Level 2

Phased Array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) is an advanced method of ultrasonic testing.  The Phased Array method can reveal defects embedded in the material that cannot be easily resolved with conventional ultrasonic testing.

The ultrasonic beam is swept like a search-light through the object being examined. The data from multiple beams are then put together to make a visual image showing a slice through the object.

Phased Array offers a more exact form of ultrasonic testing and could be used as a more cost efficient method than Radiography.
