Non-Destructive Examination (NDE)


Visual inspection of our products to CWB, AWS and SNT-TC standards provide for the finest appearance to the finished product. Non-destructive examinations through the use of radiography, magnetic particle, liquid penetrant and ultrasonic testing allows us to conform to our rigid quality standards and ensure the finished product is as good as it looks.

In addition to traditional NDE approaches, Hooper Welding has the most advanced digital radiography equipment to perform expedited radiography of heavy wall construction. Further, the use of TOFD, Time of Flight Diffraction and Phased Array Inspection offers an alternative, volumetric ultrasonic inspection. Both approaches are technological advancement to inspection and very efficient approaches to heavy wall construction.

Through visual examinations and NDE above and beyond code requirements, our products are among the best in the world.
