Jewell Ridge, VA Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)

If you’re looking for a very mobile, reliable and cost-effective method at finding surface and subsurface discontinuities. MT testing is the way to go on your ferrous material. When the magnetic field is disrupted by a break in the north and south poles the fine iron particles are attracted to the break in the magnetic field. Dry or wet inspections can be very useful with dry being the advantage when parts are to hot to use the wet method. ITL has many certified MT technicians to perform inspections on your welds or parts.

Jewell Ridge, VA 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.

ACFM; Alternating current field measurement in Jewell Ridge, VA

ACFM; Alternating current field measurement in Jewell Ridge, VA

Integrity Testlabs was one of the first companies to provide this inspection technique in the Northeast. ITL technicians have completed hundreds ACFM inspections on equipment shells in oil refineries in the Northeast. ACFM is a electromagnetic technique used for detecting cracks breaking the surface. Capable of also sizing the defect. ACFM can be used on ferrous and nonferrous metals. ACFM can be fast and effective inspection. It does need the area to be cleaned and electric available to run the ACFM unit. Wet Fluorescent Magnetic Testing (WFMT) can be used as an alternate inspection to confirm the findings of the ACFM.
