Nondestructive testing, also known as nondestructive examination, nondestructive inspection, and nondestructive evaluation, is a process used in many engineering fields to ensure the safety, efficiency, and reliability of parts and materials. At Red Deer Ironworks, we have the knowledge and experience you need to provide NDT inspections in Colorado, Alberta, and beyond.
There are many kind of nondestructive testing including:
NDT is used to evaluate parts and materials for their inconsistency or differences in characteristics without damaging or affecting the usability of the part. In other words, after the NDT has been performed, the part or material can still be used safely. Other forms of testing destroy the part or material beyond usability. NDT, then, saves time and money because it does not require the part or material be replaced following the testing.
Other forms of testing may be used to find other faults with parts or materials, but NDT should be used when looking for discontinuities. NDT testing is used in many fields including fabrication, manufacturing, and in-service inspections to ensure reliability, lower production costs, and consistent quality. It can also be used during construction projects to ensure safety from the use of quality materials and joining procedures. NDT can also be performed on products and buildings already in service to make sure they are safe, reliable, and functioning as efficiently as possible.
