Ultrasonic Thickness Inspection

NATA Accredited Ultrasonic Thickness and Corrosion Mapping

Ultrasonic thickness testing uses high frequency sound to measure a material thickness with the use of specialist equipment and probes. Ultrasonic thickness inspection works by pulsing sound into the test part and “listening” for the echo response. The thickness is determined using the time taken for the sound to travel through the part as well as the known velocity of sound in the inspection material. QMS technicians are able to perform thickness testing on both localised areas, i.e. pipe elbows or blends or over broad regions to ascertain the material profile. Primary applications:

  • Determination of blend depth after corrosion removal.
  • Detection of corrosion
  • Determination of plate thickness following machining.
  • Determine the extent of corrosion/erosion of wall thickness.
