Phased Array Courses
Phased Array Course Level I – 80 Hours
The Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing Method Operates With A Series Of Small Transducers In A Single Assembly Which Can Be Pulsed Individually. The Beams Emitted From These Individual Transducers Can Thus Be Controlled And Can Be Focused And Swept Along The material without the need for movement of the probe. The pulse timing for each transducer is computer controlled. The result obtained from the reflected pulse is analyzed to determine flaws in the material. The ability to optimize the angle and focal distance of the beam makes PAUT an effective method for determining material quality. PAUT can be done for volumetric applications including weld inspection, corrosion inspection, and material thickness measurement.
Phased Array Characterization & Sizing Course – 40 Hours
This course is designated for Level II PAUT technicians that need advanced skills to succeed with standardized testing. This course is 90% hands-on and specific to success with angle beam examinations of weldments such as the API PA-QUTE or client PA examinations of a fine-grained weldments such as the Shell PA-QUTE or Chevron PAUT exam on carbon steel materials. We will provide samples that mimic these testing environments. Our SMEs have successfully completed these Weld Quality exams and their students have a 100% pass rate.
