Guided Wave

Guided wave ultrasonic tests are performed on long sections of tube or pipe, using a single device.

Guided wave devices generate three different gilded wave types, longitudinal, torsional and flexural. By using phased-array technology, these waves can be focused and are used to analyze circumferential responses to find indications. These tests can be performed on in-service pipes operating at up to and amazing 240 degrees Celsius.
