"Novel Techniques for Robot-Enabled Advanced Ultrasonic Testing (AUT) Inspections" Webinar Recording

1 Presentation 0 Sections

Traditional advanced ultrasonic testing (AUT) has shown to be an excellent tool to discriminate corrosion; however, its use has been limited to only pre-identified areas of concern due to speed and cost limitations. Recent advances in data processing using phased-array probes allow for much faster inspection. The ability to cover assets >5X faster is changing how plant operators perceive this technique. Take a deep dive with Chase David as he goes over the technology and robotics being pioneered to thoroughly inspect ferritic assets like storage tanks and piping, including a comparison of traditional AUT and rapid AUT (R-AUT).

In this webinar, participants will:

  • Explore the history and background of ultrasonic technology used in inspections
  • Learn different types of technology for complete coverage UT inspections
  • Understand the advantages and disadvantages to incorporate robotic technology into reliability and maintenance plans
  • Discuss real-world examples and applications of R-AUT
