Radiographic and Ultrasonic Weld Testing

Straightforward visual testing methods hit a roadblock when weld flaws are concealed. Where does the NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) process go from here? Expanding to include electronic scanning instrumentation, the procedure recruits radiographic and ultrasonic weld testing, an approach that seeks hidden discontinuities. These internal flaws can’t be seen or felt, but they do interfere with […]

What Material Factors Should Be Tested When Doing Welding Inspection?

Encumbered by numerous tools and specialized instruments, weld inspectors strike out in search of jointing flaws. They’re also armed with less weighty assets. These are the applied science qualifications that inform their senses. Besides weld discontinuity identification, though, all weld inspectors are charged with another important duty. Using stereo microscopes and other optically enhanced instruments, […]
