Products & Services
Magnetic Particle Testing

Magnetic particle testing is utilized to inspect ferromagnetic materials (those that can be magnetized) for defects located at or near the surface.

This technique is highly effective in detecting cracks, stress fractures, and other surface flaws. Lead NDT commonly utilizes mag particle testing for the inspection of handling tools such as slips, elevators, bales, etc.

Main Advantages:

  • Large surface areas of complex parts can be inspected rapidly
  • Can detect surface and subsurface flaws
  • Surface preparation is less critical than penetrant inspection
  • Magnetic particle indications are produced directly on the surface of the part and form an image of the discontinuity or defect
  • Equipment costs are relatively low
Ultrasonic Testing

Ultrasonic testing is utilized to detect surface and subsurface defects in a wide range of materials including metals, plastics, and wood.

Ultrasonic inspection may also be utilized to measure the thickness of materials and to characterize the properties of various materials. This form of testing is an electronic process based on sound velocity and attenuation measurements. Lead NDT commonly uses ultrasonic testing on welds, SEA, and various raw materials. In addition, we utilize the latest in ultrasonic technology to ensure accurate results and dependability.

Main Advantages:

  • Depth of penetration for flaw detection or measurement is superior to other methods
  • Only single-sided access is required
  • Provides distance information
  • Minimum part preparation is required
  • The method can be used for much more than just flaw detection
Liquid Penetrant Testing

Liquid penetrant testing is utilized to locate cracks, porosity, and other defects that break the surface of a material and have enough volume to trap and hold the penetrant material.

 This type of inspection can be utilized to inspect large areas very efficiently – and will work on most nonporous materials.

Main Advantages:

  • Large surface areas or large volumes of parts/materials can be inspected rapidly and at low cost
  • Parts with complex geometry can be inspected efficiently
  • Indications are produced directly on the surface of the part, providing a visual image of the discontinuity
