which are the most reliable NDT methods for detecting cracks

Hi,

I want to built a testing bench for detecting and quantifying cracks in carbon steel pipes between 2 and 3 inches. For doing so, I need to select the suitable NDT technique and sensor.
Which NDT methods are more suitables? and where should I look for information to go deeper in the subject

Thanks

How much product do you need to inspect? Over what period of time?
What is the condition of the product?
How fast do you need to inspect?
Do you need automation?
What size of crack must you detect?
What budget do you have available?

These are just some more questions.

Godfrey

Cracks which are open to the surface , will easily detected by PT or MT , MT or PT which method shall be use it is up the material , weather it is carbon steel, stainless steel.

In short Every NDT method has its own limitations and advantages over detecting cracks.
so different method will give u different results.

greetings.
