Expertise in weld inspecting

Our experts have in-depth knowledge and experience of fabrication processes in all aspects of welding requirements to support your welding projects and staff. 

Our approach to weld inspection and monitoring

It is vital to detect any problems with welds before they escalate or soon after they occur so they can be corrected as quickly as possible. NDT’s weld inspectors evaluate the quality of welds at every step of the fabrication process before, during, and after welding.

Following the authorization of the Preliminary or Proposed Weld Procedure Specification (pWPS) and the sourcing of the base material(s) and consumables, our inspectors use calibrated tools to confirm the proper joint configuration, electrical parameters, ambient and base material temperatures and record all essential welding variables of the approved welding procedure.
