Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)

Thermal, mechanical and electrical efficiency calculations on overall and individual machine basis. Analysis of different machine losses. Tuning of different furnaces like boilers etc. Preparation of annual and monthly plans and strategies for plant physical and environmentally controlled operations covering both mechanical and electrical aspects.

Various N.D.T. techniques of mechanical components like BoreScope Inspection, die-penetration testing, magnetic particle testing, ultrasonic thickness measurements, radiography, eddy current testing, On-Site Hardness Testing etc.

NDT Qualification: Customers know they have the right person for the job the first time. Our US & European Technicians can carry multiple ASNT Level II or Level III certifications in penetrant (PT), magnetic particle (MT), Eddy Current (ET), and Ultrasonic Testing (UT). Our clients can trust our technicians to provide a fact-based inspection document without binding the user to the consequences of an opinion based Report.

Borescope Inspections

Completed annually or at pre-outage intervals to identify problem areas before disassembly. Typically the inspection is an inlet to exhaust assessment of your gas turbine to inspect for any issues that could affect further performance.

Borescope Measurement Capabilities

We use borescopes with both 3D phase and stereo measurement capabilities and technicians have the ability to quantify indications on critical components.

Borescope / NDE TIL's

During your borescope inspection, we can accomplish the following TIL's. Please contact us for a customized listing for your frame type.


Outage Support

At your next combustor inspection, hot gas path or major, we use advanced NDE services to inspect your components. Contact us today for a quote specific to your frame type. Typical inspection points on all frames include:

Airfoil Eddy Current – Rotating and Stationary

All rotating and stationary blades can be inspected for cracks in one shift.

Turbine Disc Inspection

This inspection can be completed in under one shift.

Bearings

This ultrasonic and penetrant inspection verifies babbitt material is bonded properly to bearing housing. Penetrant inspection is used to detect cracking in the babbitt material on the bearing faces

TIL’s/TA’s

We can develop customized inspection protocols to meet customers' needs that meet or even exceed OEM requirements.
