Ultrasonic Phased Array
Ultrasonic Phased Array (UTPA) is the most advanced ultrasonic testing and in some cases, can be used in lieu of Radiation testing (RT) while still complying with codes and regulations requirements. Substantial on-site cost savings are achieved from speed but even more so from the opportunity to work side-by-side with all on-site personnel. Using UT eliminates the requirement of establishing worker “exclusion zones” associated with X-ray imaging, eliminating any potential for health physics issues or late-night, off-hour, inspections. Common uses are welding of pipe, pressure vessels, HDPE pipe, refinery and plant work.
