STEM is a great stepping stone for those interested in working in the nondestructive testing field, Aerospace engineering and operations or anything within the broad field of engineering. This is the fastest growing sector, growing faster than the average for any occupation, and are projected to grow from now until 2022.Read More
Sulfidation Corrosion is a main source for causing leaks in piping and pressure vessels in the crude oil industry. Sulfidation Corrosion can lead to unplanned outages, large property losses and even injuries due to the naturally occurring sulfur compounds found in crude oil. At Space Science Services, we use NDT technology to assess the level of thickness that is remaining in your piping and vessels to help prevent these worst-case scenarios.Read More
Magnetic particle examination (MT) can be a useful nondestructive exam method during new constructution or in-service inspections. For quick, low-cost inspections, MT is often the best NDE method for detecting surface and slightly subsurface discontinuties. The following visual illustrates steps of dry powder, nonfluroescent, yoke technique of Magnetic Particle testing.
Space Science Services provides metallurgical testing for NASA to ensure that various metal components used in metal structures are sound. The company checks welds to ensure they’re in good condition and also inspects metal components to ensure they’re in working order. Space Science Services uses a number of imaging technologies to inspect components, including radiographic testing and ultrasound testing.Read More
One thing Don Geiger does not lack is credentials. Besides being an AWS CWI, he’s a professional engineer registered in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and Ohio; a certified API 653, 510, and 570 inspector; and holds ASNT Level III certifications in radiography and magnetic particle testing. And, at age 86, he’s not short of experience either.Read More
