Nondestructive testing (NDT)
With non-destructive material testing, or NDT for short, the quality of a workpiece is tested without damaging the material itself. Various physical effects are used for this purpose. In our range, we use ultrasonic testing for material testing (residual metal thickness). It belongs to the non-destructive testing methods. This means that the components can also be tested in an installed state without removing the coatings.
The ultrasonic wall thickness measurement is part of the routine measurements of every ship and plant operator, who must determine the condition of the ship’s hull, tanks, pipes and cargo hatches at regular intervals.
This constant monitoring serves to maintain the safety of the ship and the crew.
Through this measurement, corrosion damage can be detected in time and countermeasures can be taken.
