We Keep your project moving
NDE Inc. is committed to timely services, delivering Inspection
and Heat Treatment when and where you need it with
SAFETY QUALITY INTEGRITY and RELIABILITY.
NDE Inc. offers post weld heat treatment, mechanical testing and volumetric
examinations for weld procedures and welders. We can provide tensile and bend
equipment and macro etch in addition to radiography and ultrasonics. Our AWS
Certified Weld Inspectors can certify your welders to virtually any code specifications
and can write or review your internal weld procedures for compliance.
NDE., Inc. specializes in industrial radiography on congested job sites. We understand the cost of
customer down time, so our crews carefully analyze the job requirements to maximize our productivity
and efficiency while minimizing the impact to your schedule. Our crews are highly trained and maintain
radiography certifications in gamma and computed radiography. Traditional gamma radiography is one
of the oldest volumetric inspection techniques available and is suitable for use on virtually any material.
Computed radiography (CR) is an advanced radiographic inspection technique providing a more intuitive
display and requires less radiation exposure to produce images. CR allows the technician to view
multiple thicknesses on a part with one exposure and the resultant high-resolution images can be
adjusted and enhanced to improve viewing and identification. The high-resolution images can be easily
stored on flash drive or emailed with the CR Light version software to other parties for review.
Certified Welding Inspection
NDE Inc. employs AWS Certified Weld Inspectors to meet your project needs. Our weld inspectors can
travel to your job site to provide just-in- time weld inspections. We can also certify your welders to
virtually any code specifications and can write or review your internal weld procedures for compliance.
Refer to the Services list for a complete list of available inspections.
Call us before you start a remodel or new construction involving concrete slabs, pilings or buildings. Our
concrete scanning techniques can locate rebar, conduit, cables and many foreign objects buried within
concrete. We do both vertical and horizontal scanning to help you identify obstacles before they
become a safety or other costly mistake. Our trained technicians can quickly identify obstructions to
keep your project on schedule.
Positive Material Identification
PMI is a new, innovative and portable technology that can quickly perform a positive elemental
composition analysis on metals and alloys. We can use it to authenticate your vendor’s material
certifications, verify your non-certified material meets your specifications or identify your exposure risks
involved with certain elements such as lead. The inspection is fast, can accommodate a multitude of
sizes and configurations and does not require destructive samples or coupons. It can accurately identify
14 elements at any point in your process to support quality control and safety in your processes.
Field Heat Treatment
When properly applied, heat treatment has a multitude of benefits, including corrosion resistance, weld
strength and durability and material resilience. Pre-heating materials prior to welding slows the parent
material rate of cool and helps avoid material stresses, shrinkage and hydrogen cracking in the heat
affected zone (HAZ). Post heat treatment of a weld helps to diffuse any remaining hydrogen in the weld
and HAZ and reduces the risk of hydrogen induced cold cracking. Along with field heat treating, NDE
Inc. can also perform stress relief services where the temperatures are carefully monitored and
maintained to ensure stresses are redistributed uniformly throughout both the parent material and
welded area. NDE Inc. employs highly trained and qualified heat treatment service technicians who
understand our customers’ needs for weld strength and longevity.
NDE Inc. maintains a highly qualified staff of ultrasonic technicians capable of flaw detection, weld
inspection, bonding and thickness measurement. Our inspectors are experienced in the latest
techniques and are capable of efficiently evaluating your components with limited run time
interference. The advanced ultrasonic Phased Array inspection can provide real time weld inspection
without the traditional radiography exclusionary zones, keeping your projects productive. Phased Array
can also effectively be used to profile remaining wall thickness in corrosion survey applications and
provides a color coded visual demonstration of the component inspection results. The resultant data is
transportable and easily storable in electronic format.
Magnetic Particle and Liquid Dye Penetrant
Magnetic particle (MT) and Liquid Dye Penetrant
(PT)inspections are excellent options for high volume
inspection needs. MT and PT examinations can be used in a
variety of applications to detect surface or slightly sub surface
(MT) discontinuities and are extremely versatile to
accommodate a wide range of surface conditions and part
configurations. NDE Inc. technicians are well-versed in the
industry specifications and can effectively differentiate between
relevant and non-relevant discontinuities to provide you with
the most accurate and complete results possible.
