non-destructive testing

Plant owners and operators in most industries are required or encouraged to comply with a variety of codes and standards. When our clients ask us to complete industrial inspections of their facilities, structures, and equipment for compliance, we often use non-destructive testing techniques.

Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a wide group of analysis techniques used to evaluate the properties of a material, component, or system without causing damage. Because NDT does not permanently alter the article being inspected, it is a technique that can save both money and time in product evaluation, troubleshooting, and research.

Barr assists clients with NDT and inspecting of tanks, piping, pressure vessels, cranes, utilities, and structures including concrete, masonry, and welds. We’ve provided inspections for clients in the mining, minerals processing, power, steel, petroleum, petrochemical, chemical, fabricating, pulp and paper industries, as well as municipalities, state/public utilities, processing plants, and miscellaneous commercial facilities.
