What Is Visual Inspection?
Visual inspection is a reliable and effective non-destructive testing method, with its main use being to identify flaws on the surface of a weld. At Code A Weld, visual inspection is a big part of what we do as we want to provide you with the very best service possible. We do this by ensuring that we spot any defects with your appliance/structure’s welding, allowing you to understand what action needs to be taken.
In order to ensure that the visual inspection is of the highest quality, we always bring our state of the art equipment. This includes a camera, photometer, measuring tapes, borescopes and much more. The equipment helps us to assess welds in more detail which allows us to provide a more accurate service.
However, as important as the equipment is, the inspector is by far the most important factor when it comes to visual inspections. The visual inspector needs to be extremely well trained with a good level of eyesight to spot any flaws with the welding. If the visual inspector does not possess these two qualities, then it is likely that a welding defect could be missed. At Code A Weld, our visual inspectors work to the highest of standards and have years of experience, so you can rest assured that you will be receiving the best service possible.
What Are The Benefits Of Visual Inspection?
At Code A Weld, we believe that there are many benefits to visual inspection and we have listed some of the best below:
Most of the time, the early signs of welding defects can be spotted through visual inspections. This allows the owner of the appliance/structure to get the issue fixed with minimal cost or disruption.
Quick, Yet Accurate
Since visual inspection only looks at the appliance/structure’s surface, the whole process is extremely quick. However, this does not mean that the quality of the service is diminished. The whole process is still extremely accurate, ensuring that no welding issues are missed.
Again, since it is only the surface that is being examined, there is no need for high-tech, expensive equipment. This helps to keep the costs down while still receiving a reliable service.
