Phased Array (PAUT)

Phased array technology offers all of the benefits and reliability from FAST and QUEST, plus flaw imaging and post processing. PAUT instruments produce accurate, detailed cross-sectional pictures of internal structures at fast inspection speeds.


PAUT technology uses multiple ultrasonic elements and electronic time delays to create beams that can be steered, scanned, swept and focused electronically for fast inspection, full data storage and multiple angle inspections, providing precise measurement with the most reliable results.

Manual and manual encoded weld scanning: encoded scans offer extremely accurate sizing of weld flaws along with cross sectional and planar views of the entire encoded scan area.

Automated ID corrosion mapping: PAUT corrosion mapping systems utilize 64 transducer elements versus conventional corrosion mapping systems which typically have only one. This equates to providing the accuracy of phased array with an acquisition speed 5 times faster than the conventional systems
