Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)
What is Non-Destructive Testing?
Non-Destructive Testing (often known by the acronym NDT) is a group of processes used to analyse a material, checking it for defects without causing damage to the item.
Two of the main technologies applicable to NDT are – Penetrant Testing (PT) and Magnetic Particle Testing (MT) – and through our value adding partnership with Chemetall, Silmid are able to supply a wide variety of chemicals and accessories to support both processes.
While the Penetrant Testing Process incorporates 3 product families: Penetrants, Cleaners/Removers and Developers to detect surface defects, the Magnetic Particle Inspection method can detect surface and near subsurface defects through a simpler one or two step process.
