Non Destructive Testing (NDT)

Non-destructive testing (NDT) includes various test methods used to detect material defects and weaknesses that will show up over time. Common to the methods is that one avoids reducing the physical properties of the equipment. Non-destructive testing is used as part of the production or installation inspection to check that the quality requirements are met. Equipment and components must be inspected periodically to detect any defects or wear. The choice of methodology is situation-based and an important part of the NDT work. The different methods are used either individually or in combination with each other.
