SGS Industrial is a complete solutions provider for non-destructive testing services in industrial environments.
Be it in fabrication, pipe manufacturing, pipelines, plant construction, chemicals, petrochemical plants, shipyards, the offshore industry or conventional and nuclear power plants, defects and discontinuities in any material must be detected before they reach a critical size causing severe damage and expensive corrective actions.
Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is the most effective and applied testing method of examining the integrity of an object, material or system without reducing its longevity.
Non-Destructive Testing is also called Non-Destructive Examination (NDE) and Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI).
Non-destructive testing combines testing methods that are used to investigate the material integrity of an object or system without causing damage to it.
As non-destructive testing does not alter the object being inspected, NDT is a highly useful technique that can save both money and time during the quality and safety evaluation process.
SGS provides several non-destructive testing techniques to locate and size defects in products and assets, ensuring quality and safety.
SGS’ scope of services covers both conventional and advanced non-destructive testing in a global NDT network of more than 30 countries.
SGS Industrial Services can provide non-destructive testing services throughout an asset’s lifecycle including the design, procurement and installation phase as well as the operation of the asset.
For each phase of the asset's lifecycle, SGS provides the most appropriate and efficient non-destructive testing services to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the asset.
Using non-destructive testing, SGS is able to inspect welds for defects or irregularities that can compromise the weld strength, subsequently leading to serious damage.
The most appropriate non-destructive testing method for welding inspection is ultrasonic testing.
SGS has a worldwide track record with proven performance on new construction, pipeline installation, in-service inspection and expansion projects as the total non-destructive testing solution provider.
SGS continuously develops its services and applications.
Their non-destructive testing services are not only integrated with their AIM solutions, but also with their Material Testing Laboratories in addition to seamlessly fitting into their Supply Chain Services.
SGS’ services are packaged around the client company’s assets and production processes to be utilised whenever required.
