Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing

Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) is a type of NDT testing in which advanced systems use ultrasound to volumetrically test materials for defects, weaknesses, cracks, or other flaws.

PAUT enables a fast, qualitative inspection of new construction and in-service components without losing productive time clearing work areas of personnel or awaiting radiographic test results.

Building a strong reputation for accuracy and quality, IACS has been providing Phased Array services to some of the industry’s largest companies for over 15 years.

The speed, accuracy, and non-invasiveness of PAUT systems benefit a variety of industrial processes including inspection of welds, wall thickness measurements, corrosion testing, flaw detection, and rolling stock inspection.

Magnetic Particle Inspection

Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) is a very popular Non-Destructive Testing process for detecting surface or sub-surface (up to 3mm deep) discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials.

MPI is used to inspect a variety of product forms including castings, forgings, and weldments. A relatively quick and cost-effective method of inspection, it can be conducted by one operative with lightweight equipment in most environments.

IACS uses PCN level 2 qualified personnel to undertake Magnetic Particle Inspection, with a high level of expertise built over many years providing this service to a wide range of clients worldwide.

Examples of industries that can benefit from using MPI to determine component fitness include structural steel, automotive, petrochemical, power generation, and aerospace industries. MPI is also used in underwater testing and inspection of items such as structures and submerged pipelines.
