Ndt and technical diagnostics lab services

The safety of the operation of railway transport is largely determined by the technical condition of the track. The most important elements of the system ensuring its trouble-free operation are non-destructive testing (NDT) and technical diagnostics (TD) of rails, as well as monitoring the track using NDT methods and methods for measuring geometric parameters of track irregulations.




The laboratory of non-destructive testing and technical diagnostics (NDT and TD), established in 2006 on the basis of Research and Production Enterprise TVEMA LLC, provides consulting and technical audit services for the existing NDT system both to individual railways and private enterprises with their own railway tracks of non-public use.


The laboratory ensures the safety of the rolling stock movement by timely detection of flaws and malfunctions in the railway track, guided by the existing regulatory and technical documentation and using advanced resource saving technologies in the field of nondestructive testing.


The laboratory is accredited by the Federal Service for Accreditation, and also certified by an independent authority for certification of laboratories of the NDT "Sertinc" of the Federal State Institution NUTSsK at Moscow State Technical University n.a. N.E. Bauman in a unified system of conformity assessment in the field of industrial and environmental safety, security in energy and construction.


Scope of accreditation includes: railway rails and turnouts under operating conditions, railway tracks of common and non-public usage. Employees have the 2nd level of qualification in acoustic, and visual and dimensional types of nondestructive testing. Measurement instruments have a certificate of registration in the industrial Register of measuring instruments, approved for use in railway transport.




- Independence: The laboratory has no institutional links with the enterprises and departments of the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, the Federal Agency for Railway Transport, Russian Railways, OJSC, which ensures the independence and objectivity of testing results.


- It is the only Laboratory of nondestructive testing and technical diagnostics, accredited by the accreditation authority for non-destructive testing laboratories in railway transport with this scope of accreditation.


The regular customers of the Laboratory are large industrial enterprises, including socially owned enterprise Chelyabinsk ore management CJSC, Balakovo mineral fertilizers LLC, Lebedinsky ore mining and processing complex and many others.
