Non-destructive examination plays a crucial role in society's assurance that structural features and systems are safe to perform their function.
Examining Engineering Fields
NDT methods play a crucial role in society's assurance that structural features and systems are safe to perform their function, with standard or enhanced realiability; and with maximum cost effeciency.
Ultrasonic Global Standards
In adherence with global demands and standards set down by the organisations and companies across nearly all industrial sectors, Sonatest design, build and manufacture NDT equipment, mainly using ultrasonic testing technologies to carry out these critical tasks.
NDT Inspection Trials
Inspection trials and visual testing are defined and implemented by NDT technicians and engineers who aim to identify, and define, the condition of materials and flaws/weaknesses such structures may contain. In doing so they locate weakness and problematic conditions that, if left and unidentified, would lead to catastrophic results - such as failing nuclear reactors, derailed trains, burst pipelines etc.
Due to the nature of destructive testing NDT testing, Inspections do not damage or downgrade the functionality of the materials or subject being tested. Again the "absence" of "destruction" in this process heightens the level of quality control and demonstrates sound cost effectivenes for the end user/operating companies.
