Conventional Ultrasonic Testing
Conventional UT is one of the most preferred methods of inspection because of its ability to detect, measure, and trend changes in material overtime. Finding changes in material properties is straightforward because UT transmits high-frequency sound waves into material and records the changes. The measurements can be analyzed and trend lines can be created, making it easy to monitor and plan for remediation and preventative maintenance.
Shear Wave Ultrasonic Testing
Our ultrasonic shear wave inspectors have been trained to meet all industry standards. We utilize digital ultrasonic instruments to detect, size, and map out flaws in various welded components. Shear wave testing, or angle beam inspection, is most useful in weld inspections. A probe consisting of an ultrasonic transducer sends an ultrasonic beam at an angle into the test area. As the probe is moved, it detects flaws in a weld based on the refraction of the ultrasonic beam.
Ultrasonic Wall Thickness Measurements
Ultrasonic Measurement: Ultrasonic wall thickness tests are utilized to determine the minimum and maximum wall thickness at any one area on a tube. A test consists of taking as many circumferential measurements as required to determine the minimum and maximum wall thickness in one area.
Micrometer Measurement: Micrometer measurements are utilized in measuring the wall thickness on the ends of plain end pipe.
Ultrasonic Wall Verification: Ultrasonic wall thickness test to verify that the tube body, in general, satisfies nominal wall thickness requirements.
