Ultrasonic Testing is for a few applications the only technology providing answers while it is in general complementing our tool kit.
The technology is based on the principle of acoustic wave propagation. By transducer emitted soundwaves reflected from objects of different density. Their return signals enable a specialized analyst to make conclusions about the quantity and quality of the objects and structures. It is possible to perform localized testing as well as area analysis.
Ultrasonic testing is not only but in particular; useful for:
· Delamination, voids, leaks of filling and other defects
· Thickness and thickness variation, e.g. for slabs or tunnel linings up to 1000mm
· Objects and inclusions
· Grouting defects in Drossbachs and tendon ducts
