Non-Destructive Testing

Effective condition assessment of power plant production components

power plant Non-Destructive Testing (ndt)

Whether it concerns overhauls, new plant constructions, maintenance outages, or component replacements, inspections must be carried out quickly and efficiently. Laborelec offers power plants and industry a unique service that includes a broad range of conventional and advanced non-destructive testing techniques focused on minimizing maintenance costs and production downtime.

Selecting the best non-destructive inspection techniques for each situation

Before starting the investigation, Laborelec can select the most appropriate non-destructive testing technique with the help of simulation software. Our experts use the CIVA software—developed by the CEA (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique)—to accurately model a component, taking into account its material characteristics and geometry. The tool enables us to simulate any type of defect, based on historical data or visual findings. After conducting parametric studies, our experts select the best NDT equipment for inspecting the given component.

Mastering and developing a vast array of non-destructive testing techniques

The Laborelec experts have mastered a vast array of non-destructive testing (NDT) services:

Standard Non-Destructive Testing:

Advanced Non-Destructive Testing

Laborelec has the tools, knowledge, and experience to perform these inspections, and correctly interpret the results. Based on these results, our experts provide advice on the root cause of malfunctioning equipment and assess their lifetime expectancy. Our experts also stay updated on the latest international developments in inspection methods and novel, promising techniques.

Neutral NDT follow-up of third-party condition assessment

In cases where the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or a third-party contractor conducts the inspection, Laborelec offers unbiased technical support. Our experts monitor the manufacturer or contractor's investigation to ensure that it is performed according to the appropriate procedures and with the customer’s best interests in mind.

Non-destructive testing for boilers, gas turbines and steam turbines

From selecting the best NDT technique to monitoring inspection quality

Periodic overhauls are vital for the safe operation of boilers, gas and steam turbines. In order to minimize downtime during such overhauls, the inspections need to be carried out quickly and efficiently. Non-destructive testing (NDT) is crucial in order to achieve this goal. Over the years, NDT techniques have been used to assess the condition of specific components and identify defects. However, situation-specific questions still arise. Is this technique the most appropriate one in this context? Is it being applied according to the correct quality standards? Laborelec provides advice on all aspects of NDT for boilers, gas turbines and steam turbines based on its extensive expertise and research experience in this domain.

A broad array of NDT techniques is available for the condition assessment of boilers, gas and steam turbines. Laborelec has in-depth knowledge of all of these techniques and their advantages and limitations. This enables us to select the most appropriate technique for each particular context. Laborelec can help ensure the safe and efficient operation of your boiler, gas and steam turbine. Our advice will enable you to maximize the equipment’s availability, avoid damages, and enhance your maintenance management.
