Automated Ultrasonic Testing (AUT) is a multi-technology Non-Destructive Testing process, widely recognised as the most accurate method of detecting and sizing weld flaws in a high-production environment.
Deploying driver software, the system uses a mechanised portable scanner with Phased Array and ultrasonic probes to detect discontinuities and feed back to a sophisticated data acquisition system.
Fully DNV approved, IACS use top-of-the-range multi-channel Phased Array and Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) systems from Design Technologies UK to conduct advanced, accurate AUT.
Ideal for pipeline girth weld scanning, IACS' AUT inspections are highly effective for monitoring discontinuities over successive inspection intervals, calculating growth rates of discontinuities, and targeting repair or replacement activities.
