Knowing that the equipment is functioning properly, and future accidents can be prevented with check-ups through NDT creates incredible peace-of-mind.
FREMONT, CA: Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a descriptive concept used for the evaluation of materials and components in a way that lets materials to be examined without changing or destroying their usefulness. NDT plays a vital role in everyday life and is necessary to ensure safety and reliability. Typical examples are found in aircraft, motor vehicles, pipelines, bridges, power stations, refineries, buildings, and oil platforms, which are all tested using NDT. Read on to know more about the benefits of conducting NDT in manufacturing.
NDT is conducted to locate and characterize material conditions and flaws that, if left overlooked, could cause mishappenings. Useful in a variety of industries with volatile or high-pressure equipment and machinery, it is a preventative measure that saves lives. It is also safe to both the tested product and the tester. When it comes to accurate results, NDT is reliable because of the variety of available and complementary options. Any given piece of machinery can be subjected to a number of non-destructive tests, which avoids the risk of oversight or inaccuracy.
NDT contrasts and combines with destructive testing. NDT enables equipment actually in service to be tested. After the equipment has been tested destructively, it cannot be reused for service. So, the purpose of NDT is to reduce the risk of damage to the equipment or infrastructure in the manufacturing field. NDT is widely used across several important global industries. Any industry with hefty physical equipment or infrastructure is likely to use some kind of non-destructive testing.
Heavy manufacturing firms typically use NDT to ensure product quality before delivery. Pipe, steel, and tubing manufacturers evaluate for material and weld integrity. Large manufacturers trust NDT to determine whether their products meet appropriate specifications. Specialty composite manufacturers can identify voids, delamination, porosity, density variations, damage, stress, and foreign materials present in their products. NDT in manufacturing guarantees not only product safety, but also the firm’s reputation.
