Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing
Phased Array techniques utilize multiple small ultrasonic elements arrayed in a single housing, each of which can be pulsed individually. Through electronic control of the element pulse timing, Phased Array UT technicians can generate tightly focused high-resolution sound beams that are customizable to any application. The digitization of these sound waves allows for the recording and archiving of data, as well as post-inspection analysis.
Now recognized by most codes, phased array is leading the industry with significant advantages over conventional scanning and radiography techniques. These applications are unlimited in any industrial field.
Time Of Flight Diffraction (TOFD)
The TOFD (Time of Flight Diffraction) technique uses two probes in a pitch-catch configuration. A transmitting probe directs or 'pitches' sound into the material, while a receiving probe 'catches' the transmitted sound waves. Any discontinuities in the material, from manufacturing flaws such as plate laminations or lack of fusion in welds to service-related cracking are easily detected.
The remarkable accuracy and high Probability of Detection that is the hallmark of TOFD has made it recognized worldwide as a proven and reliable inspection tool. ITS Technicians can deploy both Phased Array and TOFD techniques concurrently, providing you with the confidence of knowing the true condition of your assets.
