Phased array is widely used in several industrial sectors, such as construction or power generation. This method is an advanced NDT method that is used to detect component failures i.e. cracks or flaws and thereby determine component quality. Due to the possibility to control parameters such as beam angle and focal distance, this method is very efficient regarding the defect detection and speed of testing. Apart from detecting flaws in components, phased array can also be used for wall thickness measurements in conjunction with corrosion testing Personnel must be previous qualified in UTL2!
What you will learn
Training is focused on the basic Phased Array knowledge and laws, which help the operator to select suitable probe type, wedge, and setting of Phased Array instrument. Participants also get knowledge about method limitation and information about applicable standards.
Participants will get practical information about method of sensitivity setting, types of inspection (manual/automatic) and basic overview about its performing. They also get information about usage of relevant standards and evaluation of Phased Array indication. Practical part of training is performed at device Sonatest VEO or at your own device.
