Liquid Penetration Inspection

Our liquid penetration inspection, employing both visible and fluorescent liquids, offers a swift, cost-effective, and reliable assessment of surface imperfections and defects. Here are some advantages of our liquid penetration inspection:

- Effectiveness on small objects, large areas, and unique or complex geometric shapes.

- Simplicity in usage, ensuring a straightforward and efficient process.

- Applicability to a wide range of materials, including ferrous and nonferrous metals and alloys.

Magnetic Particle Inspection

Our magnetic particle inspection, conducted with an electromagnetic yoke, offers a rapid, cost-effective, and dependable assessment of surface and near-surface imperfections and defects. Here are key advantages of our magnetic particle inspection:

- Detection of surface and near-subsurface indications.

- Ease of testing large and irregular shapes.

- Immediate visibility of detected defects.

- Portable equipment allows for testing versatility.

- Applicability in both shop and on-site environments.

- Less critical surface preparation requirements.

- Faster, more cost-effective, and easier with fewer training requirements compared to other NDE methods.

Ultrasonic Inspection

Our ultrasonic inspection provides a quick, accurate and instant evaluation of subsurface flaws. Some advantages of ultrasonic inspection are:

  • It is good for the inspection of surface and subsurface levels
  • One-side access is required to perform an inspection
  • It can be used to measure the thickness
  • Superior depth of penetration to detect subsurface flaws
  • Safer and environmentally safe compared to radiography inspection

Our technicians and inspectors are trained and certified in conjunction with the appropriate technical associations for each industry we serve. These associations include ASNT, CGSB, API, ASME, NACE, NADCAP, CWB, AWS and others. Our quality assurance group continuously updates our procedures consistent with industry best practices.

Petro Sadr provides the full spectrum of NDT/NDE methods, from the traditional to the most advanced, in accordance with industry, government, military, code authority and client requirements.
