Testing Quality Without Harming Samples
Nondestructive Testing, also called NDT Testing, can detect surface and sub-surface defects without harming your materials and components or affecting their operating performance. Non destructive testing methods are also used to inspect the quality of welds for Welder and Procedure Qualification and to detect corrosion.
Laboratory Testing Inc. is a fully equipped and accredited independent laboratory near Philadelphia PA (USA).

Array of Non destructive Testing Services
Both immersion and contact ultrasonic testing (UT) services are performed in Lab Testing’s non-destructive 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, pipe and coils, 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 certified in accordance with ASNT SNT-TC-1A.
