Ultrasonic Testing (UT) is a portable volumetric examination that uses high frequency sound waves to exam, measure and inspect for thickness, flaws and weakness. Human and material flaws will never be completely eliminated and in-service damage and ware require continual “safe use” evaluation.
Single crystal normal Beam & Twin Crystal Testing (TR) for find Lamination in test plates & Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement (UTM) is frequently used to asses corrosion, erosion, and mechanical damage of the structural materials on tanks, vessels, piping, castings and structural steel. The testing is accomplished with portable equipment and the results are evaluated to industry standards, codes, or customer specifications. This method can locate and measure the amount of corrosion, erosion or voids within a material. This data is than used to assess the life expectancy of the component or if repairs are required before returned to service.
Angle Probe for weld scanning -Shear Wave sometimes referred to as Angled Beam Ultrasonic testing is a portable testing method that offers an effective test for weld inspection in pipes, pressure vessels, plates or in areas that other test methods are not feasible or particle. The shear wave method is great for fusion type defects or cracks, whither it is in a weld or on the specimen itself.
