Magnetic Particle Testing looks for near-surface or surface flaws in ferromagnetic materials like iron, nickel, and other alloys. Many industries, from automotive to aerospace to power generation, use this non-destructive testing for product forms. The testing occurs before extensive machining time is wasted to manufacture a flawed component.

Leak detection strategies have varied from the use of a single application of soap-based formulations for coarse leaks to the highly sophisticated use of a mass spectrometer. Specialized leak detection fluids are far superior to soap-based solutions, which potentially contain contaminants or other harmful components.

Regular non-destructive testing is vital in finding and diagnosing defects before they become major problems. In the oil and gas industry, leaks can be expensive, destructive, and even potentially fatal. In order to maintain the standards of the industry and ensure that your operations are safe and consistent, the right products are key.

Ultraviolet light plays a critical role in the Non-Destructive Testing process, as it lights up potentially dangerous particles during magnetic particle inspections and other inspections...particles that the human eye simply can't see. So, unless you're a reindeer (they have ultraviolet vision) you're going to need ultraviolet light(s) as part of your arsenal of non-destructive testing supplies...but which ones?

Non-destructive testing's technical purpose may be to inspect and test materials without causing the harm, but its greater purpose is nobler: safe lives, build confidence, and reduce costs. The result is greater peace of mind knowing that NDT protects lives, property and profitability.

NDT has come a long way since the early years, and those of us involved in the industry today owe a debt of gratitude to these pioneers, many of whom never lived to see the fruit of their labor. Had it not been for their efforts, non-destructive testing as an industry might not even exist.

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is a means of testing used to evaluate and examine the properties of materials, systems and components that make up a structure, without destroying the structure itself. Industries such as petrochemical, aerospace, pipeline, fabrication, shipbuilding, and the military (including military contractors) can all benefit from the procedure.

Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a very complex and wide-ranging field. As such, the precise definition of NDT is generally very long, extremely complex -- and quite frankly confusing for many people. Here's a shorter, simplified version of the definition: Non-destructive testing is a method of testing materials for structural integrity without destroying or damaging the material.
