Hidden flaws and defects can lead to catastrophic failures. Any imperfection, if left undetected, can escalate into a serious issue, leading to costly repairs and downtime. The threat isn’t just to the bottom line; it’s about reputation, trust, and safety.
Conventional NDT has been the cornerstone of structural and material integrity for decades. Leveraging these proven methods, we can uncover imperfections and provide timely alerts before they become major problems.
Do you want to eliminate delays, record-keeping hassles, and streamline your NDT? If you’re ready for an easier, safer NDT experience, check out our digital methods: Automated Ultrasonic Testing and Digital Radiography.
Our Conventional NDT Methods
Manual Ultrasonic Testing
Manual Ultrasonic Testing uses high-frequency sound waves to detect defects, measure material thickness, and evaluate the condition of internal structures.
Commonly employed to assess welds on pipelines, storage tanks, and pressure vessels, it detects flaws like cracks, voids, or porosity ensuring weld integrity.
Our Manual Ultrasonic Testing capabilities include:

Over time, equipment like pipelines or tanks can suffer from internal or external corrosion. Radiographic Testing (RT) can detect internal flaws and corrosion, ensuring the weld’s integrity and strength.
Radiographic Testing is a crucial tool to ensure safety, reliability, and compliance, given the industry’s high-risk nature and the potentially catastrophic consequences of equipment failure.

Electromagnetic Testing Methods
Electromagnetic Testing leverages the principles of electromagnetism to detect and assess defects, corrosion, and other anomalies in conductive materials.
Electromagnetic testing methods are adaptable and can be applied in a variety of settings, from offshore platforms to refineries, and across a wide range of equipment. Our Electromagnetic Testing Capabilities include:
HITACHI PMI-SmartMaster OES System
Magnetic Particle Testing
Liquid Penetrant Testing
Mechanical Integrity Services
Mechanical integrity programs initially addressed corrosion using inspection intervals set by API 510, 570, and 653 codes. These programs were initially adopted to meet federal requirements rather than for their inherent business value.
Yet, as industries faced equipment failures, unreliable operations, and elevated maintenance costs, the importance of robust mechanical integrity programs became evident.
