Phased Array Ultrasonic Inspection 

Phased Array Inspection is an Advanced Ultrasonic Technique that utilises the latest technology to create targeted beam sets that can be focused upon a specific area for an increased probability of detection. The beam sets are created by utilising constructive and destructive interference where sound waves are sequenced to give the desired beam sets. The angles and type of beam sets are modelled using programmes such as ES Beamtool and CIVA prior to creating the Phased Array setups.

Phased Array can be used across a wide range of sectors to inspection a large variety of components, such as

Girth welds in pipelines, Butt welds in pressure vessels and tanks, Butt welds in small bore, thin walled piping down to 1” (DN25), Fully encoded volumetric Inspection of Forgings and castings, Delamination and other manufacturing defects in carbon composite materials, HTHA, both early detection and sizing, Corrosion mapping of pipework, pressure vessels, tanks, ships hulls

X and Gamma Radiography

X and Gamma Radiography is a method of inspection used widely for detecting volumetric defects. It involves placing a film on one side of an object and the source of radiation on the other. The film will display the amount of radiation received through the object. This is shown as a change in density. Some defects will allow more radiation to pass through, others will restrict the radiation.

X and Gamma Radiography is commonly used on

  • Welds in pipework, tanks, vessels

  • Plates, bars, billets

  • Castings

  • Corrosion monitoring of pipework

Axis NDT are able to provide X and Gamma Radiography at our Premises in Bromborough, Wirral utilising out Radiography enclosure that is 6.5M x 7M with a door opening of 2M x 2.6M.

Axis NDT can also carry out radiography on our client’s site nationwide.
