What to Expect From Ultrasonic Inspection
Ultrasonic testing is commonly integrated with preventive maintenance strategies. The method of inspection is widely employed across industries to evaluate the properties of material, components and structures for quality, anomalies or potential flaws without damaging the part. The aircraft industry uses it to look for wear and internal anomalies in the airplane. The railroad industry uses it to examine rails for signs of damage. In industrial manufacturing, components such as bearings, pumps, compressors, pipes and tubes can be inspected for signs of wear-and-tear.
