Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (P.A.U.T)

Phased array ultrasonic testing uses multiple elements to steer, focus and scan beams with a single transducer assembly. Beam steering, commonly referred to sectorial scanning, can be used for mapping components at appropriate angles. This can greatly simplify the inspection of components with complex geometry. The ability to test welds with multiple angles from a single probe greatly increases the probability of detection of anomalies.

Technique capability:

  • Ferrous & non ferrous materials can be inspected.
  • Inspection in limited access area, where there is limited access for raster scanning.
  • Inspection speed – In a linear scanning whole weld area will be inspected, which tremendously reduces the inspection time.
  • High probability of defect detection.
