SEAL AVIATION ULTRASOUND NDT SERVICES
Ultrasound testing (UT) is a nondestructive testing method that uses high frequency sound waves to detect inconsistencies in different materials. Using ultrasonic sound frequencies that can’t be heard by the human ear is the basis of ultrasound testing. Ultrasonic Non-destructive testing (UT) measures sound waves as they bounce off different materials. In most common UT applications, very short ultrasonic pulse-waves with center frequencies ranging from 5-15 MHz are transmitted into materials to detect internal flaws or to characterize materials. Any change in a material consistency will change the rate at which the sound bounces back. By measuring this echo, many potential defects can come to light.
