Nondestructive Testing (NDT)

Nondestructive Testing

Through nondestructive testing (NDT) and examination, Western Technologies can provide inspections without disrupting or impairing the serviceability of your project. NDT methods of inspection make it possible to verify compliance to the standards by examining the surface and subsurface of a weld and surrounding base material.
