Alfa Chemistry News Updates: T,C&A Lab Enables Non-Destructive Testing

Alfa Chemistry today announced that its newly launched testing lab branch - T,C&A Lab now offers non-destructive testing service for manufacturers of materials.

While conducting non-destructive testing, a variety of non-invasive inspection techniques used to evaluate the properties of materials. Just as the name suggests, non-destructive testing is often carried out in a safe, reliable, and cost-effective manner and will not cause damage to the material and component. This is exactly the opposite as destructive testing.

“Penetrant testing (PT), magnetic particle testing (MT), radiographic testing (RT), ultrasonic testing (UT), eddy current testing (ET) are five conventional non-destructive testing methods. As they have matured over the past decades, they have become well-documented in codes, standards, and best practices,” commented the Marketing Chief of T,C&A Lab. “However, this is not enough. For different scenarios and to fulfill other testing purposes, we may adopt other non-destructive testing methods, such as leak testing (LT), magnetic flux leakage (MFL), microwave testing, acoustic emission testing (AE), electromagnetic testing (ET), ground penetrating radar (GPR), laser testing methods (LM), neutron radiographic testing (NR), and thermal/infrared testing (IRT).”

Today modern non-destructive testing can be applied to various application scenarios and purposes, including manufacturing, fabrication and in-service inspections to ensure product integrity and reliability. Even finished product or in-service equipment can be inspected. Overall it plays an optimal and indispensable role in quality control.

About Liquid Penetrant Testing

Liquid penetrant testing refers to the use of highly permeable liquid to penetrate into the surface defect of the component, and then try to make it show the defect. It is widely used in surface quality testing of non-porous materials such as metal, plastic, glass, ceramic and steel parts.

About Radiographic Testing (RT) Service

Radiographic testing is one of the five conventional non-destructive testing methods, which can be mainly used to detect macroscopic geometric defects inside the workpiece. Radiographic detection takes advantages of X-ray and gamma ray (such as photosensitivity) to determine whether there are defects in the inspected material and workpiece, so as to evaluate its quality and use value without damaging the item being tested.

About T,C&A Lab

As an independent lab, T,C&A Lab now provides quality and custom testing, characterization and analysis for a variety of materials. The lab serves many industries, to name just a few: Pulp and Papers, Raw material, Active ingredients, Surfactant, Graphene, Paint, Metal and Alloys, Textile, Rubber, Wood, Rock, Leather, Resins, Plastic, nanomaterials, Glass, Ceramics, and Adhesives.
