Visual Testing (VT)

Visual Testing, with or without optical aids, is the original method of NDT. Many defects are surface-breaking and can be detected by careful direct visual inspection.. With a visual examination we look over the entire structure not just the welds. Doing this we look for more than just small indications we are looking for any form of damage, corrosion, heat exposure, and anything else that could hurt the integrity of the structure. A technician documents everything for a VT on a field report just like any other inspection and this is given to the customer for them to decide what they should do with the findings
