Non-destructive testing methods are techniques that do not cause damage to the material being inspected, providing rapid delivery of robust results for preventive or corrective actions. For industrial plants, non-destructive testing methods are used for components in plant, vessel and pipeline construction, as well as cast and forged components and pipe systems.
Non-destructive testing is critical in ensuring plant reliability, safety and conformance to legislative requirements. It also helps to improve your plant’s operational availability by identifying weaknesses before they result in unscheduled downtime. As non-destructive testing methods do not cause damage to components and systems, they offer advantages in terms of safety and cost effectiveness.
TÜV SÜD’s plant engineering experts have the technical expertise and experience to support you in carrying out challenging NDT tasks across all relevant fields of applications. They are trained to perform testing in accordance with all applicable international standards.
Our specialists are also certified in accordance with ISO 9712, PCN and to a limited extent SNT-TC-1A.
We offer a complete package of knowledge services, testing and training solutions to assist you with all aspects of the non-destructive testing process including organization, coordination, testing and recommendation of measures.
Our experts inspect systems, provide advisory on the application of tests and special methods, and evaluate the data gathered through test systems. We also prepare documented procedures, test instructions and specifications.

During the continued operation of a plant the materials are subjected to operating temperatures and pressures, time as well as environmental conditions that can all negatively impact on the integrity of the material. Metallographic replication is a method used to conduct on-site analysis of the material. The analysis by means of replication provides a direct evaluation method for creep damage in components, which can be directly used to do remaining life assessments.
