Phased Array Ultrasonic Examination

Failure of small bore piping welds is a recurring problem at nuclear plants, one that causes unscheduled plant shutdowns and thus an economic impact on utilities. To Detect degradation of small bore piping welds, such as socket welds prior to degradation becoming an operational issue, our advanced phased array ultrasonic (UT) examination technique enables operators to characterize potential flaws, allowing the plant to determine which indications are relevant and make a repair accordingly securing potential license renewal and improving plant performance. Our innovative solution reduces cost, critical path and dose. Emergent issues are resolved quickly, task safety and efficiency are increased.
