Non Destructive Testing Services

Non destructive testing (NDT) certified experts will conduct required testing with timeliness, accuracy and confidentiality. Production testing is performed in the on-site laboratory or at remote industry locations.

Scott Bandas and the Health, Safety, Quality & Environment team discuss the strengths and advantages of NDT Testing for product quality

Nondestructive examination (NDE), nondestructive inspection (NDI), and nondestructive evaluation (NDE) are commonly used to describe this technology.

“HMI is a trusted partner to DSTI for NDT services because of their attention to detail in reports and ability to maintain traceability” – Nick Haugen, Engineer, DSTI

Comprehensive Non Destructive Testing

The techniques used in Non Destructive Testing can save money and engineering time by providing examination for troubleshooting and research. The combination of our extensive years of experience performing NDT testing with aquality infrastructure provides superior testing, documentation and follow up consultation.

Our Non destructive Field & Lab Services:

AWS Certified Welding Inspectors (CWIs) and Senior Certified Welding Inspectors (SCWIs) to Visual Testing (VT) are certified per standards set by the The American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT), ASNT Central Certification Program (ACCP). (SNT-TC-1A, ACCP)

Magnetic Particle Inspection (MT)

Methodology used to test detect flaws at or near the surface of ferromagnetic materials:

  • Yoke-Fluorescent, Dry, Wet contrast
  • Portable bench-circular and longitudinal magnetization
  • De-magnetization

Liquid Penetrant Inspection (PT)

A method for the detection of surface defects. A dye is used to penetrate defects along with a developer to make the defect indications more visible. This is performed using visible of fluorescent dyes.(SNT-TC-1A, ACCP)

  • Visible or fluorescent
  • Water washable or solvent removable

Ultrasonic Inspection (UT)

Uses high frequency sound energy to penetrate through solid material and identify flaws detrimental to the life of the part. (SNT-TC-1A, ACCP)

  • Conventional and Shear wave
  • Thickness testing/Lamination scans
  • Phased Array
  • Immersion
  • Build, certify or rent Ultrasonic Calibration Blocks

Visual Testing

Visual Testing (VT)

Are performed to a variety of codes and standards. (level II) (SNT-TC-1A/AWS CWI/ACCP)

  • Visual of surface conditions – corrosion, pitting
  • Visual inspection of welds, components, products and systems

Certified API 570 piping inspection

  • 570 Visual Piping inspections to detect in-service/mechanical damage
  • Monitor repair and installation activities for code compliance
  • NDE level II UT thickness, PT and MT inspections
  • Calculation of corrosion rates and remaining life
  • Hydro witnessing

Our Credentials:

  • ASNT-TC-1A Level III Oversight
  • Level II VT, MT, UT, PT
  • AWS Certified Weld Inspector (CWI)
  • ASME NQA-1 Compliant
