Visual Inspection (VT)
Detect Damage and Defects in Critical Equipment
Visual Inspection, or Visual Testing (VT), is the process of looking over a piece of equipment using the naked eye of a trained technician to look for flaws. It can be used for internal and external surface inspection of a variety of equipment types, including storage tanks, pressure vessels, piping, and other equipment.
Visual inspection is simple and less technologically advanced compared to other methods. Despite this, it still has several advantages over more high-tech methods. It is cost effective and is also one of the most reliable techniques. A well-trained inspector can detect most signs of damage.
