Ultrasonic Phased Array Testing
Ultrasonic testing (UT) is a non-destructive test method that utilizes sound waves to detect cracks and defects in parts and materials. It can also be used to determine a material’s thickness, such as measuring the wall thickness of a pipe.
Phased array ultrasonics provides greater detail when searching for defects within a sample. The probes contain several small transducers that independently pulse. When the beam signals are varied, the beam is electronically maneuvered. The probe is swept over the area of indication, sending back multiple signals from the transducers. Providing a precise picture throughout the object.
