Non Destructive Testing
Non destructive testing
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.
AQMA is certified in accordance with NS-EN ISO 9712 – NDT Ultrasound Testing (UT).
We have extensive experience from inspection work, and can carry out thickness measurements on all types of vessels. The measurements are summarized in a report and comply with requirements for the respective class company.
The customer provides a GA plan, plate drawings and reports from previous thickness measurements. In advance of the inspection, we go through the minimum and original thicknesses in consultation with the customer and class company.
Arrangements must be made for access to a measuring point (scaffolding/lift). Work that may conflict with the measurements must be avoided (including welding, painting, high-pressure washing, grinding, etc.).
