Non-Destructive Testing

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.

NDT Capabilities

Non-destructive testing is an effective method of finding faults, before structural failures occur. We use a variety of NDT techniques for different applications and circumstances, including:

  • MPI (magnetic particle inspection)
  • FMPI (Fluorescent Magnetic Particle Inspection)
  • UT (Ultrasonic testing)
  • LPI (Liquid Penetrant inspection)
  • acoustic emission testing
  • hardness testing

Inspector Certifications

Among our staff, we have expertise dealing with machinery from a range of industries. Our inspectors and technologists hold various certifications such areas as:

  • Visual inspection – 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

Company Certifications

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.
