Visual Examination

Visual inspection is the first tool in the inspection of any structure or component. Prior to any further NDE, a thorough visual inspection will be carried out. This inspection will reveal corrosion, damage and wear much more readily than other methods and can indicate where other investigative methods should be targeted. Over 90% of defects are found by the naked eye.

In 2006 LTC added remote visual inspection to its range of services. This enables inspection engineers to look into spaces where  previously there had been no access, and can allow the team to inspect items in-situ, which would otherwise have to be stripped.

Our system utilises a miniature video camera (Snake Eye) attached to an articulated arm. The images are viewed on screen and can be recorded on a hard drive video recorder. The stored video files can be uploaded to computer for inclusion in reports or distribution between engineers and clients.
