Applied Technical Services offers ship hull inspection services to ensure ships can maintain safe and effective operation while meeting applicable standards. We use proven nondestructive testing methods to assess both ship hull thickness and any hull defects or damage that may be present. Hull damage could potentially grow into a larger safety hazard for both the personnel and cargo on board if left unchecked.
Common Ship Hull Defects
Ultrasonic Thickness Testing
To verify if hull thickness has been affected by corrosion, our NDT experts can perform ultrasonic thickness testing (UTT) as part of the ship hull inspection. UTT sends soundwaves directly into the test material and interprets the properties of the reflecting wave to report a thickness reading.
Our Inspection Method
ATS and Ship Hull Inspection
Applied Technical Services performs nondestructive testing according to proven scientific and technical principles. All our technicians are certified to Levels I, II, or III in accordance with SNT-TC-1A of the American Society of Nondestructive Testing (ASNT). Having your ship hull inspected can prevent costly emergency dry-docking, maintain the safety of personnel and cargo, and better assess the scope and scheduling of repair. As part of our high standard for quality, we make sure to integrate our inspections with your operation and schedule. If you need a ship hull inspection, contact us today!
