Products & Services
Ultrasonic inspection utilises ultrasonic pulses to find internal flaws or defects in welds, castings and materials. It can also be used to measure the thickness of a component. Our Inspection Personnel are all qualified externally by an independent certification body and qualified to ISO 9712.
Magnetic Particle Inspection
Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) is an NDT method that is used to detect surface breaking or near surface flaws in ferromagnetic materials or components. This technique involves inducing a magnetic field into a specimen and applying a detection media. The flux leakage is then detectable by the experienced inspector and is evaluated against relevant specifications.
