Materials Testing Services include:
NDT Services
Since our founding in 1967, Applied Technical Services (ATS) has become one of the leading NDT companies in North America. Our Louisville, KY branch office specializes in Non-destructive Testing in Pulp and Paper, Chemical Plants, Construction Sites and the Utilities Industry.
Boiler Inspection Services

Fast, cost effective boiler surveys are performed by highly trained, experienced personnel using state of the art ultrasonic data loggers. Liquid penetrant inspection of composite tube material is performed to identify damaged areas, while non-ferrous coating surveys determine the overall thickness of the composite material. On-site computerized reporting is provided to give you quick, accurate results. Data analysis, trending and forecasting are also available.

On-site services include radiography, magnetic particle, copper sulfate and visual examinations. Additionally, we can offer Digital Radiography services, which eliminate typical “shoot windows” and allow all contractors to remain working while radiography ensues. This provides “near” instant results, enhanced productivity and greatly reduced outage time.

Paper Machine Inspections
ATS uses fully automated thickness crawlers capable of on-line velocity adjustments to compensate for changes in acoustical properties inherent in the casting process. This allows for an accurate thickness scan across the full length of a dryer can.
Internal visual examination of paper machine dryers is one of the most efficient and effective methods of inspection. During a visual inspection, the condition of internal components along with areas of shell thinning and grooving can be determined.
Magnetic particle inspection of the heads and journals of paper machine dryers, along with ultrasonic soundness inspection of the bolts is performed to find minor defects before they become major problems.
Regularly Requested Inspections for Construction Industry
Our Louisville office has inspectors trained and certified to perform the following types of visual weld inspections:
  • Decking Inspection per AWS D1.3
  • Bolt Torque Inspection per AISC
  • Certified Welding Inspector (C.W.I.) per AWS QC1-96
  • Stud Inspection per AWS D1.1 / AISC
Tanks, Pressure Vessels, and Piping Systems

Through the use of automated ultrasonic thickness crawlers, continuous thickness scans can be performed on the shell of carbon steel tanks and vessels, as well as piping systems. This inspection data is presented in a graphical format that can include minimum wall thickness calculations in accordance with a variety of standards such as API-653. ATS employs an experienced staff of API -653, API-510, and API-570 certified inspectors.
