Dry Dock Survey – Stepping Out of the Water
Ultrasonic Thickness Testing
ATS offers thickness testing as part of our dry dock survey. Vessels that fall victim to corrosion can suffer material loss in metallic components, such as the hull. To assess these components for material loss, our NDT experts perform ultrasonic thickness testing (UTT). UTT uses ultrasound technology to send high-frequency sound waves directly into the test material through a probe. These waves then reflect back to the probe. Our technicians analyze the properties of these returning signal to determine the precise thickness of the material.
