Dye Penetrant Inspection
Dye Penetrant Inspection (DPI) is a widely used NDT technique which detects surface
breaking flaws in both ferrous and non-
In the laboratory Dye Penetrant Testing is particularly suitable for the inspection of batch quantities of machined parts and is a cost effective and efficient method of testing for surface breaking discontinuities.
Magnetic Particle Inspection
Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) is one of the best-
Using a permanent magnet, electromagnet, flexible cables or hand-
In Ultrasonic Testing (UT), very short ultrasonic pulse-
Such mechanical vibrations have different forms depending on the direction of particle
movement in the wave motion, so there are several forms of ultrasonic waves. The
most common and widely used in weld NDT testing are compressional and transverse
(shear) waves. They can travel large distances in fine-
Applications of Ultrasonic Testing inspection include location of manufacturing defects in welds and castings through to Corrosion / Erosion monitoring and large scale corrosion mapping.
Visual Inspection is the most basic and common inspection method to evaluate the condition or quality of an item. It is easily carried out, inexpensive and usually doesn't require special equipment.
The method requires good vision, good lighting and the knowledge of what to look for. Visual Inspection can be enhanced by various methods ranging from low power magnifying glasses through to borescopes. These devices can also be used with television camera systems. Surface preparation can range from wiping with a cloth to blast cleaning and treatment with chemicals to show the surface details.
Visual Inspection can sometimes identify where a failure is most likely to occur and identify when a failure has commenced. Visual Inspection is often enhanced by other surface methods of inspection, which can identify flaws that are not easily seen by the eye.
