> Session Introduction (Slide Show)

The chemical and petrochemical industry is one of the main users of NDT. The NDT is applied during manufacture of components and forms an important part within inspection programs during service (onstream) and maintenance of plant equipment. The NDT in this area includes practically all NDT methods and techniques. The examinations are often integrated in sophisticated preventive and predictive programs which assure the reliability and safety of the plants. The sessions will include presentations from a wide range of applications by users from the industry and from research and development organisations.
