Conventional nondestructive testing includes Radiographic Testing (RT) using conventional film as well as Digital Radiography (DR) and Computed Radiography (CR), Liquid Penetrant Testing (PT), Magnetic Particle Testing (MT), Visual Testing (VT), Eddy Current Testing (ECT), and Ultrasonic Thickness Testing (UTT). These methods are used as both primary and supporting methods for Code compliance as well as structural integrity examinations. XCEL has extensive experience and expertise in the administration of conventional NDT.
From identifying discontinuities to evaluating variations in structural integrity, our conventional NDT services delivers answers.

Industrial Radiography is a method of nondestructive testing (NDT) that can be used to examine the internal structure and integrity of an object.

Computed and Digital Radiography both measure internal and external corrosion.

Ultrasonic testing utilizes high frequency sound energy to produce highly accurate thickness measurements.


Visual Testing is used to detect any visual surface flaws.

Magnetic Particle Testing detects flaws/cracks on or near the surface in most ferromagnetic materials.

Liquid Penetrant NDT testing is used to locate discontinuities open to the test surface.
