Benefits and Applications of Inspecting Welds
International Inspection performs welding inspection services using several nondestructive testing methods to determine the efficacy of a welded element. We do this because not all welds are created equal; some come with defects (e.g., slag inclusions, incomplete penetration, cracks, porosity, undercut, voids, etc.) that result from not adhering to weld specifications. These imperfections can undermine the structural integrity or life-expectancy of a fabrication. Our certified inspection professionals bring cumulative decades of experience detecting and characterizing the flaws that can occur in weldments.
Companies typically request a welding inspection for one of two reasons: as part of a larger assessment of an industrial asset’s continued viability or to certify a welder’s competence performing a certain welding procedure. International Inspection performs both applications.
