TESTING



MPI TESTING

Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) is a non-destructive testing method that can detect surface and subsurface flaws in ferromagnetic materials.

Magnetic particle inspection is often carried out to help determine an item’s fitness for use or conformity. This quick and relatively easy to apply technique is widely used in all industry sectors including aerospace, automotive, petrochemical, structural steel and power generation to inspect a variety of products and equipment such as engine, suspension and braking system components, castings, forgings and weldments.

  • Bench (Direct current/Head shot/Central Conductor/AC/HWDC)
  • Permanent magnetic
  • Yoke (AC/HWDC)
  • Ring bench
  • Coil/cable wrap technique
  • Prod technique

ULTRASONIC TESTING

EASTERN PETRO uses ultrasonic testing techniques that can detect common and uncommon discontinuities caused by base material processes and fabrication. We are experts in detecting flaws found in ingots, continuous castings, billets, plate and sheets, bar and rod, pipe and tubular products, forging, castings, composites, and welds..

Our certified staff of NDT technicians provide quality inspection services for a broad range of industry sectors. NDT UT services are offered in our laboratories, field locations and/or customer premises..

  • Shrinkage Cracks
  • Stringers
  • Laminations/Seams
  • Hydrogen Flakes
  • Burst, Porosity, and Gas Holes
  • Incomplete Fusion/Penetration
  • Welding Defects
  • Many Others

RADIOGRAPHIC TESTING

Radiographic testing is one of the most widely used techniques of volumetric non-destructive testing and is often used to reveal internal, surface and sub-surface irregularities.

Radiographic testing is widely used in a variety of industry sectors including aerospace, power generation, construction, petroleum, chemical and automotive, and for all types of components and parts. The technique is commonly used on welded parts, castings, forgings, composites and is also used for corrosion mapping and the measurement of wall thickness..


HYDROTESTING

EASTERN PETRO provides pressure testing facility up to 4000 bar with chart recording for pipe lines, BOP, umbilical’s, irons, oil suction hoses, water hoses, skids, pressure vessels, manifolds, air compressors & tanks.

A hydrostatic test helps to check pressure vessels such as pipe lines, cylinders and tanks for strength and leaks. The testing involves pressurizing a section of pipe with water to a much higher level than the pipe will ever operate with natural gas, and the test will validate the safe operating pressure of the pipelineusing recommended standards.


SPARK TESTING

EASTERN PETRO has Spark testing facility up to 40 kV. A spark tester is used before and after a rubber lining is cured. The purpose of the test is todetect the presence of any pinhole leaks, punctures, cuts etc., that expose passages to base metal.

PMI TESTING

Positive Material Identification (PMI) is the analysis of the metallic alloy to establish its composition by percentage of its constituent elements. Typical methods for PMI include X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and optical emission spectrometry (OES). PMI helps our customers to choose the right materials for their application.

Customers need PMI testing service when:

  • Working with a component that is part of an assembly or that is too large for shipping.
  • A sample that cannot be cut for routine testing
  • A mixed lot is suspected
  • Material identification/documentation has been misplaced
