DO YOU KNOW ABOUT NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING?
What is a Non-Destructive Testing?
Nondestructive testing (NDT) is the process of inspecting, testing, or evaluating materials, components or assemblies for
discontinuities, or differences in characteristics without destroying the serviceability of the part or system.
What is the Purpose of Non-Destructive Testing?
Visual observations, even with magnification, cannot locate all small, below the surface defects in the cast, forged metals or in weld -metals such as found in pressure vessels, boilers, and nuclear components. Proper NDT will, however, reveal, all such indications, without damage to the components. NDT are also used to determine the physical properties of materials such as impact resistance, ductility, tensile strength etc.
Why Safety is critical to Non-Destructive Testing?
NDT plays a vital role in the safety of our lives by assuring the quality and reliability of several critical products whose integrity is of paramount importance for safety.
Billions of components in the manufacturing, power generation and transportation industries throughout the world are being inspected on a daily basis using one or more NDT methods.
Many potential accidents are avoided due to the timely detection and elimination of the defects in materials and products through careful application of the principles of ‘Quality Assurance in NDT’.
