FAQ

What defects can you find with a flaw detector?
A variety of flaws occur in materials and parts either during manufacturing or due to the aging effect in the field and can be found with a flaw detector: Void / Porosity Inclusions Cracks (subsurface or surface) Weld Bond Defects (incomplete melting, HAZ) Corrosion / Oxidation Abrasion / Erosion Machining or Grinding Damage Forging Flaws Casting Flaws Forming / Rolling Mill Flaws Adhesive / Sealant Debonding Composite / Honeycomb Delamination Wire Rope / Cable Flaws Pipe / Tubing Flaws

What does traditional or conventional UT mean?
Conventional Ultrasonic Testing (UT) inspection is a commonly-used non-destructive testing (NDT) technique that measures the propagation of mechanical vibrations (ultrasonic waves) through the material to examine properties, measure thickness, determine elasticity, and detect a range of discontinuities, including corrosion/erosion, flaws, cracks, and more. The instrument is worked by coupling a probe with a single/double cristal that transmits the waves inside the component that needs to be inspected.

What are the disadvantages of phased array testing as compared with conventional UT?
The potential disadvantage of phased array systems is the request for a higher initial investment in terms of instruments and accessories (probes). It is also necessary to invest in training for the operators. However, these costs are frequently offset by their greater flexibility and a reduction in the time required to perform a given inspection.
