Advanced NDT Services at XCEL NDT covers some of the most technologically advanced NDT inspection methods in the NDT industry. These methods include Ultrasonic Shear Wave Testing (UTSW), Automated Corrosion Mapping, Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT), Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD), Positive Material Identification (XRF), Positive Material Identification, and Carbon Equivalency Testing (OES/CE). These methods are utilized to perform some of the most critical inspections and can provide extremely accurate results. XCEL NDT believes that investing in these top end inspection techniques is critical to future success for the company.

Ultrasonic Shear Wave testing utilizes high frequency sound energy to inspect welds and materials with extreme accuracy.

By utilizing automated scanning systems, corrosion mapping can be taken to a whole new level of accuracy and dependability.

Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing is an advanced ultrasonic method of testing that is highly effective for a multitude of different inspection tasks.

Time of Flight Diffraction method is a sensitive and accurate method for the non-destructive testing of weld defects.

Guided Wave Ultrasonic Testing (GWUT) is an NDT evaluation method.

Real-Time Radiography (RTR) is a NDT method whereby an image is produced electronically, rather than on film.


This testing is used on ferrous materials to determine various properties of the alloy.

Positive Material Identification (PMI) Inspection is the analysis of materials to determine the chemical composition of a metal or alloy.
