Spree NDT was formed in January 1978 to provide a totally independent inspection service to the South East of England. With the ever increasing demands for quality assurance in all aspects of engineering, Spree has grown to its present level whereby many large contracts have been successfully carried out on behalf of major clients throughout the UK.
Our success is due to a permanent staff of dedicated engineers and administrative personnel, who are based at the main operations office in Sittingbourne, Kent.Spree now operates worldwide and our policy is ‘to move with the times’. We lead the inspection field in operating modern ‘state of the art’ equipment, and believe that this is the way to increase still further our customer base, which already stands at over 500 clients.
Our team of inspectors are qualified to PCN/ASNT/CSWIP standards and carry out all types of NDT (Non Destructive Testing) throughout the world.
Spree NDT carries full range of NDT equipment, including Pipewizard, Omniscans for corrosion mapping , Phased array weld inspection and Time of flight weld inspection. Numerous x-radiography sets from 75 kv to 300 kv including pipeline crawlers and digital equipment.
Full destructive testing is also carried out, including hardness, bend and tensile tests, charpy tests, low temperature charpy tests, macro and micro examination, failure analysis and full metallurgical consultancy and associated testing facilities.
Our laboratory at Sittingbourne is operated under the UKAS quality system and leads the United Kingdom in providing weld procedure and welder certification to BSEN ISO and ASME specifications.
Our portable arc monitoring units (PAMS) are capable of identifying problems during actual welding, this eliminates the need for the time consuming and expensive physical tests, which may still result in weld failures.
Spree currently tests to British Standards and American Codes of welding. We are able to counsel clients on the current and future requirements of these standards.
We provide engineers to work on behalf of the customer in all aspects of quality and inspection during the fabrication or construction of structures or plant. This includes the power generation, petrochemical, construction and mining industries.
