What is NDT?

Nondestructive Testing (NDT) involves inspecting and testing materials and parts without causing any destruction. The field of Nondestructive Testing, also known as Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) or Nondestructive Inspection (NDI), is a critical industry that plays an often overlooked but always necessary role in assuring that structural components and systems perform their functions in a reliable and cost-effective fashion. NDT technicians conduct tests in a variety of environments to identify and locate defects that could potentially cause pressure vessels to rupture, pipelines to burst, structures to fail, and a variety of other less catastrophic but equally damaging events. These tests are performed in a manner that doesn’t affect the materials’ ability to be utilized or put in service. There are several types of NDT inspections and techniques, each used for specific types of machinery. NDT testing methods and NDT inspection techniques are all vital components to making industries safe and cost-effective.
