TÜV SÜD, the German training, inspection, consultancy, testing and certification giant, today, announced the inauguration of the Non-destructive testing (NDT) and Destructive testing (DT) laboratory in Noida. The fully equipped state-of-the-art laboratory can help businesses prevent incidents that are hazardous to human life and environment and mitigate financial as well as reputational losses, through standard as well as customised NDT and DT services. TÜV SÜD’s specialists ensure products, material, manufacturing assets, components, equipment and systems continue to operate effectively and efficiently for a long time. The laboratory is fortified with world-class facilities to deliver reliable and accurate results that enable businesses to safeguard their operations and products.
TÜV SÜD will cater to conventional and advance NDT needs with state-of-the-art equipment and technical specialists conducting tests to ensure the sudden downtime and shutdown of the manufacturing plants and projects is reduced. TÜV SÜD provides testing in accordance with international standards such as UIC 960 (DIN 27201-7), EN ISO 9712 (superseding EN473), ISO 9712, PCN, SNT-TC- 1A, EN4179/NAS410 and API. NDT methods are implemented non-invasively and do not require the plant or process to shut down, thus being cost and time effective. Some of the testing services offered are: eddy current testing, advance ultrasound testing, long range ultrasound testing and corrosion testing to name a few. During inspection, the experts can also conduct a gap assessment and identify an organisation’s NDT training and certifications needs. TÜV SÜD can offer trainings such as Level I & II training for conventional NDT techniques like RT, UT, MT, PT, VT & ET and Level I & II training for advance NDT techniques like PA/TOFD, LRUT, MFL, RMS and Tube inspection.
Destructive Testing (DT), includes a host of invasive mechanical tests, metallurgical tests, corrosion tests and chemical tests that give deep insight and help determine the product integrity. The tests involve breaking down a product to its failure point and monitoring the performance closely through high-end equipment and software. The real-time assessment of strength, hardness, load bearing capacity, elemental and alloy composition state of the product can enable businesses to manufacture fail-proof products that are durable and comply with the existing quality standards like ASME, API, ASTM, ISO, NACE & BIS. The laboratory has the capability to carry out different types of hardness tests, tensile tests, weld tests, compression tests, impact tests, fracture toughness tests, fatigue tests, creep tests and many more. TÜV SÜD’s country wide network of offices and pan India presence assures a prompt collection of samples and quick transfer to the laboratory.
Commenting on the inauguration, Mr. Niranjan Nadkarni, CEO, South Asia, South East Asia, Middle East & Africa Region, TÜV SÜD said: “Technological advancements and digitalisation have transformed the way consumers perceive and expect quality. Product integrity cannot be compromised, and businesses need to bolster their manufacturing processes through comprehensive testing to ensure that the end product embodies superior quality and safety standards.
