FAQ

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 does TOFD mean?
Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) is a reliable method of nondestructive ultrasonic testing (UT) used to look for flaws in welds. TOFD uses the time of flight of an ultrasonic pulse to find the location of a reflector. It can also be used for weld overlays and the heat-affected zones of other components as well such as piping, pressure vessels, clad material, storage tanks, and structural steel.

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 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.
