ULTRASONICS (UT)

A Sound Level of Service

Ultrasonics is a time-tested industry-standard method of pipeline testing. Pro Integrity NDT® is very experienced in the operation of Ultrasonic equipment used to detect internal and external defects in welding, materials, and components.

Ultrasonic inspection provides a visual indication of internal pipeline material defects such as corrosion, even when those defects are not visible at the surface.
Ultrasonics is a proven method of detecting anomalies in welding, plate, pipe, forgings, and other components. Using Ultrasonics, Pro Integrity NDT can provide complete volumetric coverage for welds or material inspection. We can also use it to detect lack of bonding in clad and overlaid components.

Advantages

Best method for detecting internal and planar discontinuities

Can be used on a wide variety of materials

Instant results

Only one side of the part is needed for testing

Adaptable to automated systems

Depth of penetration for flaw detection or measurement is superior to other methods

Very safe form of testing for the technician and materials

Limitations

Uneven and rough surfaces can cause an issue

Standards and regular calibration required

Orientation of discontinuities/defects is important

Material preparation and lubricants are needed

Interpretation of results can be difficult

Skill and training required is more extensive than other techniques

Thin parts may be difficult to inspect
