Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)

Pine offers the most comprehensive fleet of materials testing instruments in the industry. We specialize in carrying Non-Destructive Testing equipment for applications used in science and industry; ultrasonic testing, electromagnetic testing, material hardness analyzers, and XRF/OES (PMI) instruments for evaluating the properties of a material without causing damage. Pine provides flaw detection equipment for most methods where applications involve inspecting ferrous and non-ferrous metals, welds and other material. Inspection firms rely on Pine for our eddy current instruments when looking for small cracks and other forms of discontinuities at or near the surface of a material. When your plant maintenance mechanical integrity program calls for tank and vessel inspection instruments, you can rely on Pine to have the instrumentation you need.

Pine carries instruments from some of the most trusted names in the industry such as JIREH Industries, Olympus, Thermo Niton, and GE Inspection Technologies to name a few.

Pine’s technical support enables effective and efficient use of all our instrumentation. We can also assist in maintaining the equipment that you may already own, so be sure to ask your sales representative about our services. We also carry many of the consumable and PPE supplies that you will need while on the job, enabling us to be your single source supplier.

    • Eddy Current Inspection

      Eddy current inspection (ET) is one of several non-destructive testing methods that use the principal of electromagnetic induction to detect flaws in conductive materials. Eddy current is well suited to detect small cracks as well as other forms of discontinuities at or near the surface of the material, the surface…

    • Flaw Detection

      Among the industrial applications for materials testing, flaw detection is the most time-tested and commonly used in many industries where applications involve metals and welds. Pine provides the industry’s broadest selection of flaw detection equipment for most methods and applications, for example: Tank floor…

    • Leak Detection

      Leak detection is the process of identifying potentially hazardous leaks by means of various acoustic sensors which detect changes in the background noise of its environment and “hear” the escaping substance. These sensors are used for a wide range of applications, for example: Industrial…

    • Materials Testing

      Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a wide group of techniques used in science and industry to evaluate the properties of a material without causing damage. NDT equipment is an important part of our materials testing and inspection product offerings. Pine provides a wide variety of equipment for NDT applications such…

    • PMI (Positive Material Identification)

      Positive Material Identification (PMI) is an essential part of the material testing/material evaluation process that verifies the alloy composition of a given sample conforms to advertised specifications and assuring the chemical composition of the metallic material contains the correct percentages of key…

    • Tank & Vessel Inspection

      Tank and vessel inspections are a vital part of any plant maintenance mechanical integrity program, periodic preventive maintenance inspections, certified external inspections, certified integrity inspections, internal inspections and alternate non-intrusive inspection methods, especially as EPA and other…

    • Thermal Inspection (Thermography)

      Thermal inspection is a non-destructive testing method that involves the measurement, or mapping of surface temperatures as heat flows to, from and/or through an object. Thermal imaging systems create pictures of heat flow (rather than of light) and allow thermal information to be rapidly collected over a wide area…

    • Ultrasonic Inspection

      Ultrasonic Inspection (UT) uses high frequency sound energy to conduct examinations on steel, metals and other alloys, though it can also be used on concrete and composites. Ultrasonic inspection can be used to detect, evaluate and characterize flaws in many base materials as well as weld inspections. We provide a…
