Manual Ultrasonic Testing Field Professionals

Manual Ultrasonic Testing (MUT) is a NDT method using short-wavelength ultrasonic beams to determine thickness, inspect for laminations and detect discontinuities in steel, other metals and alloys.

Extremely effective for inspecting and detecting corrosion or damage to components, MUT can also be used to test welding and is especially good at locating planar defects.

A respected company in MUT, IACS use PCN level 2 qualified personnel for all testing. Using a handheld probe and lightweight system, this service can be conducted by a single operative in a variety of environments, providing swift and accurate results.

Ultrasonic inspection has proved extremely valuable for the steel fabrication, renewable energy, aerospace, power generation, oil and gas industries and transport sectors.
