Laser Photonics’ CleanTech: The Perfect Tool for Surface Preparation Before Non-Destructive Testing 

ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 22, 2023 – Laser Photonics Corporation, a leading global industrial developer of CleanTech laser systems for laser cleaning and other material applications, highlights a key application for its CleanTech laser systems. 

“Welds are frequently tested in industrial settings due to them being crucial for the integrity of large components like pipelines, boilers, and pressure vessels,” said Wayne Tupuola, CEO of Laser Photonics. “If a weld fails, the consequences can be very serious. Professionals in need of an effective method of industrial surface preparation can greatly benefit from using our laser technology, which minimizes the need for necessary shutdowns that happen due to scheduled inspections.” 

 Industry professionals use non-destructive testing (NDT) to determine whether a weld or component is strong or has potential defects. NDT is made easier for personnel through surface preparation and cleaning prior to testing, which is effectively done by industry professionals with CleanTech technology. Unlike other methods of surface preparation, laser cleaning ensures there is no smearing, folding, or alteration to the substrate’s surface. The technology accomplishes this while effectively vaporizing surface contaminants, resulting in an optimal surface condition for dye penetrant inspections and magnetic particle testing, two of the most common NDT methods. 

 Laser systems enable the precise removal of surface corrosion, paint, soot, oil, grease and various other types of contaminants prior to NDT inspections. Laser cleaning greatly improves the visibility of cracks and defects, while traditional methods like grinding can potentially conceal defects which complicates NDT. This is why a growing number of NDT training centers prefer laser cleaning over alternative processes.
