AUT – Automated Ultrasonic Inspection
At Specialized NDE we can incorporate a variety of methods to provide you with AUT solutions, whether it's automated inspection of pipeline girth welds or corrosion mapping of a pressure vessel shell, we have what you need for your inspection solution. AUT can incorporate PAUT and ToFD techniques in to the inspection.
ToFD – Time of Flight Diffraction
ToFD was first developed in the late 1970’s for crack sizing but is also an excellent tool for the inspection of welds, in particular heavy welds. It is fully accepted in the ASME code for the inspection of boiler and pressure vessel welds in lieu of X-Ray. It also a great tool for the detection and sizing of cracks such as ERW welds in pipeline long seams.
PAUT – Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing
Specialized NDE are leaders in PAUT testing and have many years of experience when it comes to this method of testing. This Ultrasonic inspection method allows us to acquire data from inspections and archive and analyze for future reference. It is fully ASME code compliant and is used extensively for the inspection of boiler and pressure vessel welds as well as pipeline welds and process piping welds.
