Advanced Non-destructive Evaluation (NDE)
Field Services

Nondestructive evaluation (NDE) has become one of Structural Integrity’s most well-known specialties. New inspection techniques are continually developed by our NDE applications group, and our top-notch technical staff is dispatched to conduct examinations with these and other state-of-the-art NDE technologies worldwide. Some of the NDE services available include high sensitivity ultrasonic examinations of high energy piping components for the detection of service damage and early stage creep damage, boiler tube DMW examinations, header assessments (tubing, ligaments, header girth welds and long seam welds), boiler tube UT in lieu of radiography,

    corrosion fatigue examinations, high resolution modeling and 3D surface mapping, austenitic/ferritic piping inspections (Appendix VIII, Supplements 2, 3), vessel shell inspections (Supplements 4, 6), manual and encoded dissimilar metal weld inspections (Supplement 10), weld overlay repair inspections (Supplement 11), and ultrasound piping inspections in lieu of radiography (B31.1.). Structural Integrity also offers comprehensive turbine-generator inspections, including examinations of turbine rotor bores, blade attachments, disc rims, blade tenons, casings, peripherals, generator retaining rings, rotor dovetails, and coupling keyways. We offer conventional guided wave testing (GWT) and short-range GWT (SR-GWT) for screening evaluations of plant piping (including buried piping). We’re also available for third-party inspection oversight.

Laboratory Services

Non-destructive evaluation professionals in the Huntersville, NC, NDE laboratory have advanced inspection equipment and capabilities to inspect parts and develop examination techniques for the most difficult applications. Ultrasonic solutions include: conventional UT (low frequency and high frequency), phased array UT (linear array, annular array, matrix array, and FMC/TFM); immersion testing with 2-axis automated immersion tank; guided wave UT (short-range, long-range, and EMAT); Time of Flight Diffraction (ToFD); and numerous manual, semi-automated, and fully automated scanning systems. Electromagnetic solutions include: conventional eddy current and eddy current array (ECA). More traditional methods include: Magnetic Particle (MT) and Liquid Dye Penetrant (PT). An extensive machine shop with a CNC milling machine, lathe, and electrical discharge machine (EDM) is utilized for building calibration blocks and mock-up samples.

    Structural Integrity is also an industry leader in materials testing, condition assessment, and failure analysis. The metallurgical experts in our Materials Science Center, a state-of-the-art laboratory, in Austin, Texas, tackle the toughest industry problems related to material performance. Our services include characterizing the condition of existing materials, identifying damage mechanisms such as thermal degradation, creep, oxidation, corrosion, and fatigue, evaluating the root cause of failures, and reporting useful information for the ongoing use of components and materials remaining in operation.

Research and Development

Innovation has been among Structural Integrity’s core values since its inception in 1983. From the introduction of Annular Phased Array (APA) to our receipt of the 2015 NACE Materials Performance Corrosion Innovation of the Year Award for the development of our SIPEC dynamic pulsed eddy current (PEC) technology, we have always strived to use technology, knowledge, and experience in new ways to provide valued solutions for our clients.

Training

Nondestructive evaluation (NDE) is an important tool for aging management of plant components and Structural Integrity offers industry-specific training courses to help our clients understand the different NDE methods and technologies available and how to best put them to use to maximize the value of inspection efforts. Several of the topics that can be addressed include:

  • General introduction and review of the most common NDE methods
  • Hands-on technology demonstrations
  • Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) concepts and technologies
  • A general process for matching inspection needs with NDE methods, technologies, and techniques
  • Codes compliance and quality control measures
  • Recommended reporting requirements
  • Planning and strategies for the effective utilization of NDE results.

    Who Should Attend:

    Engineers and managers who seek a better understanding of modern methods for NDE of pressure vessels and piping as well as strategies for effective use of NDE results. This course may be of special interest to those involved with integrity management, buried piping programs, inservice inspections, aging management programs, ILI verification assessments, road crossing examinations, External Corrosion Direct Assessment (ECDA) and Internal Corrosion Direct Assessment (ICDA). This training is designed to satisfy the typical requirements for Continuing Education Credits.

    Training Opportunities:

    For larger classes, SI can design a utility-specific training course that addresses the topics and applications of your choosing. These custom courses can be scheduled at a utility site or office, or In one of SI’s offices. For Individuals or small parties, SI host scheduled training courses throughout the year that are open to all participants. Contact SI for more details.
