Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT)

Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing offer technology that allows multiple ultrasonic waves to be generated instantly through a specialized multi element probe. The flexibility of the tool allows the user to manipulate the angle, focal distance and focal spot of the beam offering multiple applications and versatility of detection. The increased capabilities offered by the variable angle beam allow us to accurately locate and size defects in a short amount of time while the software provides recorded data.

Benefits of PAUT are:

  • Multiple angle inspection with a single probe and high-speed scanning capability with accurate data sizing
  • Software control of beam, focal distance and spot size
  • Greater detection of cracks, especially in off angle presentations and areas of difficult geometry
  • Accepted by code in lieu of radiography per ASME
  • All data is electronically recorded and available for immediate review by the client or offsite personnel such as a Level III or owner/user subject matter expert
  • Excellent technology for finding cracks and sizing data for Fitness for Service calculations
