Ultrasonic Testing (UT) utilizes a high frequency, high energy cone of sound from a probe to “scan” the interior of a component for volumetric flaws or discontinuities. The sound wave travels within the component and reflects off any internal features, including the walls of the component and any defects within it. An echo that is reflected earlier on the CRT screen is a sign of a discontinuity at that location. By moving the probe in a methodical manner across the surface of the component, an operator can not only measure the thickness of the component (Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge Measurement), but also detect any defects within it. UT is often deployed to detect internal discontinuities in welded plate and pipes on site, and for measuring wall thicknesses of in-service pipes, boilers and pressure vessels
POSITIVE MATERIAL IDENTIFICATION
Optical Emission Spectroscopy, or OES, is a well trusted and widely used analytical technique used to determine the elemental composition of a broad range of metals, tubes, bolts, rods, wires, plates and many more.
Portable x-ray fluorescence—also known as PXRF—is a portable form of elemental analysis instruments based on x-ray fluorescence technology. Portable x-ray fluorescence works just like a bench-top EDXRF instrument, but you can take it anywhere and conduct analysis outdoors, on the assembly line, in the mine, or just about anywhere else you can imagine
