Ultrasonic Testing

Generally, Ultrasonic Testing is used for two purposes: measuring the thickness or detecting internal discontinuïties in a material or construction. Using this inspection method, high-frequency sound pulses are emitted through the material, and subsequently, the reflections of these pulses indicate the thickness or internal discontinuïty. The amount of sound that is reflected is used to determine the size of the discontinuïty and is compared with a test block with artificial defects. On the basis of this comparison, the examined part will be evaluated according to the specified code or standard.
