Conventional NDE/NDT Methods


We know nondestructive examination.

Conventional Nondestructive Examination (NDE) describes a process in which welds, materials or equipment can be examined for various types of discontinuities such as cracks, weld discontinuities, corrosion, or wear, that does not require the destruction of the component being tested.


Hi-Tech Testing’s experts can assist in the following NDE techniques:

Conventional Radiographic Testing is a nondestructive testing method that uses either x-rays or gamma rays to examine parts of equipment for flaws or damage.
Hi-Tech Testing offers bubble leak and pressure change testing techniques of leak detection. These methods work by pressurizing or pulling a vacuum in a closed system while relying on visual detection or pressure monitoring to detect leaks.
Liquid Penetrant testing is one of the most reliable methods when seeking to detect discontinuities open to the surface on a wide array of materials.
Magnetic Particle Testing (MT) is a nondestructive examination technique which involves inducing a magnetic field in through a material to find discontinuities.
Ultrasonic Testing is a method of nondestructive examination that involves the use of high frequency sound waves to detect flaws in components and welds.
Mechanical Testing is a process used to determine the strength of a material when force is applied. This includes properties such as hardness, ductility, impact resistance, and fracture toughness.
Visual Testing is a method of examining for surface flaws on a piece of material or equipment by assessing it visually. No examination is more valuable than the one performed using the eyes of an experienced inspector.
