Using Advanced and Emerging Technologies to Address Today’s Inspection Challenges
Nondestructive testing (NDT) represents a range of assessment methods for determining the quality and integrity of materials, components, products and systems. As the name implies, nondestructive testing techniques do not affect the usefulness or serviceability of the material or product after testing has been completed. For these reasons, nondestructive testing is widely used in manufacturing, product fabrication and in-service inspection operations.
Some of the advanced nondestructive testing and evaluation techniques routinely used in chemical, oil and gas operations include:
