MQC Labs is a privately held, US owned, small business and has provided nondestructive testing services for 35 years.
We offer cutting edge equipment, and a staff of exceptionally trained inspection personnel. Our automated digital radiography (DR), computed tomography (CT) and computed radiography (CR) capabilities allow us to provide the most cost efficient examinations in the business.
Radiography is carried out using X-rays or Gamma rays. Radiographic testing (RT) is one of the most reliable and widely used NDT methods. RT works on the principles of differential absorption of radiation. Conventional film, digital radiography (DR) panels and computed radiography (CR) imaging plates are available for image capture.
Penetrant is useful for detecting flaws open to the surface, and is the most sensitive inspection method for surface flaws. Visible and fluorescent penetrant can be used depending on specification requirements.
Automated Through Transmission & Pulse Echo (modified immersion) testing can be performed in our shop on most flat or cylindrical product.
This method is useful for detection of surface and shallow subsurface flaws. A magnetic field is induced in the test object and a finely divided ferromagnetic particle powder or slurry is applied while the part is magnetized.
Visual testing (VT) is one of the oldest and most widely used NDE methods to derive a multitude of useful information from a variety of material characteristics and properties.
GPR is typically used for concrete slab, and deck inspection to locate internal objects, such as post-tension cables, and conduit in order to avoid damage when penetrations are made.
