Nondestructive Engineering and Field Measurements

The Nondestructive engineering group at LPI provides comprehensive, expeditious, and quality inspection services worldwide. We have over 50 years of experience in all types of structures and equipment. Our nondestructive examination services include remote sensing, ultrasonic flaw detection and thickness surveying, radiography, eddy current, liquid dye-penetrant, magnetic-particle, and visual inspection techniques. To supplement our visual inspection services, LPI maintains fiber-optic and boroscopic imaging units and complete in-situ metallographic replication equipment. In addition, leak-detection and subsurface locating equipment are also available. Frequently we devise special techniques or equipment for unique applications.

Our measurements group is uniquely qualified to perform a wide variety of static and dynamic testing services. LPI maintains a stock of strain gages, accelerometers, and various other transducers to respond to client requests within 24 hours. To augment data acquisition, our measurements team has special capabilities for performing residual stress (strain) measurements of structures in-situ. The measurements team maintains a variety of hydraulic pumps, rams and calibrated load cells capable of testing structures such as bridges, sub-way cars, cables, bolts, and buildings.
