ULTRASONIC TESTING

an efficient and highly effective method of detecting surface and sub-surface anomalies

find the hidden anomalies befor they find you

UT is a non-destructive testing (NDT) method that is effective for detecting surface and sub-surface discontinuities. The UT process is accomplished by inducing a high-frequency sound energy into the test material which reflects back once a boundary is encountered. By analyzing the reflections technicians are able to locate and size discontinuities and determine material thickness. Indications, or discontinuities, can then be analyzed against applicable acceptance criteria.

Advantages of UT inspection:

  • Efficient and repeatable
  • Permits sub-surface inspection without the hazard of radioactive sources
  • Can be automated for improved efficiency and repeatability
