Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT Inspection)
PAUT Inspection (Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing) is one of the advanced Ultrasonic testing methods which are famous for its higher probability of detection and precise measurement capability. PAUT Inspection can be used as a direct replacement for radiography testing for piping. This is an advanced method of ultrasonic testing that has applications in medical imaging and industrial non-destructive testing.
Aries Marine and Engineering Service use PAUT Inspection for corrosion mapping to estimate thickness at finite points in pressure vessels, pipes, tanks etc. This ultrasonic testing method can also perform scans on complex geometries including painted cylindrical, trapezoidal fuel transport tankers. We also provide butt welds in pipes and pressure vessels and large structures using PAUT.
PAUT Inspection / Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing reduces inspection time by simultaneously collecting multiple angle ultrasonic data in a single pass scan from either side of the weld. By ensuring accurate scan plans and specifically designed techniques, construction defects are readily detected, sized, and sentenced accordingly.
Use of PAUT Inspection (Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing)
The Major use of Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing or PAUT Inspection is to evaluate the entire volume of a weld for the detection of potentially detrimental discontinuities in a weld in accordance with written procedures, guidelines, standards and codes. It covers the materials and components, design, fabrication, assembly, erection, examination, inspection and testing of piping.
Advantages of PAUT Inspection (Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing)
