UT SCANNING IN QATAR

UT Scanning

Ultrasonic testing is a nondestructive testing technique based on the propagation of waves. Ultrasonic testing uses high frequency wave for the inspection of materials. It captures the echo from the testing object and analyses the wave. Based on this analysis the system can detect flaws or informalities. When there is a deformity inside the subject the wave is reflected back. From this signal, data about the flaw, reflector location, size and other features can be successfully detected.

When compared to other conventional NDT methods, UT scanning is sensitive to both surface and subsurface discontinuities. It provides immediate results and detailed images of complex geometrical shapes can be produced.

Aries Marine LLC provides UT Scanning services on Offshore, Marine and Oil & Gas Sector and comprises of inspectors with Rope Access certification.

FUNCTIONAL UNITS OF UT SCANNING

  • PULSER
  • TRANSDUCER
  • DISPLAY DEVICES

BASIC PRINCIPLES OF ULTRASONIC SCANNING (UT Scanning)

  • High frequency sound energy to conduct examinations and make measurements.
  • Flaw detection/evaluation, dimensional measurement and material characterization.

 

ADVANTAGES OF ULTRASONIC SCANNING (UT Scanning)

  • Sensitive to both surfaces and subsurface  discontinuities 
  • Flaw detection or other measurement is superior to other NTD methods.
  • Minimal part preparation is required.
  • Electronic equipment provides instantaneous results.
  • Detailed images can be produced with automated systems.
  • Thickness measurement and flaw detection.
  • Determining reflector position and estimating size and shape.
