Ultrasonic Testing (UT) is routinely performed throughout the industry as a way to test material without damaging it. Fabrication shops, along with the power generation, petrochemical, and structural steel industries, all use UT for the inspection of welds. Carbon steel welds are inspected on a daily basis without any issues; however, nickel alloy welds present special problems when trying to inspect them with UT. Even though various codes and standards allow for ultasonic testing of nickel alloy welds, they do not address the difficulties encountered when trying to perform these inspections.

This white paper discusses some of the difficulties encountered when performing UT on nickel alloy welds and, in particular, stainless-steel welds, and presents an effective alternative utilizing Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT).
