Non-destructive tests (N.D.T.) are inspections, checks and surveys carried out by means of methods that do not alter the material and do not require the destruction or removal of test samples from the concerned structure. The main feature of this kind of tests is the possibility to check the concerned parts without interfering with the tested material.
Non-destructive tests are thus used not only as a control of the finished product but also as production support, as preliminary pre-treatment tests or as controls in line downstream of a process that poses risks for the integrity of materials.
These tests have become important tools to ensure the safety and reliability of products contributing significantly to the reduction of non-compliance of the product and, ultimately, to reduce breakage during operation.
The range of NDT methods application is really extended. Basically it is possible to control everything, metallic and non metallic products, products with different shapes, with different thicknesses.
TEC Eurolab NDT Dept. is equipped with cutting edge equipment and NDT inspections are carried out by 2nd and 3rd Level technicians in all NDT Methods: Visual Inspection (VT), Dye/fluorescent penetrants (PT), Magnetic particles test (MT), Ultrasonic test (UT), Eddy Current test (ET), Radiographic test (RT), Thermographic test (IT), Extensometric test, Metallographic Replica on-site tests, Phased-Array test, On-site chemical analysis (PMI), Hardness test with portable instruments
