Liquid “Dye” Penetrant Testing (PT)

is widely used NDT method for detection of high sensitivity to small surface defects. Produces a flaw indication that is much larger and easier for the eye to detect.

  • Low Cost
  • Aerosol spray cans make it very portable
  • Few material limitations- metallic and nonmetallic, magnetic and nonmagnetic, and conductive and nonconductive maybe inspected
Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)

uses magnetic fields and small magnetic particles to detect flaws in components. Components do have to be ferromagnetic.

  • Fast and relatively easy to apply
  • Able to detect surface and near-surface defects
  • Very sensitive for finding cracks: provides a visual picture of the crack
  • Very portable and adaptable to many conditions
Eddy Current Testing (ET)

involves the application of electromagnetic energy to evaluate the condition of a range of test object. Is fast and effective.

  • Inspects complex parts and shapes
  • Portable equipment and Minimal part preparation
  • Can detect surface and subsurface cracks, corrosion, and changes in conductivity.
Ultrasonic Testing (UT) / Bond Testing

uses high frequency sound energy to conduct examinations and make measurements.

  • Portable equipment
  • It is sensitive to both surface and subsurface discontinuities.
  • It has other uses, such as thickness measurement, in addition to flaw detection.
Radiographic “X-Ray” Testing (RT)

is utilized to test a variety of products such as welds, castings, forgings, honeycomb, and fabrications due to its penetration and absorption capabilities.

  • Can be used with most materials
  • Provides a permanent visual image
  • Reveals the internal nature of image
We can do in house inspections or we can provide onsite NDT at your facility/location.
