Ultrasonic Testing & Inspection Services
Ultrasonic Testing (UT)
Ultrasonic Testing Inspection (UT) is one of the most accurate NDT methods, to detect sub surface flaws deep within the test part, for steel thickness from 8 mm thick up to as thick as commercially available (up to approx. 200 mm deep) and is highly sensitive so can detect extremely small flaws.
UT uses electronically produced high-frequency sound waves to penetrate metals such as steel and other alloys and give readings on a diagnostic machine which is attached to the transmitter. Short ultrasonic pulses are passed through the metal. As there are no chemicals used, this method is non-hazardous so will not affect others nearby, and as the results are immediate, decisions can be made regarding the faults in the structure of the metal.
Ultrasonic Thickness Testing
Ultrasonic testing can also be used to test the thickness of different materials. As sound waves travel at different speeds through different materials, our inspectors can measure the time it takes for the sound waves to travel through the material and back to determine the thickness. UTT inspection methods are used to examine the extent or corrosion and erosion inside of pipes and vessels to allow for informed decision making about repairing and replacing assets.
