Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT Welds) - Level I

Course title

Overview

Our Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT Welds) - Level I course offers comprehensive training in the advanced method of ultrasonic testing known as a phased array. This technique has extensive applications in Industrial Non-destructive Testing, particularly for weld inspections. PAUT utilizes a probe consisting of multiple small ultrasonic transducers, each capable of independent pulsing. By manipulating the timing and progressive time delay of the pulses, a quasi-plane ultrasonic beam can be electronically steered at a specific angle. This beam can be swept through the material or object under examination, and the data from multiple beams are combined to generate a visual image representing a cross-section of the object.

Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT Welds) - Level I

Our Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT Welds) - Level I course offers comprehensive training in the advanced method of ultrasonic testing known as a phased array. This technique has extensive applications in Industrial Non-destructive Testing, particularly for weld inspections. PAUT utilizes a probe consisting of multiple small ultrasonic transducers, each capable of independent pulsing. By manipulating the timing and progressive time delay of the pulses, a quasi-plane ultrasonic beam can be electronically steered at a specific angle. This beam can be swept through the material or object under examination, and the data from multiple beams are combined to generate a visual image representing a cross-section of the object. The controllable nature of the beam is achieved through the use of phased array probes composed of multiple individually pulsed elements.
