Any savvy businessperson can tell you that it is in your best interest to protect your investments, and a pipeline represents a significant investment. Proper care and maintenance of your pipeline can help you avoid interruptions of service and weighty costs in the event of a leak. Not to mention the importance of avoiding ecological disasters. If you think you might need NDT, or x-ray inspection in Dawson Creek or anywhere in Alberta, then keep reading.

What Is NDT and Why Would I Need It?

There are many things that can have a negative impact on the condition of pipelines. NDT detects the tiny imperfections that if left unchecked, would eventually lead to a leak, or even major structural damage. Some of the most common sources of pipe deterioration are:
  • Corrosion
  • Cracking
  • Shifting
  • Wear and tear
  • Human error

How Does NDT Work?

NDT represents a series of non-invasive tests that do not harm the structure being tested. There are three different types of non-invasive tests that we perform here at 20/20 NDT:
  • Magnetic particle testing—uses a magnetized section of pipe, a specialized solution and an ultraviolet light to detect weak spots and defects in the metal without causing any strain or harm to the pipe.
  • Radiographic testing—uses radiation to identify problems like blockage, corrosion, and structural defects.
  • Ultrasonic testing—can find even the smallest of pits and pinholes in the pipe wall so that you can accurately determine the condition of your pipes.

How Does NDT Add Value to My Pipeline Investment?

  • Prevention—NDT can help you analyze the condition of your pipeline before minor defects cause significant deterioration. Preventing leaks and product loss can save you a great deal of money over time.
  • Optimize safety—NDT can ensure safety standards are being met.
  • Efficiency—As a part of proper maintenance, NDT can help reduce interruptions to productivity and cash flow.
  • Durability—NDT can help you to keep your pipes healthy so that they don’t have to be prematurely replaced.
