(PA) is an advanced method of Ultrasonic Testing that has applications in Medical Imaging and Industrial Non-Destructive Testing. Common applications are to non-invasively examine the heart or to find flaws in manufactured materials such as welds.
What we do
Ultrasonic Phased Arrays use a multiple element probe, whereby the output pulse from each element is time delayed in such a way, as to produce constructive interference at a specific angle and a specific depth. These time delays can be incremented over a range of pre-defined angles to sweep the beam inside the area of inspection. Due to the possibility to control parameters, such as beam angle and focal distance; this method is very efficient regarding the defect detection and speed of testing. Apart from detecting discontinuities in welds and components, Phased Arrays can also be used for, Thickness Measurements and Corrosion Inspection
Our Technicians design and developed their own scanners to ensure that the inspections cover all the requirement and for accurate repeatability of defect monitoring.
