When it comes to pressurized contents, you want to be absolutely certain that the welds in the equipment holding it are strong. The results of equipment failure would be catastrophic, putting your productivity, your facility, and your personnel at risk. And that is just a risk that we are not willing to take.
At CODE Steel, we have the specialized training necessary to perform UT, ultrasonic test, inspections. With these regular inspections, we make sure that weaknesses in your machinery are quickly identified in the early stages so that repairs can be made and catastrophe can be avoided.
How do Ultrasonic Inspections Work?
Ultrasonic sound waves cannot be heard by the human ear, and these are the waves used in UT inspections. During a UT inspection, a gel is placed over the equipment and ultrasonic sound waves are passed through it. The way these waves are transmitted back to the transducer creates a clear picture of the machinery and any weaknesses in the welds or the metal itself.
UT inspections are a good way to identify:
- Thinning metal
- Weakened welds
- Air pockets
The pressurized fluids held in tanks and pipes are corrosive by nature. It is only a matter of time before the metal or the welds in it become weakened, no matter how well-made it is. With the regular UT inspections that we offer at CODE steel, we can monitor your equipment as it undergoes the effects of the demands placed on it. This way, you can know from the inside out how strong the equipment you trust really is. When repairs need to be made, you will know it before any damage is done.
When CODE Steel performs regular UT inspections, you have the peace of mind of knowing that we work hard to make sure that you can keep working hard.
