Non Destructive Testing

We are a certified NDT service provider and supported by a NDT Level 3. We work with state of the art equipment in a facility which measures up to world quality standards.

The vast technical background, together with broad experience levels and substantial qualifications of the BNT International team, does not limit our services to the major aviation cities within the borders of South Africa, but allows our NDT team to travel to any destination where the need for non-destructive testing is required. NDT Personnel are certified to ASNT-TC 1A, ISO9712 and NAS410.


The following, all form part of the in-depth Non-destructive testing process:

1. Magnetic Particle Examination

Magnetic particle testing of various parts, components and structures using an AC Yoke on site or using our industrial magnetic bench in our workshop. This method is suitable for detecting surface indications on ferrous components. We use black ink, dry powder or fluorescent particles to perform our inspections.

2. Dye Penetrant Examination

Dye penetrant testing of various parts, components and structures making use of Red dye and Developer on site or fluorescent Dye in our workshop. This method is suitable for detecting surface indications that penetrate into the parent material.

3. Ultrasonic Examination

Ultrasonic testing of various parts, components and structures in 0 degree and any sheer wave beam to access critical areas of the components. We specialize in weld scanning of structures, pipes and anything in between. This method is used to detect sub surface defects in parts and components. Ultrasonic thickness gauging of pipes and structures is also performed by our technicians.

4. Eddy Current Examination

Eddy Current testing of various parts, components and structures of non-ferrous material. This method is used to detect surface indications even if the surface has a coating on it like paint. Conductivity tests can also be performed using this method to determine the integrity and type of the material used.

5. Radiographic Examination

Radiographic Examination of various parts , components and structures. This method is used to detect surface and sub surface indications. This can be done on site as well as at our workshop.

6. Visual Examination

Visual testing involves the examination of any weld to be inspected. We look at various aspects of the weld condition, preparation condition and surface conditions thereby determining likely positions where further investigation will be necessary.
