Non-Destructive Testing

Challenge has long been recognized in the engineering testing field as a leader in not just geotechnical engineering services along the Gulf Coast, but a wide variety of Non-destructive testing examination (NDE) and Non-destructive inspection services (NDI) for clients worldwide.

Non-destructive testing (NDT) offers our clients an efficient way to inspect equipment without the need to shut down or enter a facility, ensuring uptime and productivity.  In contrast to destructive testing, NDT’s non-intrusive methods do not materially impact the integrity of the asset being inspected.

Our team’s NDT techniques are designed to detect and/or quantify specific damages and structural integrity.  Ultrasonic testing (UT) detects and sizes active flaws, corrosion, and erosion.

Inspection needs are seldom ground level. Our NDT services include at-height, confined spaces, and container crane structural inspections at ports around the world.
