NDT Global today announced the introduction of Enhanced Sizing to its ultrasonic (UT) crack inspection service. This new capability removes the existing depth sizing boundary for UT crack inspections, which provide uncertain sizing for depths above 4 mm (0.16 in). This innovation offers high accuracy depth sizing up to 100% wall thickness.
The Enhanced Sizing provides a less conservative and more precise crack assessment for deep cracks. This breakthrough is the first major improvement in crack inspection since the introduction of absolute depth sizing more than five years ago.
“We are delighted to make Enhanced Sizing part of our standard crack inspection service, this underlines our commitment to the advancement of high accuracy UT inspection,” said Mario R. Lemme, CEO NDT Global. “Our philosophy is to continually innovate and provide the most accurate results available in the industry.”
This enhancement is available for all UT crack inspections throughout NDT Global’s entire tool fleet. The advanced algorithms can also be applied to data from previous inspections, to deliver more precise sizing for severe cracks.
