Staying Safe with UT Inspections

MFE-Enterprises_HSR_Crawler, A compact robotic device with two red-rimmed wheels, black and silver components, yellow wires, and a rectangular black box on top. The device appears to be designed for mobility and mechanical tasks, for industrial or research purposes.Pressurized contents are serious business.  They are usually hazardous to both humans and the environment, so you have got to have powerful machinery to keep these gasses and liquids contained.  An equipment failure would be catastrophic, so we suggest that you just avoid having one.  CODE Steel performs UT inspections to make certain that everyone is safe and your equipment is in good shape.

UT, or Ultrasonic test, inspections allow us to look at every weld in your machinery and identify any corrosion or possible weaknesses.  Because it is a nondestructive test, UT inspections do not cause any damage or weakness during testing.

The UT inspection involves placing a gel on each weld and sending a sound wave through the metal.  The sound waves bounce back to a diagnostic machine, which is then able to identify any compromised areas.  UT inspections can accurately detect weaknesses such as:

  • Broken Seals
  • Wear Points
  • Corrosion
  • Air Pockets
  • Thinning Metal
  • Imperfections

You know that the machinery you use was well made, but you also know that, over time, the very nature of the work you do with this equipment can start to break it down.  When CODE Steel identifies any possible problems, we can fix them before they cause any kind of damage or slow-down.  Replacement is very expensive, especially when routine inspections could have resulted in simple repairs.

Keeping your staff safe is our top priority, and we do that by keeping your machinery strong.  We know that you do your job well, and so do we.  Our UT inspections specialists know that a job well done means that you save time, money and worry.  We feel good about that.
