Ultrasonic Testing can be performed on a variety of metals and situations and can detect imperfections near the surface, or deeply in the material using vertical or angle beam probes.

High frequency (usually 1MHz up to 6MHz) sound waves are transmitted into the material; imperfections and flaws reflect the ultrasound.

This method is ideal for internal flat discontinuities, such as cracks or incomplete fusion. UT can also be used to measure material thickness in order to assess corrosion of fatigue damages.

 At Hercules, we use sophisticated equipment and consumables for precise Ultrasonic Testing.
