NDT Testing & Inspection Services

Non-Destructive Testing

At Atlantic Hardchrome, we pride ourselves on our Inspection and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) capabilities. But we're about more than just implementing the latest techniques or utilizing the most advanced technology. What truly sets us apart is our understanding that in the realms of industry, the invisible defects can be the most destructive.

Just as a small leak can sink a great ship, a tiny imperfection can severely affect your components’ safety, reliability, and longevity. Recognizing this, we've made it our mission to uncover what's hidden.

Our inspection and NDT services, including corrosion testing, are not just about avoiding failures but are geared towards promoting operational excellence. Our technicians don't just identify anomalies; they're specialists in understanding the story behind each defect and its implications on your operations.

With Atlantic Hardchrome's inspection and NDT services, you're not just ensuring your components' structural integrity; you're partnering with a team dedicated to preserving the safety and efficiency of your operations. The true value of our services is realized in the enhanced performance, extended equipment life, and increased safety margins of your operations.

Visual Testing (VT)

One of the most common NDT methods, VT, involves a detailed visual examination of components to identify any visible defects.

Liquid Penetrant Testing (PT)

This method uses a penetrating dye to detect surface-breaking defects in non-porous materials.

Hydrostatic Testing (HT)

A method using liquids or gases to confirm new and recycled components’ strength and sealing integrity.

Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)

Used primarily for ferrous materials, this method identifies surface and near-surface defects.

Eddy Current Testing (ET)

An electromagnetic method used to detect cracks and other defects in materials.


Uses computerized and hand-held metrology to inspect parts to their finest detail.
