Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT)
Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) is an advanced application of ultrasonic testing technology. It can be used for weld inspections, crack and flaw detections, thickness measurements and corrosion inspections. Because of the detailed visualization of the defect size, shape, depth and orientation, Phased Array can often be used instead of Radiographic Testing. Since it does not use ionizing radiation, there is no need to create a safety zone which usually means interrupting production.
