Certified Welding Inspector (CWT) in Islip Terrace, NY

Many jobsites ranging from pipelines, fabrication shops, bridges and structural steel fabricators need or require a Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) to help run their quality program, certify welders, perform visual inspections on fit-ups, root passes and final inspections of completed welds. CWIs come from different backgrounds, some have welding experience only, Some have inspection experience only and some have an engineering degree. All CWIs need to know how to interpret the welding procedure, welding qualification, acceptance criteria for defects, welding machines, and consumables. Integrity Testlabs can provide a CWI for your long- or short-term projects.

API 570

API 570

The American Petroleum Institute (API) 570 is a in-service inspection code. Designed for the natural gas, chemical and oil refineries piping systems to prevent failures before they happen. This code covers inspection, rating, repair, and alteration procedures for applicable piping systems. This code applies to metallic and fiberglass-reinforced plastic piping systems, also pressure-relieving devices associated with the systems. Inspectors are tasked with ensuring compliance with this code is followed. Integrity Testlabs has in-house and contract API 570’s to cover any needs that fall under the API 570.

Eddy Current

Eddy Current

Eddy Current uses electromagnetic induction with alternating currents passed through a coil. The coil produces alternating magnetic field. Used extensively in the aircraft industry and manufacturing industry to look for surface and subsurface defects. Also used in the Nuclear and Petro chemical industry on heat exchanger tubing. When the surface is properly cleaned Eddy Current (ET) can be a fast and very effective Nondestructive inspection.

Islip Terrace, NY Visual Testing (VT)

Probably the most important inspection technique and one we are gifted with is visual testing with our eyes. This is a very common, low cost, quick and effective way to inspect welding, equipment, and coatings. Visual testing is the most important tool for a Certified Welding Inspector (CWI), It’s a certification you can acquire through ASNT or with your company by ASNT TC 1A. Defects commonly found using visual inspection is excessive reinforcement, underfill, undercut, porosity, cold lap. If able to access the inside or root of the weld its possible to see lack of fusion, or incomplete penetration.
