Non Destructive Testing
Non Destructive Testing, or NDT, is a blanket term for a wide range of analysis techniques used in many industries in order to evaluate the properties of a material or component without damaging it or impairing its properties or performance. There are other terms used to describe this technology, including Non-Destructive Examination (NDE) and Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI).
Due to the fact no harm occurs to the items being tested, NDT is highly valued as a technique for product evaluation and research, often saving time and money. NDT is widely used in construction, aerospace, defence, oil & gas, power generation and medical fields.
There are lots of different methods of Non Destructive Testing available. Different techniques will suit different applications, so it is important to choose the appropriate testing method for the task in hand. Here at Sonatest, we offer instruments to use in a range of different ultrasonic evaluation techniques, including thickness gauging, flaw detection and phased array examination. We also offer comprehensive tools to work with the equipment including relevant software, couplants and accessories.
