A2Z NDT Inspection Services specializes in specialty non-destructive testing services to the commercial, hospitality/casino, power generation, structural fabrication and civil works projects.
GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar)
Ground Penetrating Radar is used to locate steel reinforcement, post tension cables, voids and conduits. Large areas can be achieved in a matter of minutes.
No radiation hazard and only one side accessibility is required.
With the aid of different antenna frequencies, depths from several inches up to several feet can be achieved.
The customer must rely on the technicians’ interpretation, based on grayscale representation seen on a screen.
RTC- Concrete Radiography Testing
X-rays performed on a concrete slab prior to core drilling.
A novice person with no training can interpret these findings. Post tension cables were found directly below the metal stud. These cables are shown next or superimposed to existing reinforcements. Alternate location shows PT cables, reinforcement and conduits in the area.
X-raying the concrete slab saved our customer hundreds of dollars in damages and repairs.
PMI (Positive Material Identification)
Positive Material Identification (PMI) is a nondestructive means of determining the chemical composition of metals. In a global sourcing environment, material can inadvertently be mixed up and cause serious issues while in service. A2Z NDT technicians can quickly and accurately determine the chemical composition of many different metals. A2Z NDT Inspection Service has experienced technicians that can provide this service anywhere.
Infrared inspection is a vital tool when performing predictive and preventative inspection and maintenance on electrical equipment, mechanical equipment, process equipment, rotating equipment and structural systems. A2Z NDT Inspection Services deploys certified infrared technicians to client sites to perform infrared inspection using a combination of high resolution infrared imaging devices, conventional video, still photography and infrared inspection industry best practices.
(wall thickness through insulation)
Profile Radiography is used to detect erosion or corrosion on non-insulated and insulated piping systems. The thickness of the pipe wall can be calculated and any obstruction in the pipe or thinning of the pipe wall can be detected using this method.
Tank Bottom Inspection
Out-of-Service Tank Inspection in accordance with API 653 requires an internal inspection every ten (10) years. A2Z NDT Inspection Services provides clients API 653 tank bottom inspections using certified technicians and advanced inspection equipment.
