WHAT IS NDT?
Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a descriptive term used to examine materials and components in such a way that allows materials to be examined without changing or destroying their usefulness. NDT can be used to find, size, and locate surface and subsurface flaws and defects.
NDT plays a crucial role in everyday life and is necessary to assure safety and reliability. Typical examples are found in pipelines, bridges, trains, power stations, refineries, infrastructures such as buildings and bridges, oil platforms, and aircraft inspected using NDT.
NDT is a Quality Assurance management service and requires an understanding of the various methods available, their capabilities and limitations, knowledge of the relevant standards and specifications for performing the tests.
WHY IS NDT IMPORTANT?
Non-destructive testing can be applied to each stage of an item's construction. NDT is important for the following reasons:
o Accident prevention and to reduce costs
o To improve product reliability
o To determine acceptance to a given requirement
o To report information on repair criteria. With AIS, you will receive thorough reporting with detailed, easy-to-understand results to help you make better decisions for the welfare of your equipment and facility.
