CBI NDT  - Nondestructive Testing, Training and Consultation
Nondestructive testing will find flaws in an object that may not be visible to the naked eye without impairing intended functionality.
Many employers, agencies and codes require that inspector's are qualified and certified by classroom training, on the job training and examination.
Class content includes fundamentals, procedures, applications, calibrations,
codes, reporting and quizes.


All  classes meet or exceed industry standard requirements.
Reduced rates and combination methods are available. 
Certificates are signed by an ASNT NDT level III in the method taught.

Ultrasonic Testing
UT capability: 
Thickness measurements, flaw detection or material velocity.
Subsurface and surface conditions.
Longitudinal,shear and surface
waves can be produced.
UT class content:
Piezoelectric crystals,velocity,
wavelength,Snells law,critical
angles,near and far field
effects, beam spread,
attenuation,transmission and
reflection coefficients, the
decibel, flaw sizing and
characterizing techniques,
A, B, C scans, DAC, LCD, CRT,
pulser, receiver, clock, alarm,
gate, gain, delay, range and
Phased Array UT advantages:
Phased array is faster than conventional UT, flexible,
mechanically reliable,increase in misorientated defect
detectability and is used for  complex geometries. 
PAUT class content:
Principles,multiplexing crystals,
probes, (VPA) virtual probe aperture,control of focal depth,
steering angle and width,
wavefront, amplitude, focal laws,
S scan, hardware, software,
data aquisition and analysis.
Students are encouraged to bring their own UT instruments.

Magnetic Particle
Wet fluorescent or dry magnetic particle testing locates surface  
surface defects, is used to
locate cracks in magnetic metals. 
Class  content:
Principles of magnetism,
flux leakage fields, indications,
particles, AC/DC current, field
directions, curie point, UV
black lights and defect types.
    Liquid Penetrant 
    Type 1 fluorescent or type 2 visible dye penetrant testing gives information about surface conditions and is used to locate surface cracks and defects in magnetic and nonmagnetic metals   and some nonmetals. 
    Class content:  Principles, penetrant types and methods, 
    developers, limitations, UV
    black lights and defect types.
     AWS weld inspector
    Class covers the basics to prepare students for the exam including weld: Processes, types, symbols,
    defects, gauges, heat input,
    metallurgy, carbon equivalent, NDT / destructive tests,blueprints, plans, records, limits of authority and the responsibilities required of the CWI by many industry codes.
    We also offer classes in RT (film reading) of welds and RVI remote visual inspection digital imaging and data processing.

       UT shear wave of weld
    MT performed on part shows surface crack from one end to the other
    PT performed on weld reveals surface cold laps and porosity.
    RVI borescope magnifies       weld, takes still image and 
    reveals possible defect at
    toe of weld
