Non-destructive testing – Advanced

ISQ has the ability to develop customized Non-destructive testing techniques according to the customer needs

About this service:

When the response to needs for inspection of materials, equipment and structures does not fall in the so-called conventional non-destructive testing techniques (NDT), ISQ uses a range of Advanced NDT.

Supported by its R&D department, ISQ has its own ability to develop applications of customized NDT techniques according to the customer needs. These advanced NDT solutions enable you to store and share data, thereby rendering the dissemination and consultation of results fully accessible to all areas involved, e.g. quality, production and maintenance. The increased sensitivity of this kind of tests and the spatial resolution make inspections feasible and less dependent on the operator, significantly improving the probability to detect discontinuities.

Testing techniques available:

  • Computed Radiography (CR)
  • Phased array (PA)/ FMC and TFM
  • Automated Phased Array (PA AUT)
  • Automated Ultrasonic Testing (AUT)
  • Ultrasonic testing by immersion (IRIS)
  • Long Range Ultrasonic Testing – Guided Waves
  • EMAT – Electromagnetic acoustic transducer
  • Pulsed Eddy Current
  • ACFM
  • Eddy Current Testing and Remote Field Eddy Current Testing
  • Time of Flight Diffractio – TOFD
