NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) Services

Conductivity Inspection

Conductivity inspection measures the electrical conductivity of a metal part or component. This is an in process test of chemical processing to verify the integrity and consistency of a chemical processing operation.

Hardness Testing

Hardness testing verifies the hardness of the base material, and can be used to validate that previous processes have been performed correctly.

FPI (Fluorescent or Liquid Penetrant Inspection)

Fluorescent penetrant inspection is a type of dye penetrant inspection where a non-permanent fluorescent dye is applied to a non-porous part to detect cracks and defects that are invisible on sight inspection.

Magnetic Particle Inspection

Magnetic particle inspection detects surface and shallow subsurface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials.

Eddy Current Testing

Eddy current inspection uses electromagnetic induction to find and characterize surface and sub-surface defects in conductive materials.

Copper Sulfate Testing

Copper sulfate testing verifies the effectiveness of, or need for passivation on a stainless steel part.

Boroscope Inspection

Boroscope inspection allows the internal surfaces of geometrically complex components to be visually inspected for surface finish integrity.

Valence performs all of these services to the highest degree of care, with approvals for most prime and military specifications. View our specs here.
