Nondestructive testing (NDT)

Non-destructive material testing, or NDT, tests the quality of a workpiece without damaging the material itself. For this purpose, various physical effects are used. In our assortment we use the ultrasonic test for material testing (residual metal thickness). It belongs to the nondestructive testing methods. This allows the components to be inspected even when installed without removing the coatings.

The ultrasonic wall thickness measurement is one of the routine measurements of every ship and plant operator, which must determine the condition of the hull, tanks, pipes and hatches at regular intervals. These constant monitors serve to maintain the safety of the ship and the crew.

By this measurement, corrosion damage can be detected in time and countermeasures taken
