Ultrasonic Testing (UT)

Ultrasonic inspection is a nondestructive testing method that uses high frequency ultrasonic waves to detect flaws or determine thickness of materials through multiple techniques such as Pulsed Echo, Phased Array (PA), A-Scan, B-Scan and C-Scan.


Our knowledgeable and experienced technicians can perform of a variety of inspections utilizing a range of methods for your specific applications:


Typical Applications: Wall thickness, Inspection of Welds/Flaw Detection, Laminations, Inclusions, lack of fusion, Flaw Sizing, corrosion mapping, defect characterization



Ultrasonic Thickness Testing (UTT)measures wall thickness by directing a straight beam on the surface of the material and measuring the reflected sound from the opposite surface. When calibrated for the known material, the two way time of travel, divided by the known velocity through that particular material, provided a thickness measurement equally accurate to a micrometer reading.


Ultrasonic Shear Wave(A-Scan) testing detects flaws in materials by transmitting an ultrasonic wave at a specific angle into the material and measuring the reflected waves to calculate location and size of detected flaws.
