Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)

Non-Destructive testing consists of a number of non-invasive techniques to determine the  integrity of a material, component or a structure or quantitatively measure some characteristic of an object. Or simply put it is “testing without doing harm to the object being tested”.  

Some typical applications of NDT are:

  • Flaw detection. 
  • Leak detection 
  • Location determination. 
  • Dimensional measurements
  •  Structure & micro structure characterization 
  • Estimation of mechanical & physical properties.
  • Stress and dynamic response measurements
  • Material Sorting
  • Chemicals Composition Determination etc., 

NDT is used in a variety of settings that covers a wide range of industrial activities in such diverse fields as:  

  • Automotive
  • Aviation / Aerospace
  • Power-plants 
  • Construction 
  • Maintenance and  repair 
  • Manufacturing 
  • Industrial plants such as Nuclear, Petrochemical, Power, Refineries, Pulp and Paper, Fabrication shops, Mines and other Risk Based Inspection programs. 
  • Pipelines
  • Railways
  • Wire Rope Testing for Crane Wires, Rope-way Wires etc
  • Medical imaging applications,  to name a few.

Successful and consistent application of nondestructive testing techniques depends heavily on appropriate training, experience and integrity. Personnel involved in application of Industrial NDT methods and interpretation of results should be certified, and in some industrial sectors certification is enforced by law or by the applied codes and standards.
 
What NDT courses do we provide ? 


 We provide a number of NDT courses in accordance with the document SNT-TC-1A, 2001 edition published by  ASNT, in the disciplines and levels as described below. 

What is ASNT ? 
 
ASNT stands for “America Society for Non-Destructive Testing” and it happens to be one of the most reputed and authentic certification bodies in the field of NDT. 

ASNT grading : Level 2
 
 Among various certification levels of ASNT, the most sought - after one is ASNT level-2 which enables a person to set up and calibrate testing equipment, conduct the inspection according to codes and standards  and compile work instructions for a team of technicians. They are  also authorized to report, interpret, evaluate and document testing results. They can also supervise and train Level 1 technicians. In addition to testing methods, they will be familiar with applicable codes and standards and will have some knowledge of the manufacture and service of tested products.

As a Corporate partner of ASNT, Blastline Institute is authorized to certify LEVEL - 2 personnel in some of the most popular testing methods such as:
 

Radiographic Test Film Interpretation (RTFI)

Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)

Radiographic Testing (RT)

Ultrasonic Testing (UT)

Visual Testing (VT)
