NB INSPECTION SDN. BHD.

NB Inspection (NBI) Sdn. Bhd., is an establishment that was formed in the year 2016 to cater for the Private and Public inspection sector services. Some of the areas that NBI currently specializes in are: Conventional NDT Testing(Radiography, Ultrasonic, Magnetic Particle Inspection, Liquid Penetrant), Advanced NDT Testing(Corrosion under Insulation-Xray, Eddy current testing, Internal rotating inspection, Magnetic flux leakage, Acoustic emission testing, Remote visual inspection-drone, Positive material identification, Thermograph tests etc) and other Quality consultant services such as

The provision of various technical services at NBI are designed to comply with the International Standards of the Quality Control industry. NBI have an agreement with Affinity Test Services Sdn. Bhd., a company that is an approved vendor of Conventional and Advanced NDT services to Petronas in Malaysia.

The aim of NBI is to provide our clients with management services and inspections that are established on the highest standard of quality and integrity, and are available extensively with nominal costs within Brunei Darussalam.

To provide opportunities and train local individuals who are seeking skill and knowledge enhancement for career growth and in return, yielding its desired production output.

To ensure that all technical services are provided with the best possible and updated resources in dealing with established institutions and companies.

To be the leading industrial localized institute of choice in Brunei Darussalam with a reputation of being trusted and well-respected for providing technical services in compliance with international standards. To provide professional services with the best interest of all related stakeholders.

Non Destructive Testing (NDT) is integral to fabrication, construction and in- service plant life assessment tasks, providing raw data to engineers and assuring equipment integrity for clients as well as regulatory and insurance bodies.

At NBI, our professionals have several years of experience in frontline NDT activities across all industry sectors. This includes planning and managing shutdown or turn-around activities, and consultancy on appropriate techniques to target particular defects or plant issues. These NDT services can be provided both in fabrication shops as well as on the field.

NBI Level II technicians are also experienced in different specialty techniques that involve geometrically challenging parts, whereby In addition to the conventional method, we have deployed other techniques which meet specific requirements. These include Small Controlled Area Radiography (SCAR) designed for on-site radiography without disruption to the in-service live plant and the need for large areas cordoned off during execution of radiography.

NBI conventional NDT services include:

  1. Radiography Testing
  2. Magnetic Particle Testing
  3. Liquid Penetrant Testing
  4. Ultrasonic Testing
  5. SCAR
With ever more complicated material and equipment, our Advanced NDT methods include enhanced sensors, imaging technology and data interpretation. The usage of technology improves inspection speed, accuracy of testing, and interpretation of results.

NBI objective of bringing advanced NDT methods is to reduce the overall cost of inspection as well as the ability to store, evaluate and share inspection data almost immediately on a large-scale basis. Some of the Advanced NDT inspection services that NBI provide are as follows:

  • Phase Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT)
  • Time of Flight Diffraction (ToFD)
  • Digital Radiography
  • Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM)
  • Corrosion Mapping
  • Long Range UT (LRUT)
  • Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI)
  • Eddy Current Testing (ECT)
  • Internal Rotary Inspection System (IRIS)
  • Remote Field Eddy Current (RFET)
  • Remote Visual Testing (Boroscope)
  • Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL)
  • Holiday Testing
  • Positive Material Identification (PMI) without Carbon Content
  • Positive Material Identification Arc Method
