ATS Hull Inspections
Applied Technical Services offers a range of services for maritime structures, including hull inspections. Hull inspections help ensure ships maintain safe and effective operation by checking both hull thickness and any hull defects or damage that may be present. If left undiscovered early on, hull defects could potentially further deteriorate and develop into more substantial damage.
Threats to Hull Integrity
Ultrasonic Thickness Testing
To determine if the hull has experienced a loss in thickness, ATS performs Ultrasonic Thickness Testing (UTT). UTT takes advantage of ultrasound technology to emit high frequency sound waves into the test material. Those waves are then reflected back into our UTT probe device, allowing our technicians to determine the wall thickness based on the wave properties.
