Here are some rarely used NDT – Few Other Methods
1. Eddy Current Testing – ET:
Eddy-current inspection uses electromagnetic induction to detect flaws in conductive materials. A circular coil carrying current is placed in proximity to the test specimen (electrically conductive). The alternating current in…
Positions for Welding Pipe
For welding pipe in shops, power plants, oil refineries, and chemical plants for crude oil, gasoline, and natural gas, the same basic welding positions described previously are used.
Flat Butt Weld Pipe Position…
Equipments and materials for NDT lab set up

Acceptance Criteria for Liquid Penetrant Testing -LPT as per ASME , AWS and API standards
Liquid penetrant testing simply called as PT. Sometimes Dye Penetrant Testing is a surface defect detection NDT method and is more sensitive to all kind of surface defects, such as…
Non relevant Ultrasonic Indications can usually be identified as one of the following:
Interference form the transducer (search unit)
Interference form the surface of the specimen
Interference caused by mode conversion of the sound beam
Interference caused by the shape of the…
In Ultrasonic Testing we use something called “Ultrasonic Vibrations” we must know two facts about a vibration:
A vibration is a back and forth movement.
A vibration is energy in motion
A depression of a surface from its normal position is called a displacement.
This blog will discuss types of discontinuities that can be evaluated with the ultrasonic testing in NDT method.
Discontinuities can be divided into three general categories inherent, processing and service
Inherent discontinuities are usually formed when the metal is molten.
Inherent wrought discontinuities relate to the…
Get the Difference between Destructive and Non Destructive testing here:
Non Destructive Testing (NDT):
NDT is industrial method for analyzing the characteristics of material or finding the discontinuities in the material & Weld joints, without damaging the material.
NDT is otherwise called as, Non Destructive Evaluation –NDE….
Ultrasonic Testing utilizes high frequency sound waves which are not audible to human ears.
The Ultrasonic sound waves are used for measurements of thickness of any material.
General frequency used in ultrasonic thickness measurements probe is 5 Mega Hertz and above.
The probe is placed over…
This blog will let you know about the principle of Ultrasonic testing
What is Ultrasonic Testing?
Ultrasonic Testing Uses high frequency sound energy to conduct examinations & make measurements.
It can be used for flaw detection, Dimensional measurements.
