Non-destructive testing (NDT) encompasses inspection technologies and techniques used to detect flaws, increase reliability, maintain asset integrity, and prevent failures in a vast array of industries—from aerospace to automotive, to bridges and buildings, and from oil and gas sector to the overall power generation industry; the list goes on. NDT methods used today widely range from traditional visual inspections and ultrasonic testing to the use of advanced robotics and radiography.
Ultrasonic NDT includes a family of NDT techniques that use short, high-frequency ultrasonic waves to reveal flaws in equipment. The basic premise is the use of pulsars/receivers, transducers, and display monitors. There are many different types of ultrasonic technologies, from phased array ultrasonic testing to rapid ultrasonic gridding to time of flight diffraction, to name a few. While all of the subsets of ultrasonic provide many benefits including high accuracy and speed, they should be performed by experienced professionals.
While conventional or digital radiography can be used, it entails the use of either X-rays or gamma rays to view the internal structure of a component. Its main advantages include being adaptable to many assets, highly reproducible, requires little surface prep, and the data can be stored and retrieved later on. In addition, many other innovative techniques are also making their way into the NDT space.
