The Australian Institute for Non Destructive Testing
Non-destructive testing (NDT) is the descriptive term used for the examination of materials and components in a way which does not change or destroy their usefulness.
It is used at all stages of plant or equipment construction and for integrity monitoring during operation and maintenance.
NDT plays a crucial role in ensuring cost effective operation, safety and reliability of plant, with resultant benefit to the community.
Benefits provided by the correct application of NDT include:
Compliance with technical and statutory requirements
Safety of plant and structures
Avoidance of loss from breakdown
Establishment of fitness for purpose
Protection of investments through predictive maintenance.
Non-destructive testing is reliable only when undertaken to appropriate standards. To ensure this a wide range of national and international standards are documented which covers specific industry needs.
All principal methods of non-destructive testing are covered by Australian Standards. Major manufacturing construction and maintenance standards reference NDT requirements, together with acceptance standards. AINDT plays a major role in the development and updating of standards through representation on appropriate Standards Australia industry panels.
Branch and Federal Awards are made annually in a number of categories such as the J H Cole Award for significant contribution to the NDT Industry and also AINDT Examination awards which are available to candidates whom gain the best scores in both theory and practical examination results. Further details of these award can be found in the AINDT bi-monthly journal - The Industrial Eye or by contacting the AINDT federal office.
