Non-Destructive Testing Services in Franklin Farm, VA
C-scan, Shearwave and Phased Array
Automated Corrosion Mapping uses C-scan to do corrosion maps to find flaws on the shells of equipment and piping. AUT can produce very detailed reports for clients to visually see where the corrosion is happening. Shearwave uses high frequency sound waves to identify flaws in the material. Sensitive to surface and subsurface discontinuities it’s a superior inspection tool wen compared to other NDT processes. Phased Array is known for its capabilities to send multiple singles into material to produce highly repeatable results and detailed and accurate cross sections of components. This makes Phased Array a needed to tool to inspect complex shaped parts.
