Phased Array

Phased Array is a very advanced form of ultrasonic testingCause & Effect: Corrosion in Piping. Read more ... ». Phased Array is typically used to detect discontinuities located in the subsurface otherwise undetectable by conventional ultrasonic inspection techniques. Phased Array also uses a variety of transducers5 Cool, Practical Uses for Phased Array Antennas and Transducers. Read more ... » to ensure a comprehensive inspection of the test piece. This test method allows for not only a quicker inspection time, but also ensures all discontinuities are detected regardless of their orientation. The use of multiple transducers allows for the recording of the data which is turned into a visual image. Phased Array is applied for Time of Flight Diffraction as well as weld inspection. Not only can Phased Array detect and locate discontinuities, but it can do so on complex structures and geometries.
