Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT)

Phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) stands as a reliable and efficient solution for detecting and detailing flaws, offering multi-view inspections simultaneously. Utilizing multiple ultrasonic elements triggered in rapid sequence, PAUT technology produces beams that are electronically directed, adjusted, and focused. This technology allows for inspections over multiple angles at once, resulting in both cost savings and detailed, recordable data for subsequent analysis and re-inspections. PAUT proves versatile, finding use in areas such as NDT welding inspections, mapping of corrosion under insulation (CUI) mapping, and intricate component assessments. Thanks to precise scan planning and electronic beam adjustments, PAUT boosts flaw detection rates while ensuring swift inspection timelines.

Full Matrix Capture (FMC) Technique

Our Full Matrix Capture (FMC) approach ensures comprehensive data acquisition by capturing all potential transmit/receive combinations. When FMC data is integrated with state-of-the-art imaging algorithms, such as the Total Focusing Method (TFM), it facilitates the inspection of areas with optimal wave focus throughout the entire image. These cutting-edge methods empower Aegeus experts to deliver superior defect identification, imaging precision, characterization, and size estimation, even in the most challenging applications.

Aegeus offers PAUT services suitable for an expansive variety of equipment, catering to numerous industries seeking asset and pipeline integrity checks, such as:

Oil & Gas Exploration (Upstream)
Resource Transit (Midstream)
Processing (Downstream)
Pipeline Transportation
New Infrastructure Projects
Power Sectors
Aerospace Field
Nuclear Facilities
Offshore Platforms
Maintenance Operations
