Do You Require Non-Destructive Testing on Your Lift Equipment?

Our engineers and specialists are experienced with NDE methods and seek out any underlying problems.

Non-Destructive Testing & Engineering Services

At Hite Services Ltd, our Sudbury-based engineers and specialists have many years of hands-on experience with most NDE methods. This experience goes beyond the theory and practice of a particular method or technique to the study of the underlying problem, the consequences of failure, the operating constraints and economics, and the prediction of remaining life.

We have experience in writing standards and specifications and in interpreting them in the field. We have supervised many technicians and fully understand the importance and potential of operator reliability. We can meet with your authorized inspector or your customer's inspector and discuss their requirements as they apply to your operation, whether it be in Northern Ontario, the United States, Guyana, or the Dominican Republic.
