PHASED ARRAY INSPECTION IS NOW AVAILABLE IN OUR NDT SHOP
Main advantages of using phased array method are: less movement, faster inspection, better reliability, extended inspection interval etc.
For further details please contact
Eddy current inspection: Finding surface and subsurface defects (cracks, pits, and corrosion), changes in the heat treatment, conductivity and sorting materials.
The method’s advantages: Can inspect through coating, can inspect in multi layer structures, portable, fast, and can check cracks which cannot find by visual and penetrant method.
X-Ray inspection: Detection of internal, multi layer defects (cracks, corrosion, inclusions, voids, porosity), thickness variations and detecting water in the honeycomb structure before repair.
The methods advantages: Portable, a permanent record of the inspection film, useful on a wide variety of materials, high sensitivity, eliminates disassembly requirements for airplane structure.
Magnetic particle inspection: Finding surface and near surface discontinuities (cracks, corrosion, laps, voids, non-metallic inclusions) in ferromagnetic materials.
The methods advantages: Reliable fast method of testing suitable components, easy to use, and simple in principle.
Penetrant inspection: Finding surface or opened to the surface discontinuities such as crack, folds, laps cold shots and porosity.
The methods advantages: Relatively cheap and simple to use, easy to develop to difficult surfaces, fluorescent penetrants (we use only this) have high sensitivity.
Ultrasonic inspection: Used for detecting surface and subsurface discontinuities in most metal structure, fasteners etc. and detecting delaminating and disbonding on composite parts.
The methods advantages: Excellent penetration, portable, very accurate, highly sensitive, relatively easy to use, fast, reliable, requires access to only one side, immediate result.
