Continued learning, development, and training are all part of our core values. We recently trained our production and engineering teams received training on Eddy Current Testing.
Eddy Current Testing (ET) is a form of non-destructive testing based on electro-magnetic induction to show surface and sub-surface discontinuities in ferrous or non-ferrous materials. Developed during WWII, eddy current testing is ideal for use on navy ships due to its portability—ET is a rapid inspection tool that is extremely compact and does not require dyes or additional chemical materials that are used in other common NDT testing such as Magnetic Particle or Penetrant Inspection. ET detects seams, laps, cracks, voids, and inclusions and can be used by in-service maintenance engineers to inspect various forms of pressure and non-pressure corrosion in pipes.
At the Parts Life, Inc. Family of Companies, we have a variety of nondestructive testing methods, including penetrative inspection, seal endurance testing, salt fog testing, magnetic testing, particle testing, and eddy current testing. Parts Life, Inc. has retained the American Institute of Nondestructive Testing as its’ responsible NDT Level III and NDT training provider.
