Applied Technical Services offers various ultrasonic pipe testing to detect defects in a wide range of piping components and materials.  Ultrasonic inspection uses sound reflections in order to determine pipe thickness and to locate defects in welds and materials. ATS performs ultrasonic pipe testing using the latest in ultrasonic technology to ensure accurate and dependable results.

Ultrasonic pipe testing is effective for detecting flaws in piping welds used in many different industries including oil and gas, power generation, pulp and paper, and pharmaceuticals.  ATS’ NDT technicians use this method to find a variety of defects including cracks, corrosion, lack of fusion, lack of penetration, inclusions, and other similar defects that can affect structural integrity. Test results are dependent on the flaw type, size and material being analyzed; however, it is a method that is distinctly repeatable and reliable.  In addition, ultrasonic testing is a portable test that allows for inspecting irregular and large parts, structures and/or components.
