What is Short Range Ultrasonic Testing (SRUT)?

Short Range Ultrasonic Testing (SRUT) utilizes high-frequency sound waves focused on specific areas of materials like welds, castings, and forgings. These waves act like sonic microscopes, bouncing off internal cracks, voids, and inclusions to reveal their precise size, location, and orientation. Unlike broader NDT techniques, SRUT pinpoints even minute flaws with exceptional detail, empowering informed decisions about critical components and ensuring operational excellence through targeted inspections and accurate data analysis.

Benefits of Short Range Ultrasonic Testing (SRUT)

  1. Superior defect detection: Identifies even minute cracks, voids, and inclusions with exceptional detail and accuracy.
  2. Targeted inspections: Focuses on specific areas of concern, minimizing inspection time and cost compared to broader NDT techniques.
  3. Quantitative data analysis: Provides precise measurements of defect size and location, enabling informed repair or replacement decisions.
  4. Versatility: Applicable to various materials and geometries, including welds, castings, forgings, and composite structures.
  5. Safety and non-destructive: Preserves asset integrity and avoids potential damage caused by excavation or disassembly.

Applications of Short Range Ultrasonic Testing (SRUT)

  1. Weld inspection: Assessing the quality and integrity of welds in various structures, including bridges, pressure vessels, and aircraft components.
  2. Casting and forging inspection: Identifying internal defects in critical cast and forged components like gears, turbines, and valves.
  3. Corrosion mapping: Detecting and mapping corrosion within materials like pipelines, storage tanks, and offshore structures.
  4. Material characterization: Understanding the material properties and potential flaws in various components.
  5. Failure analysis: Investigating the cause of component failures to prevent similar occurrences in the future.

Short Range Ultrasonic Testing (SRUT) Standard Codes

  1. ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (Section V): Provides comprehensive guidelines for NDT in pressure vessels and boilers, outlining specific procedures and acceptance criteria for SRUT applications on welds and other critical components.
  2. ASTM E164 – Standard Practice for Ultrasonic Contact Examination of Weldments: Establishes best practices and methodologies for UT inspections of welds, ensuring our SRUT procedures align with accepted industry standards for weld integrity assessments.
