5 Most Popular Inspection Techniques for the Oil and Gas Industry

By Lawrence Agbezuge
April 17, 2017

"The oil and gas industry operates according to stringent standards that primarily strive to keep equipment running efficiently while maintaining workplace safety. Conforming to such standards is challenging because oil and gas operations involve drilling (both on land and offshore), reservoir engineering, well servicing, production services, refining and transportation of petroleum products, and many other operations.
Not only is it challenging to conform to industry standards, but it is expensive to maintain a safe workplace and to protect workers from harm. It is necessary to equip workers with protective apparel; to continually train them on practicing safety procedures; and to keep them up to date on practicing improved equipment inspection techniques.

What is NDT?

Many NDT (Non Destructive Testing) methods are utilized in the oil and gas industry. The best NDT methods address issues regarding safety, equipment reliability, and environmental protection and government regulations."

How Nondestructive Testing Helps Keep Railways on Track

By Olympus NDT Applications Team - January 31, 2017

"One of the oldest methods of modern transportation, the history of rail dates back nearly 500 years. With an expansive and aging infrastructure, railroads require constant support to maintain their integrity and operate safely.

Many types of nondestructive testing (NDT) techniques have been used to help ensure the quality of both the rail and the many components that make up a rail car. These methods range from the so-called “car knocker,” which uses acoustic resonance to detect cracked wheels, to the “oil and whiting” test used for fatigue crack detection in steam locomotive pins and axles. Currently, ultrasonic testing (UT) is the preferred method of NDT in the railroad industry.

Ultrasonic testing uses high frequency, directional sound waves to measure material thickness, find hidden flaws, or analyze material properties. UT requires the use of a transducer that transmits and/or receives the ultrasound signals being passed into the metal and a flaw detector to process the results. While UT is used in a range of applications, it is especially important for rail testing."

New Nondestructive Testing School Opens in Baxter

Posted: August 6, 2013 - 8:52pmb2ap3_thumbnail_Brainerd-Dispatch-NDT-Training.jpg

A new school has opened its doors in Baxter.

The American Institute of Nondestructive Testing focuses on nondestructive testing, which helps assure that structural and mechanical components are functioning in a safe and reliable way. Technicians perform tests to find any sign of weakness.

For example, students learn to inspect products like car parts or bridges for flaws like corrosion, stress cracking, failure and fatigue.

It’s just one of five schools of its kind in the country, said Donald Booth, CEO and instructor. The Baxter location offers something the others don’t: online courses, Booth said.

“I wanted this education brought to the future by offering it in an online, condensed form,” Booth said. “There are people with bills, family and jobs. They can’t take two years out for school. I say let’s get them in and in a high-demand job.”

All courses are available on an iPad, iPhone or Android.

American Instutute of NonDestructive Testing Now Open!

Although there are signs of improvement in some areas, the general economic situation for much of the country is still less than desireable. Of course the best way to continue improving conditions is for people to have good-paying jobs so they can provide for their families and contribute to the economy.

Some of the most sought-after jobs today are skilled workers that are trained in specific trades, hence the advent of the American Institute of Nondestructive Testing. Located in Baxter, MN, the school provides certification in nondestructive testing (NDT) in as little as 16 weeks.

NDT helps ensure that structural and mechanical components perform their function in a safe, reliable, and cost-effective manner. Technicians perform the necessary tests to locate the indicators and discontinuities that may cause failures or shut downs in such systems. These tests are performed in a manner that does not affect the future usefulness of the object or material.

There continues to be a greater demand for people who have NDT certification, and the Institute also helps with job placement, where starting salaries are often around $50,000. Certification includes twelve weeks of online classes followed by four weeks of on-site training and application, which provides the experience to go along with the education.

Learning institutions who provide similar classes have reported waiting lists for this in-demand certification. The American Institute for Nondestructive Testing also has limited space and is expected to fill up soon. For more information call 1-855-313-0325 or visit www.trainingndt.com today.
