Webinar Overview

Phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) was developed as a complementary application to conventional ultrasonic testing (UT) where the sound beam is steered and focused at designated areas in the material. Advanced techniques such as Tri-Lateral Phased Array (TriLat), Full Matrix Capture (FMC), and Plane Wave Imaging (PWI) coupled with software imaging have high data fidelity and superior resolution to identify, characterize, and measure defects in the base metal and weld seams of fixed equipment. Phased array is a quantifiable approach for pinpointing mid-wall or internal diameter damage, with the resolution required to differentiate between manufacturing defects and in-service damage such as blistering, cracking, pitting, and weld flaws.

Inspectioneering teams up with Gecko Robotics for our webinar, "Advanced Phased Array Techniques for Defect Identification and Characterization," to discuss the deployment of advanced phased array techniques, along with their benefits, limitations, and stories from the field.
