NDT awareness Programme for Insurance Partners

altOne day workshop titled “NDT awareness programme for Insurance Partners” was held on 28th November 2014 at the National Centre for Non Destructive Testing (NCNDT), Kelaniya. It was the first workshop held at the NCNDT.
At present, use of boilers in Sri Lankan industry is increasing rapidly.  Due to the potential dangers associated with the use of boilers, periodical inspection of boilers is crucial to ensure safety. Non Destructive Testing technique plays one of the major roles in securing the boiler systems in the world. But in Sri Lankan industry it is not yet popular, mainly due to lack of awareness programmes, for Non Destructive Testing (NDT). As such it has been recognized that improving NDT awareness in insurance sector, is vital in popularizing NDT in Sri Lankan industry as routine boiler inspections are mandatory in insurance.
