What are the types of NDT?
Many different NDT methods are available in the industry, each of them having its own advantages and limitations, but six of them are most frequently used: ultrasonic testing (UT), radiographic testing (RT), electromagnetic testing (ET), magnetic particle testing (MT), liquid penetrant testing (PT) and visual testing (VT). Other techniques include acoustic emission testing (AE), guided wave testing (GW), laser testing methods (LM), acoustic resonance testing (ART), leak testing (LT), magnetic flux leakage (MFL), vibration analysis (VA), and infrared testing (IR).

What is ultrasonic testing?
Ultrasonic (UT) inspection is a method of characterizing the thickness or internal structure of a piece using high-frequency sound waves. The frequencies used for ultrasonic testing are many times higher than the limit of human hearing, most commonly in the range from 500 kHz to 20 MHz. It is utilized in a comparative mode, where a real component is compared to a calibration/test piece where several types of defects have been included.

What materials can be tested with ultrasonic testing?
In industrial applications, the majority of materials can be inspected with UT including plastics, composites, and ceramics. The only materials that are not suitable for ultrasonic testing with conventional equipment are wood and paper products.

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 PA UT or PAUT mean?
Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) is an advanced non-destructive examination technique that utilizes a set of ultrasonic testing (UT) probes made up of numerous small elements, each of which is pulsed individually with computer-calculated timing.

Why use PAUT techologies?
Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) can be used to inspect more complex geometries that are difficult and much slower to inspect with single probes. PAUT can be used to inspect almost any material where traditional UT methods have been utilized and are often used for weld inspections and crack detection. The advantages of phased array technology over traditional UT derive from its ability to use multiple elements for steering, focusing, and scanning beams with a single transducer assembly. Beam steering generally referred to as sector scanning, may be used for mapping components at suitable angles. This will greatly simplify the inspection of complex geometry components.
