Non-Destructive Testing, Mechanical, and Metallurgical Testing

Are you looking for Independent Non-Destructive Testing and Examination Services?

KTA offers independent quality assurance and verification of metallic substrates utilizing a variety of cutting edge technologies including Magnetic Particle Testing (MT), Ultrasonic Testing (UT), Liquid Penetrant Testing (PT).  KTA also provides interpretation of Radiographic Testing (RT).  We perform both shop and field inspection and leverage both portable Positive Material Identification Units and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) to ascertain proper grades. Non Destructive Examination (NDE) or Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) of critical components is imperative to ensure that our nation’s structural steel infrastructure is free of cracks and cluster porosity.  Occlusions and defects which may be invisible to the naked eye can lead to catastrophic failures in components utilized in skyscrapers, highways, and airplanes.
