After heat treatment, the pipe is examined to ensure compliance with API specifications and the high standards set forth by TSC, Inc. Non-destructive testing (NDT) methods are used to verify the product’s integrity throughout processing. Pipe that has been threaded requires additional examinations specific to the threaded area. NDT methods include, but are not limited to the following (please note that not all tests listed below are applicable to every product):

  • Magnetic Particle Inspection (MT)
