Ultrasonic Testing (UT)

Ultrasonic examinations are performed for corrosion monitoring and the detection and sizing of internal defects, flaws or discontinuities in piping, tanks, welds or other components. Ultrasonic sound waves are introduced into the test object, any internal imperfections reflect the wave and is detected by the receiver.

Magnetic Particle (MT)

Magnetic particle examinations are performed on ferromagnetic materials to detect surface and slight subsurface discontinuities. Surface imperfections will distort the magnetic field and concentrate the iron particles near imperfections, indicating their presence.



Liquid Penetrant (PT)

Liquid penetrant examination methods are utilized to detect open, surface cracks, or defects in materials. Red dye or fluorescent penetrants are utilized as well as various types of developers.



Tank Floor Scanning (MFL)

Several types of scanners are used to examine tanks floors and provide detailed maping of top side and under side corrosion. 



AutoCAD Drafting Services (CAD)

QTS can assist our customers with all their documenting and drafting needs including creation of isometric drawings and large scale printing.



Thermography (IR)

Infrared radiation is emitted by all objects based on their temperatures. An infrared imager is used to measure this energy allowing its temperature to be recorded without contact.
