Guided-wave Ultrasonic Testing
When you need a preliminary scan of buried piping, guided wave ultrasonic testing cannot be beat.
Guided Wave Ultrasonic Testing (GWUT)
Rapidly surveying long lengths of pipe or plate from a single test location is what guided wave ultrasonic testing, or long range ultrasonic testing (LRUT), is made for. Another closely related benefit of this ultrasonic technique is the ability to detect corrosion wall loss and cracks in long lengths of aboveground, buried, or insulated pipe. LRUT technicians identify the locations and sizes of these damage mechanisms by analyzing the data with Versa’s user-friendly software.
Another potential application for guided wave ultrasonic testing is inspecting and monitoring areas that are difficult to access, like high elevations, behind walls, or other inaccessible areas of your facility. Long range ultrasonic testing (LRUT) ultimately saves time and money associated with scaffolding, insulation removal, excavation, and inspecting materials that may prove clean upon a screening with LRUT.
