2020-2021 Program Year Meeting Summaries

September 08, 2020
Pacific Northwest Section of ASNT Meeting Summary

On the evening of September 8th 2020 twelve members joined the first virtual meeting of the program year. A video prepared by ISC at the 2018 ASNT Fall conference was shown titled "Development of Extended Range Piping Calibration Blocks for Ultrasonic Weld Examination". The presentation by Brian Holloway, P.E. of Holloway NDT & Engineering, Inc. provided an attractive alternative to Ultrasonic shear wave calibration standards, both conventional and phased array, that will meet industry standard ASME section 4:2017 and the fabrication process. This informative presentation on the fabrication of alternate ASME Ultrasonic calibartion blocks for piping of various diameters and wall thicknesses was followed by a lively discussion amoung the members.

Pacific Northwest Section of ASNT Meeting Summary

Meeting Date: October 13th, 2020
Location: ZOOM meeting
Attendance: 10
Speaker, Company: Michael Kowatch of QTI Services
Title of Presentation:Benefits of Renewing MT Oil Carrier
Meeting Summary: A presentation was given on the cost savings benefits of using a newly developed specialized system for cleaning magnetic particle testing oil so that it can be reused many times. Following the presentation the attendees discussed what they learned and networked.
Proof of Attendance:
Nine members including one student member of ASNT participated in a virtual meeting of the Pacific Northwest section of ASNT on October 13, 2020. Lessons learned during the first meeting of the year were corrected and operations went smoothly. A video 1prepared at the 2018 ASNT Fall conference by ISC was shown titled "Benefits of Renewing MT Oil Carrier". The presentation was made by Michael Kowatch of QTI Service. Michael presented information that the carrier oil for magnetic particle could be renewed instead of being replaced almost infinitely. He presented information that he presented to Nadcap (used by aerospace NDE providers) to justify his renewal process. This process is advertised as being compliant with ASTM and AMS standards. A question & answer period followed his presentation which were included in the video. His answers to the questions that were recorded were enlightening and instigated a lively discussion among the attendees. The web site for his product is http://www.qtillc.com/mag-renew.html or information can also be found at https://magrenewstore.com/. On the Nov 10, 2020 virtual meeting a presentation titled “How Small NDE Service Providers Can Use NDE 4.0 as a Competitive Advantage” by Johannes Kraijesteijn is scheduled. This will be a HYOD event (Have Your Own Dinner).
