What is Non-Destructive Testing?
Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is a method in which you can evaluate the condition of a material without causing damage. Because NDT does not physically alter the items being inspected, it is a highly-valuable technique throughout many industries. NDT can save both money and time in product evaluation, troubleshooting and failure prevention.
Non-destructive testing is an effective method of finding faults, before structural failures occur.Â We use a variety of NDT techniques for different applications and circumstances, including:
- MPI (magnetic particle inspection)
- FMPI (Fluorescent Magnetic ParticleÂ Inspection)
- UT (Ultrasonic testing)
- LPI (Liquid Penetrant inspection)
- acoustic emission testing
- hardness testing
Among our staff, we haveÂ expertise dealing with machinery from a range of industries. Our inspectors and technologists hold variousÂ certifications such areas as:
- Visual inspection â€“ Level I, II and III
- Magnetic particle inspection (inspectors are CGSB certified)
- Industrial ultrasonic testing (CGSB certified)
- Liquid penetrate testing (CGSB certified)
- Hardness testing (Brinell, Rockwell)
- Steel and aluminum structural and mechanical component inspection
- Acoustic emission testing of fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) boom sections
NDT Certification is regulated by the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB). Our technicians exceed these standards and strive to become leaders in all NDT techniques.
The Kova Group of Companies are Canadian Welding Bureau CSA W178.2 certified.
