NDE TESTING

ULTRASONIC THICKNESS (UT) EXAMINATION:

Technical Field Services offers Ultrasonic Thickness (UT) examination as a means for finding flaw detection/evaluation, dimensional measurements, material characterization, and more. The main types of Ultrasonic Testing are Pulse-Echo, Normal / Angle Beam, Contact and Immersion  

ULTRASONIC THICKNESS (UT) IDENTIFIES:

Thickness of Material Surface Discontinuities •Sub-Surface Discontinuities

Keeping with our “ONE STOP SHOP” approach, Technical Field Services provide our clients with quality NDE services. NDE is a method to not only locate a defect, but also be used to measure something about that defect such as its size, shape, and orientation. NDE may be used to determine material properties, such as fracture toughness, formability, and other physical characteristics. Regardless of your NDE requirement, in the shop or in the field, Technical Field Services stands ready to provide services to your specification or ours. Whether it is inspection, all-encompassing code weld tracking or third party surveillance, we are at your service anytime or anyplace you require. Technical FIeld Services also offers reconstructive analysis for projects that were put “on hold” and may not possess the documentation required to restart construction to support applicable code requirement.


NDE CAPABILITIES:

  • Magnetic Particle
  • Liquid Penetrant
  • Ultrasonic
  • Radiography (x-ray, gamma and digital)
  • Eddy Current and Remote Field Eddy Current
  • Positive Material Identification
  • Brinnel Hardness Testing
  • Visual (CWI, API 510, API 570, ANSI)







LIQUID PENETRANT (PT) EXAMINATION:

Technical Field Services offers Liquid Penetrant (PT) examination as a means for finding surface breaking discontinuities on relatively smooth, nonporous surfaces. There are two main types of Penetrant, Fluorescent or Visible.

LIQUID PENETRANT (PT) IDENTIFIES:

•Anomalies Cracks Laminations Porosity Undercut Overlap Lack of Fusion Lack of Penetration Blow Holes Shrinkage

RADIOGRAPIC TESTING (RT):

Technical Field Services offers a complete line of radiographic services for both shop and field applications. Technical Field Services technicians are certified professional radiographers operate within all safety parameters which allow us to produce high quality radiographs that allow us to determine if an anomaly is actually a defect or can be accepted per code requirements.

RADIOGRAPHIC TESTING (RT) INDENTIFIES:

•Anomalies •Cracks •Laminations •Porosity •Undercut •Overlap •Lack of Fusion •Lack of Penetration

MAGNETIC PARTICLE (MT) EXAMINATION:

Technical Field Services offers Magnetic Particle (MT) services as a means of finding surface or near to near surface defects in ferromagnetic material. Magnetic Particle (MT) examination can be utilized in the field and/or shop applications.

MAGNETIC PARTICLE (MT) IDENTIFIES:

Anomalies Surface Cracks Sub-Surface Cracks on welds and/or irregular shapes materials
