As we’ve discussed in previous articles, Ultrasonic technology is a reliable method of inspection with a wide variety of applications. In addition to being used for flaw detection, ultrasonic technology can also be used to determine the thickness of metallic pipes, storage tanks, boilers, and vessels (to name a few applications). Learn more about the benefits of this process below.
One of the most popular NDT techniques used for testing materials is the ultrasonic testing technique. Ultrasonic flaw detectors are incredibly reliable, efficient, and capable of identifying any flaws in a material with minimal interruption to operating processes.
Internal inspection is an integral part of maintaining the daily operation and reliability of your pipelines. While exterior evaluation can help identify specific cracks and faults, interior inspections give you a more full picture and allow for proactive preventative maintenance.
Inspecting your large-diameter steel pipes can be a difficult task, but it's a job that carries a great deal of importance when it comes to protecting your infrastructure. Lines carrying raw water or hazardous materials are subject to corrosion that can cause leaks and failures if left undetected.
