Automated Ultrasonic Testing (AUT)
STANLEY Inspection offers a range of Automated Ultrasonic Testing (AUT) services including Time of Flight Diffraction (ToFD), Phased Array (PA), corrosion mapping, and complete weld inspection. AUT of welds is accomplished by the mechanization of a portable scanner populated with ultrasonic probes and a sophisticated data acquisition system. AUT is widely recognized as the most accurate method of detecting and sizing weld flaws in high-production environments.
Ultrasonic inspection of pipeline girth welds using the PipeWIZARD® system offers fast scanning speed, reduced weld-to-weld inspection times, operational flexibility, low operating costs, and extremely high reliability. Zonal pulse echo, coupled with ToFD and sectorial scanning delivers the ability to efficiently and reliably detect the presence of both fabrication and service-induced defects while providing the data necessary for accurate assessment of their size.
STANLEY Inspection provides AUT weld inspection services using production-proven hardware and certified operators.
