Technician conducting UT pipe testing

UT Pipe Testing

Applied Technical Services provides UT pipe testing services to help clients assess the condition of their piping. Ultrasonic testing (UT) is a nondestructive inspection method for detecting flaws in materials and components. UT uses high-frequency sound waves to collect information about a pipe or other component’s surface qualities, such as wall thickness or corrosion levels. ATS offers pipe testing in accordance with the following standards:
Ultrasonic testing provides valuable information about piping conditions without impacting the equipment’s integrity. ATS uses UT to help clients with all their piping system needs.
Piping System Experts

Our certified, licensed, and skillfully trained piping experts conduct thorough condition assessments for piping systems and related equipment. We can examine all aspects of system health, including equipment such as tanks, pressure vessels, and other associated components. Ultrasonic testing is a portable inspection method that generates highly reliable and repeatable results. We can use UT on large and irregularly shaped structures, parts, and components. The data that our licensed Professional Engineers and certified API inspectors collect helps proprietors to plan shutdowns, budget for any repairs, and schedule their future inspections. ATS is a third-party tank and pipe consulting company with the necessary experience and equipment to handle every client’s fixed equipment needs.

Routine Piping Inspections
Consistent inspections help to prevent major failures in piping systems, protecting personnel and the proximate environment. Infrequent inspections can allow significant flaws to develop in piping systems, such as corrosion, cracking, erosion, fractures, delamination, and other defects. Corrosion is a primary source of failure in fixed equipment, and its associated risks increase over time.
ATS offers routine piping inspection programs to combat system failure. Our experts identify potential issues such as damaged mechanisms and corrosion early, keeping fixed equipment in proper working order. We assess every aspect of asset health, from pipe weld quality to standard compliance. Our experienced engineers calculate comprehensive repair plans for repair contractors, giving them a scope of necessary work before they conduct repairs. Applied Technical Services boosts our inspection value through our practical condition assessments, helping clients to minimize scheduled and unscheduled downtime and prioritize their assets’ needs.
