Nondestructive testing serves a wide variety of industries and as such, works on a number of different components on any given day. Despite this variety, one thing remains true, whether the technician is supporting the aviation industry, medical imaging, or infrastructure: these assets are expensive.

One of the primary reasons it is so important to use nondestructive testing is that the assets under inspection are sensitive and costly, and most clients cannot afford any malfunctions or failures. This is precisely why NDT exists; to protect investments and guard against costly damage. Let’s explore asset integrity management and NDT consulting.

What Are Asset Integrity Management and NDT Consulting?

Asset Integrity Management

If you work with assets like wind turbines or utility poles, every component and machine on your shop floor is an investment. The materials you use on a daily basis are certainly nothing to behave recklessly with.

There are a number of different aspects to integrity management, many of which begin with nondestructive testing. Nondestructive testing is a comprehensive inspection system that evaluates the holistic health of your assets.

Through more basic testing methods like visual testing, the exterior and more pressing issues for your assets can be managed. Additionally, more precise methods like electromagnetic testing and magnetic particle testing use more extensive measures to evaluate the status of your assets.

Whatever method is used, these inspections are used to determine the health of your assets and guide your next steps for maintenance and repair, which ultimately leads to more efficient daily operations and higher productivity overall.
