• Pinholes & Holidays in Paints, ASTM D5162/ ISO 8289

8.1- None – Destructive (NDT) Tests for welding


Non-destructive testing (NDT) is essential to ensuring that defects in welds are detected on an assembly line prior to being used. Lacking an effective means by which to determine whether errors exist, faulty welds could lead to problems, some of which could be disastrous depending on the items being welded (for example oil or gas pipelines and tanks) to include and not limited the following tests

◦ Visual Testing (VT):

◦ Liquid penetrant Testing (PT):

◦ Ultrasonic Testing (UT):

◦ Vacuum Testing (UT):
