity of sealed radionuclide sources, such as Se-75 or Ir-192).
Ultrasonic Testing (UT)
Ultrasonic testing is a non-destructive testing method based on the propagation of ultrasonic waves in the object or material tested. Very short ultrasonic pulse-waves with different frequencies are transmitted into materials to detect internal flaws or to characterize materials.
Penetrant Testing (PT)
Penetrant testing, also called Dye penetrant inspection (DP) or Liquid Penetrate Inspection (LPI), is a non-destructive testing method used to check surface-breaking defects in all non-porous materials (metals, plastics or ceramics). The penetrant may be applied to all non-ferrous materials and ferrous materials. This method is used to detect casting, forging and welding surface defects such as hairline cracks, surface porosity, leaks in new products, and fatigue cracks on in-service components.
Magnetic particle Testing (MT)
Magnetic particle Testing is a non-destructive testing method for detecting surface and shallow subsurface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials such as iron, nickel, cobalt, and some of their alloys. The process puts a magnetic field into the part. The magnetic lines of force are perpendicular to the direction of the electric current.
Visual Inspection (VT)
Visual Testing is a non-destructive testing method for flaws that are visible to the naked eye and is the most commonly used NDT method across all industries. It allows for a feasible and fast control of quality at every step of the fabrication or maintenance process.
Utrasonic thickness Testing (UTT)
Ultrasonic measurements of thickness performed with ultrasonic gauge. This method examines the material thickness based on ultrasonic waves with great precision.
Hardness Testing (H)
Hardness measurements. Hardness test applies as a method employed to measure the hardness of a material. Hardness refers to a material’s resistance to permanent indentation.
