Welder Qualifications Testing (WQT)

International Inspection’s Welder Qualification Test (WQT) inspection services include X-Ray, Gamma Ray, Dye Penetrant, Magnetic Particle, and Ultrasonic inspections in accordance with MIL-STD, ASME, and AWS codes. Currently providing x-ray inspection of approximately 3000 WQT per year for Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (PSNS), our Seattle office has developed a near production line approach to the inspection and reporting of these vital test specimens. “MIL-STD weld acceptance is one of the tightest codes welders must demonstrate their ability to, and U.S. Government review of the film is very stringent requiring an expertise not found in all radiographers.” With the award of a three year contract for the U.S. Government and the 1000 + WQT we inspect each year for private business ranging from Marine, Fabrication, and Nuclear industries throughout the West Coast, International Inspection has become a trusted source in the qualification of welders.
