Visual Inspection

Visual Inspection of Welds can be performed using limited equipment; usually a welding gauge or fillet gauge and a torch, with photographic images if requested.

Visual Inspections are also carried out on materials, looking for process defects or damage. Structural steel is tested to BS EN ISO 17637, ASME V, AWS D1.1, BS EN ISO 5817 or EN 1090.

Level 2 & 3 Inspectors are qualified to PCN, SNT, CSWIP, IIW or AWS or ACCP.
