No Harm Done: Confirming Quality Without Harming Samples
Nondestructive testing services, also called NDT services, can detect surface and sub-surface defects without harming your materials or products. Non-destructive testing methods are also used to inspect the quality of welds for Welder and Procedure Qualification and to detect corrosion. The non-destructive testing services provided by Laboratory Testing Inc. are PRI/Nadcap accredited and follow strict quality procedures to assure reliable results. Our non-destructive testing inspectors are certified to ASNT SNT-TC-1A, NAS410/MIL-STD-410, MIL-STD-2132 and Pratt & Whitney PWA-NDTQ to meet your industry requirements. All results are evaluated by our certified NDT Level II and Level III technicians.
Nondestructive Testing for Metals & More
Lab Testing is a fully equipped and accredited independent laboratory providing answers to your material questions and quality needs. The layout of our non-destructive testing lab and capacities of our equipment allow LTI to inspect products and parts in all shapes and sizes and orders of almost any quantity using NDT testing methods. We inspect metal tubing, pipe, bar, plates, castings, fasteners and other metal products, as well as some ceramic items. Our high-capacity forklifts and cranes safely handle materials weighing up to three tons.
NDT Testing and Inspection Services
Both immersion and contact ultrasonic testing (UT) services are performed in Lab Testing’s nondestructive testing lab to locate discontinuities in products and inconsistencies in tubing and pipe wall thickness. With our extensive in-house collection of reference standards for tubing, pipe, bar and plate, we are able to turn orders around quickly.
Hydrostatic pressure testing is used to verify the performance capability of fluid-filled tubing or pipe and can identify leaks. LTI can test tubing and pipe to pressures up to 10,000 PSI.
Surface and near surface discontinuities can be identified in products that can be magnetized using magnetic particle inspection services. Wet fluorescent magnetic particle testing is performed on products up to 12 ft. long using equipment with a maximum output of 6,300 amps. Dry powder inspection services are also provided.
Liquid penetrant testing services are reliable for detecting surface-breaking flaws in materials with a non-porous surface. Technicians at Laboratory Testing Inc. perform dye penetrant testing using both fluorescent and visible dye on products up to 25 ft. long.
X-ray inspection is used to locate internal discontinuities, verify the integrity of internal components and determine the quality of welds. At LTI, our X-ray inspection equipment can penetrate thick metal and plastic products and parts, and our 20 ft. by 20 ft. vault can handle items very large in size.
Inspectors are SNT-TC-1A certified.
