Title: Weld Testers
Post by: wellube on April 21, 2021, 07:43:21 AM
The Internal Weld Tester ( is used to hydro test the integrity of a new weld. This can either be a new weld neck flange or an adjoining weld within a pipeline. The traditional method to prove the integrity of the weld would be to flood the whole pipeline and carry out a hydrotest. This is time consuming and potentially very costly. The Internal Weld Tester overcomes this problem as it isolates the testing area, reducing the time and resources required.

Welds can be tested by destructive and non-destructive techniques. Most production is tested by use of non-destructive methods. The most common non-destructive tests to check welds are Visual Inspection, Liquid Penetrant, Magnetic Particle, Eddy Current, Ultrasonic, Acoustic Emission and Radiography.
