NDT Testing Environments

Testing + Inspection

Nondestructive Testing (NDT) Inspection plugs operate in various industrial environments where testing equipment needs to periodically monitor the condition of equipment like pipes and pipelines, pressure vessels like boilers and tanks, heat exchangers and more without causing any damage.

NDT plugs are designed to withstand a variety of tough conditions:

  1. High Temperatures: In industries like oil refining or power generation, equipment often operates at very high temperatures. NDT inspection plugs must be able to tolerate these temperatures without melting, deforming, or losing strength.
  2. Corrosive Chemicals: Many industrial processes involve corrosive substances, such as acids or salts, which can degrade materials quickly. Inspection plugs need to be made from materials that are resistant to corrosion to ensure they last long and maintain a tight seal.
  3. Pressure: Pipes and vessels can be under high pressure. The inspection plugs must be able to maintain a seal under these conditions to prevent leaks and ensure the safety of the inspection process.
  4. Weather and Environmental Conditions: If the equipment is outdoors, the plugs must also resist environmental factors such as UV radiation from sunlight, rain, snow, and extreme temperatures.
  5. Vibration and Mechanical Stress: Equipment in operation can vibrate significantly, and inspection plugs need to be robust enough to withstand these vibrations without loosening or breaking.

NDT Inspection plugs allow inspectors to check everything is running smoothly without any disruptions or downtime.
