Ultrasonic testing (UT) is used to detect internal flaws in a range of materials, and is an excellent method for welding inspection. This technique works by propagating ultrasound waves within the inspected item, and can be used for detecting thickness in the case of determining potential pipe corrosion.
During our weld consulting appointment, we can help to determine if the best course of action to take for your particular situation is ultrasonic testing.
Ultrasonic testing (or more specifically, reading the results of ultrasonic testing) requires a trained eye and experience with this NDT type. Our CWI staff has many years of experience with UT and can interpret the results in a way that allows corrections to be made accurately and with cost efficiency in mind.
Having the ability to target the specific area of discontinuity, and effect repairs while maintaining the integrity across the welded area, allows for less down time and higher productivity.
Ultrasonic testing, depending on your circumstances, can be a very effective and non-destructive testing method that allows you to gain the benefits of x-ray testing without the more prohibitive cost of that technique of weld inspection.
D-Arrow Inspections is always looking for ways to improve our practices to increase the quality we provide to our customers which include plants, refineries, factories, pipeline companies, ship building companies, and many others in need of welding inspection.
During our weld consultation with you, our experts will help you to determine if an ultrasonic test is the right NDT for you. Contact us today to set an appointment!
