ARC Nondestructive Testing (NDT) Services Overview



Welding processes and methods can introduce a number of contaminants and metallurgical defects into even the best welding job. Regularly conducting nondestructive testing ensures your plant or workshop won’t suffer from a future shutdown because of defects that may emerge from various tube failures.


ARC performs nondestructive testing services for any type of tubing you would find in a heat exchanger or condenser in the steam cycle, cooling water, service water systems, or process systems. ARC may also examine the welding techniques with our distinct acoustic emission techniques in your production and assembly line to see the parameters you use properly to join two materials. Feedback from this can be vital for any workshop or plant. With our regularly conducted tests, ARC can even help drive down your customer costs due to the improvement of your plant's conditions, consistency, and accessibility.


We take pride in the quality of service and professionalism we deliver in all tests we conduct. We know that your quality of work is only made possible due to the training, experience, and expertise of the people you employ – and the same goes for us. You have high standards, and so do we because they benefit everyone. Our staff is fully certified and regularly professionally developed in accordance with the American Society of Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) SNT-TC-1A standards.
