MITS provide Non-Destructive Testing using, but not limited to, the following methods:
VT – Visual Testing
MT – Magnetic Testing
PT – Penetrant Testing
ET – Eddy Current Testing
UT – Ultrasonic Testing
PAUT – Phased array Ultrasonic Testing (Advanced)
ToFD – Time of Flight Diffraction (Advanced)
The purpose of None Destructive Testing (NDT) is to inspect a component in a safe, reliable, and cost effective manner without causing damage to the equipment or shutting down plant operations. This is in contrast to destructive testing where the part being tested is damaged or destroyed during the inspection process.
MITS use a combination of industry leading equipment and utilise the skills of highly qualified and experienced Inspectors to ensure first class inspection on your projects during the production and manufacturing of steel structures. We also offers ‘in service’ inspection that will ensure the safe and efficient operation of your equipment and assets by detecting defects before they result in severe damage and assures compliance with international standards and specifications.
The methods used for conventional NDT include Visual Testing, Magnetic Testing, Penetrant Testing, Eddy Current Testing, and Ultrasonic Testing, they all share common features in that the materials under test are not harmed in any way. These methods are well established and widely applied.
For Advanced NDT we use the latest inspection technologies to identify weld defects, analyze their characteristics, and accurately provide the size and location of indications. Some common uses of Advanced NDT techniques include the inspection and detection of weld defects during the manufacturing stages of offshore structures, it is becoming more popular within the Renewables Industry as it is more time efficient than traditional UT methods and can also provide a permanent record of the data acquired during testing.
