Innsbrook, VA Ultrasonics
Using high frequency sound energy to conduct examinations and make measurements. Ultrasonic inspection can be used for flaw detection/evaluation, dimensional measurements, material characterization. The sound energy is introduced and propagates through the material in the form of waves. When there is a discontinuity or crack in the wave path, part of the energy will be reflected. back from the flaw surface. The reflected wave signal is transformed into an electrical signal by the transducer and is displayed on a screen. Advanced Ultrasonics takes many on the job hours and classroom training to become a skilled technician in Ultrasonics. Integrity Testlabs has technicians to cover all your Ultrasonic (UT) needs.
