NDT Testing

All of OMS NDT inspection personnel are highly trained and qualified to internationally recognised standards, with either PCN or ASNT accreditation and can conduct an inspection anywhere in the UK.

NDT Testing stands for Non Destructive Testing and is the process of evaluating the welding, materials and properties of a structure in order to check for any defects, without causing damage to the structure.

We are proficient in the following inspection methods: -

Magnetic Particle Inspection

Magnetic particle inspection is one of the most reliable, cost effective and efficient methods for detecting surface or near surface defects on a variety of ferromagnetic components.

Dye Penetrant Inspection

Dye Penetrant Testing is used for the detection of surface breaking defects in all non-porous ferrous and non-ferrous materials of any size including metals, plastics, and ceramics. Typical applications would be forged, cast, or welded components which suffer from a high risk of cracking and other surface flaws.

Ultrasonic Testing NDT

OMS are also proficient in various ultrasonic testing NDT and electromagnetic testing methods including :-

Eddy Current Testing

Eddy Current Testing is one of many electromagnetic testing methods used in non-destructive testing making use of electromagnetic induction to detect and characterise surface and sub-surface flaws in conductive material.

Ultrasonic Testing

Ultrasonic testing can be utilised to detect a range of flaws and defects including cracks, porosity, laminations, inclusions etc. Utilised more frequently in the fabrication sector for testing of welded joints we can confirm the quality and integrity using ultrasonic testing techniques, additionally we are also able to inspect castings and forgings with the same degree of reliable results.

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

An Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge test is a method of performing NDT (gauging) of the local thickness of a solid element (typically made of metal). This type of measurement is typically performed with an ultrasonic thickness gauge.
