Automated Ultrasonic Testing (AUT)

AUTOMATED ULTRASONIC TESTING (AUT)


At present, Automatic Ultrasonic Testing (AUT) has become the NDE industry standard examination method for girth weld inspection. UT Quality Arabia Co. Ltd. ensures that you benefit from AUT system’s superior analysis and computerized data management system. We undertake the most recent technologies in bringing you the AUT’s advantages of greater safety, faster cycle time and accurate detection.

By embracing the latest technologies, Automated Ultrasonic Testing (AUT) is achieving the highest ever probability of detection and sizing accuracies of any NDT Technique, at a level of speed and efficiency never seen before

Benefits:

  • Reduced repair rates
  • Reduced inspection cycle time
  • Increased accuracy
  • Increased quality

The AUT system takes full advantage of today’s leading edge technologies:

  • Phased array Ultrasound
  • Computing power
  • Global Positioning
  • Data Management

Efficiencies – Embrace Technology
AUT system are specifically designed with high speed and efficiency in mind. Each aspect of the process streamlined to provide the highest level of automation and control for quality and production purposes like.

Key efficiencies: Instant results ensures that precise information regarding welding problems are immediately communicated to the welding crew to minimize costly repairs.
Ability for the adoption of ECA “Fitness for Purpose” criteria further greatly reduces repair rates. An analysis is undertaken to determine actual allowable flaw sizes for the specific pipeline, based on fracture mechanics studies. AUT’s superior sizing ability is the key to this opportunity in reducing repairs and increasing the integrity of the welded joints.
