Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)

Our NDT services include:

Visual Inspection (VT)

This method involves both direct and indirect visual inspection techniques, direct inspection is where the material is inspected directly by the human eye with no additional visual aids, indirect inspection may involve the use of magnifying glass, mirror, bore scope (mini camera), closed-circuit TV etc. Visual inspection is a crucial NDT method which is too often overlooked, but a visual examination of an equipment can often reveal obvious problem areas, such as leaks, excess vibration, corrosion or misalignment, this inspection technique is very cost effective and can be used to identify areas that require further NDT applications.

Particle Inspection (MPI) and Dye Penetrant Inspection (DPI)

These lines of NDT surface examination are offered to our clientele on a daily basis. Our expertise in these NDT techniques guarantees our clientele of good quality service. Ultrasonic Testing (UT) Popularly known as Ultrasonic Wall Thickness Inspection is an NDT technique whereby ultrasonic frequency waves are used to examine the structural integrity of a given item, including the detection and location of the flaw. It can also be used to measure thickness. We have a broad range of ultrasonic testing equipment that serves our clientele in various areas of their specific needs. Most of our UT thickness gauging instruments have data logging features and echo-echo abilities. Benefits are on-the-spot readiness of inspection reports coupled with productive time savings from not removing paint coatings before inspection.

Radiographic Testing (RT)

Also known as Industrial Radiography is an NDT method of inspecting materials for hidden flaws by using the ability of short wavelength electromagnetic radiation (high energy photons) to penetrate various materials.

Eddy Current Testing (ECT)

This is basically used to inspect Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioners (HVACs), Heat Exchangers, Welds and various other types of infrastructure. Our eddy current inspection engineers have got experiences on the job as well as classroom training on eddy current inspection up to international standards.
