Ferrite Testing – FT

Vision Integrity provides Ferrite Testing throughout Western Canada and has several dispatch locations operating 24/7.

Ferrite Testing is a non-destructive testing method that provides data to determine the delta-ferrite in stainless steel – austenitic stainless steel and duplex materials. Ferrite testing can be used to determine the ferrite content in castings, tanks, pressure vessels, stainless steel piping and mechanical components. To achieve measurable results the material requires a minimum thickness and specimen size. The results of this testing provide information to assess material corrosion susceptibility, service suitability and mechanical properties.

Advantages of Ferrite Testing

  1. Can be used on a variety of materials
  2. Results can be provided immediately
  3. Verify corrosion-resistant properties are still effective
  4. It is a cost-effective method
  5. Equipment is highly portable


Our personnel are trained with our in-house program and can capably determine the ferrite content of materials. We can provide testing on sites and at client facilities.
