NDT Infrastructure Inspections
Much of our infrastructure is aging, and it’s imperative to apply NDT infrastructure inspections to ensure that the bridges, roads, buildings, railways, dams and other structures we rely on everyday are still structurally and operationally sound.

What are NDT Infrastructure Inspections?

For existing and new structures, NDT infrastructure inspections can help assess potential flaws and conditions that are not apparent to the eye. Hidden defects such as corrosion, cracking, decay and other effects of aging can reduce the strength, safety and durability of a structure. NDT detects these issues to ensure the reliability of your structure or determine the extent of any damage in the case of a catastrophic event. Primary stakeholders in this field includes:
  • Industrial Companies
  • Construction Companies
  • Banking and Insurances Companies
  • Public/Municipal Bodies
  • Real Estate Companies
We use a variety of different methods and technologies to perform these tests. NDT infrastructure inspections are particularly important for infrastructure because we want to keep things like the roads and bridges that we use everyday to go to work or receive essential goods safe without a lot of disruption to those daily activities.

NDT for Infrastructure Inspections

From the initial design, through every phase of construction, and continuing throughout the life of the structure, our testing technologies can detect faults before any damage can occur. This avoids major closures or potential catastrophic failures. U.S. Inspection and NDT has extensive DNT capabilities, and offers numerous non-invasive methods of testing, including:
  • Radiographic Testing

    Radiographic Testing, which involves the use of X-ray technology to monitor and pinpoint potential trouble spots, such as failing connections or weak spots. Learn more about our Radiographic Testing

  • Magnetic Particle Testing

    Magnetic Particle Testing uses magnetic fields to spot miniscule cracks and some subsurface issues in structural steel. Learn more about our Magnetic Particle Testing

  • Liquid Penetrant Testing

    Liquid Penetrant Testing involves using a dye that fluoresces under ultraviolet light to identify even the smallest of flaws in metals, plastics and ceramics. Learn more about our Liquid Penetrant Testing

  • Ultrasonic Testing

    Ultrasonic Testing finds flaws reliably without the use of chemicals or the need to cut into what is being tested. Sound waves can scan on and underneath the surface with incredible accuracy. Learn more about our Ultrasonic Testing
