Thermite Weld Inspections

Applied Technical Services’ certified NDT inspectors provide reliable thermite weld inspections.  In railways all across America, thermite welds are used to effectively join steel rails. ATS has performed Non-Destructive Testing of Thermite welds for rail construction projects all over the country.  ATS can help to develop inspection procedures, techniques, and calibration standards in order to meet industry standards.  In addition, over time, these joints experience an enormous amount of stress and fatigue loading, which could result in rail failures and/or safety hazards.  The railway industry has established many regulations and standards that require routine thermite weld inspections. Our inspectors are familiar with industry procedures; they provide instant results and timely reports documenting the presence, location, and classification of any defects.
