ULTRASONIC TESTING

Ultrasonic Testing (UT) is a non-destructive inspection method that uses high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) that are above the range of human hearing, to measure geometric and physical properties in materials. One of the primary benefits of UT is that it is a truly volumetric test. UT can determine not only the length and location of a flaw, but it will also provide information as to the type of flaw found.

Ultrasonic testing techniques are widely accepted for quality control and materials testing in many components including

  • Welds
  • Forging and Machined Components
  • Casting
  • Plate and Pipe
  • Composite Material
  • Weld Overlays

Advantages:

Detection of surface and subsurface defects.

Superior depth of penetration compared to other test methods.

Only single-sided access is required with a pulse-echo technique.

High accuracy regarding estimating discontinuity size and shape.

Minimal specimen preparation is required.

Instantaneous results produced by using electronic equipment.

UT Services:

Weld Flaw detection (cracks, inclusions, porosity, delamination etc.)

Corrosion/erosion on plate and pipes.

Bond integrity assessment on cladding and buttering.

Estimation of void content in composites and plastics.

UT Techniques offering:

Pulse Echo method (Zero Degree Scan, Angle Beam - Shear wave).

Immersion Technique.

Creep Wave Technique for surface and subsurface defects.

Longitudinal Angle Beam (TRL) for cladding and dissimilar weld material.

High Temperature UT.
