Ultrasonic flaw detection locates internal discontinuities in metals, plastics, and ceramics.
Sound waves are reflected from flaws and can be located, identified and sized from reflector signal information displayed on the portable instrument screen.
Ultrasonic testing is a well established test method in many industries, and is an ideal inspection tool for:
- Welded joints
- Remote wall corrosion surveys
Corrosion surveys can also be carried out using hand held ultrasonic thickness gauges which give spot thickness readings as a general indicator of wall thinning.
