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.
