4 Things to Look for In an Ultrasonic Flaw Detector

Ultrasonic flaw detectors are sensors that use ultrasonic waves to detect flaws. These devices are used across all industries, ranging from transport, rail, aviation, infrastructure projects, manufacturing, turbines, and the oil & gas industry. These flaw detectors are popular as they apply NDT or non-destructive techniques using ultrasonic waves. Using these does not harm the materials…

How Do Ultrasonic Transducers Work?

Ultrasounds are the sound waves that vibrate above the human hearing range. These have shorter wavelengths that start from 20 kHz onwards. Most of the ultrasonic transducers use ultrasound wavelength frequencies that start from 20 kHz.   What is Frequency?  Frequency is the number of waves or signals that can appear in a fixed period. Hertz…

What is an Ultrasonic Probe? Why is it Important?

Ultrasonic testing is a highly effective non-destructive testing application (NDT). It uses high-frequency ultrasonic sound waves for various purposes that include flaw detection, thickness gauging among several others. These high-frequency sound waves are generated by small ultrasonic probes also known as ultrasonic transducers. These probes are the starting and an essential part of any ultrasonic testing device…

9 Reasons Why You Should Use Portable Ultrasonic Flaw Detectors

Portable ultrasonic flaw detectors are used increasingly across all industries, whether they be manufacturing, infrastructure projects, oil, and gas industry, or transport and aviation. These devices apply non-destructive ultrasonic waves to detect flaws. The flaws if not detected beforehand can result in major damages whether financial, environmental, or loss of life and limb. Flaw detectors are…

7 Ways to Make the Best Uses of Ultrasonic Flaw Detectors

There are several uses of ultrasonic flaw detectors in a wide range of industrial applications. Flaw detectors use non-destructive techniques (NDT) that employ ultrasonic waves for the purpose. The devices generate ultrasonic waves which pass through the test subject and reflect after striking the flaws and generate clear echo patterns. These patterns are recorded, displayed, and interpreted.…

ultrasonic thickness gauge

Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge Price List

The ultrasonic thickness gauge is a portable device for measurement by utilising ultrasonic waves. The ultrasonic waves emitted by the gauge transmit through the measured object from one end to the other, after reaching and striking the material interface, the ultrasonic waves bounce back to the gauge. By accurately measuring the time taken by ultrasonic waves to…

Types of Ultrasonic Testing

Ultrasonic Testing (UT) means the application of a short and high-frequency ultrasonic pulse to detect flaws in an object or material. There are several non-destructive examination (NDE) ultrasonic techniques. The testing is done by emitting the waves into the material tested. By measuring the volume of these waves returning, the internal flaws and properties of…

Ultrasonic Testing and its Working

What Is Ultrasonic Testing? Ultrasonic testing or in short UT refers to a variety of non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques that use ultrasonic waves to pass through a substance or object. Ultrasonic waves are high-frequency waves that are passed through different substances to find flaws or detecting variations in them. Ultrasonic testing applications can utilize frequencies…

What are the types of Ultrasonic Transducers?

Ultrasound is the sound above the human hearing range having shorter wavelengths. Though ultrasound starts at 20 KHz and above most ultrasonic transducers start from 200 KHz. The ultrasonic transducers are sensors that work by using ultrasonic sound waves. These transducers convert the electrical signals to ultrasonic waves or vibrations which are focused on the intended object.…

What Are The Different Types Of NDT Methods?

There are more than one NDT methods. Non-destructive testing or NDT is an analysis and testing-based technique that is used by industry for evaluating the properties of a component, structure, material, or system for welding defects or characteristic differences and discontinuities without causing any damage to its original part. NDT is also called Non-destructive Inspection…
