Nondestructive Inspection (NDI)

Nondestructive inspection (NDI), which is synonymous with nondestructive testing (NDT) is the examination of object materials and/or components without destroying or impacting the integrity of the inspected article.  The process involves analysis of material characteristics or welding defects and discontinuities in surface and sub-surface structures and components.  Nondestructive inspection includes test methods used to detect defects and irregularities in an effort to prevent accidents, reduce costs, improve product reliability, meet standard or regulatory requirements, and provide essential knowledge on maintenance service or repair benchmarks.

Nondestructive inspection is utilized in a multitude of industries to ensure the condition and continued functional performance capabilities of equipment and assets. Circumventing and troubleshooting issues assist in deterring equipment failures that may cause injury, unplanned downtime, revenue loses or any potential negative exposures. Nondestructive inspections offer facility managers direction in making cognizant decisions from the indispensable analysis with the condition of existing processes and assets.
