What is Non Destructive Testing?
Non-Destructive Testing is quite simply a means of assessing the structural integrity or properties of structures or materials without damaging them, although some techniques do require surface coatings to be removed.
The term applies to a range of methods from a straightforward visual inspection, Magnetic Particle inspection, Liquid Penetrant inspection, to more complicated disciplines such as Eddy Current or Ultrasonic Testing. The various techniques are designed to complement each other to provide the client with complete reassurance of product inspection coverage.
The critical importance to all NDT techniques is the ability (of the technician) to interpret the results generated and to understand where they fit into an assessment of the integrity of the structure as a whole. This only comes with experience and is an area in which our track record speaks for itself.
