AE - Acoustic Emission

Acoustic Emission inspection, gives an immediate indication of the response and behaviour of a material under stress, intimately connected with strength, damage, and failure. Typical uses include the detection of cracks, corrosion, weld defects, and material embrittlement.


Italsabi has qualified Welding Inspector lincesed by TWI with the latest CSWIP 3.1 certification


Eddy Current Inspection (ET) is based on the principles of electromagnetic induction and is used to identify or differentiate among a wide variety of physical, structural, and metallurgical conditions in electrically conductive ferromagnetic and nonferromagnetic metals and metal parts.

Floor Map

Tank bottom inspection using the Magnetic-Flux Leakage technology (MFL) and Surface Topology Air-gap Reluctance Sensors (STARS). Featuring top and bottom plate corrosion views and capable of going as fast as 1 m/s (3.2 ft/s), Floormap improves the complete tank inspection process.

HT - Hardness Testing

This test methodology generally applies to industrial components intended for use in industry, with the prospect of using this parameter that can be related to the metallurgical structure of the component and indicative of its intrinsic properties


The Iris inspection is an ultrasonic control used on ferrous, non-ferrous and non-metallic pipes and uses an ultrasonic immersion transducer


The service reviews and processes periodic external inspections, overhaul or shutdown internal inspections, emergency shutdown inspection of the industrial plant. Italsabi plant inspectors have over 10 years' experience and are ISO9712 VT-UT-MT-PT-RT qualified.

MRT - Magnetic Rope Test

The magneto-inductive methodology is now officially recognized by the standards which defines new discard criteria for non- destructive wire rope test and an example of an MRT report.


Magnetic Particle Inspection is a method of locating surface and subsurface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials. The presence of a discontinuity, is detected by the use of finely divided ferromagnetic particles applied over the surface, with some particles, being gathered and held by the leakage field.

LRWG - Long range guided wave

Long Range Guided Wave Inspections


The P-scan system is a computerised ultrasonic system, for automatic, mechanical or manual ultrasonic examination of welds and materials.

PEC - Pulsed eddy current

Pulsed Eddy Current Inspection can be used in any number of applications, such as corrosion under insulation (CUI), corrosion blistering and scabs, flow-accelerated corrosion (FAC), corrosion under fireproofing (CUF), in the splash zone and underwater, surface corrosion, corrosion under coatings, and waterworks

TOFD - Phased Array e TOFD

Phased array technology uses multiple ultrasonic elements and electronic time delays to create beams that can be steered, scanned, swept, and focused electronically for fast inspection, full data storage, and multiple angle inspections. Phased array technology provides precise measurement with the most reliable results.

PMI - Positive material identification

Italsabi is equipped with Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ XL2 Analyzer that provides immediate, nondestructive elemental analysis of alloy materials from titanium to nickel as well as tramp and trace element analysis.

PT - Liquid penetrant

Liquid penetrant is a nondestructive method of revealing discontinuities that are open to the surfaces of solid and essentially nonporous materials.

RT - Bunker

Italsabi has his own X-ray bunker on the North East of Italy

RT - Industrial radiography

Radiography is used to detect the features of a component or assembly that exhibit a difference in thickness or physical density as compared to surrounding material. Large differences are more easily detected than small ones. In general, radiography can detect only those features that have an appreciable thickness in a direction parallel to the radiation beam.

UAV - Aerial survey and inspection

The first Italian company for aerial oil, gas, petrochemical and renewable energy inspection and survey

IRT - Thermography

Thermography is a nondestructive testing (NDT) technique based on the principle that two dissimilar materials, i.e., possessing different thermophysical properties, would produce two distinctive thermal signatures that can be revealed by an infrared sensor, such as a thermal camera.


Italsabi is able to perform all types of heat treatments on welds and pipes (located) in the workshop and on site, both in pre-heating and in post-heating

UT - Ultrasonic Inspection

Ultrasonic inspection is one of the most widely used methods of nondestructive inspection. Its primary application in the inspection of metals in the detection and characterization of internal flaws; it is also used to detect surface flaws, to define bond characteristics, to measure the thickness and extent of corrosion.

VT - Video boreoscope

Italsabi uses GE's XL Vu VideoProbe ™ system for video-endoscopic control.
