Ultrasonic Inspection & Testing of Welds

JANX has a complete range of tools and techniques to match each inspection application ranging from basic thickness measurements to fully automated inspections. Ultrasonic testing is a widely used non-destructive testing method that may be used for dimensional measurements, thickness, material characterization, flaw detection and more.

Ultrasonic inspection may be utilized at any stage of an asset’s lifecycle, ranging from inspection to plates, forging, castings, and welded components, to in-service corrosion monitoring. JANX’s qualified operators interpret ultrasonic readings to applicable codes and standards such as API, ASME, and AWS while complying with required customer specifications.

JANX regularly provides high-production testing of welds services on major pipeline construction projects utilizing Automated Ultrasonic Testing with the RTD Rotoscan system.

Available ultrasonic testing equipment includes:

  • Straight Beam Ultrasonic Instruments with and without A-Scan display – GE, Olympus, Danatronics, others
  • Manual Shear Wave Instruments (single channel) – Olympus, Sonatest
  • Handheld Phased Array Instruments, 10 to 64 element phased array transducers – GE, Olympus, and Sonatest
  • Automated Internal Corrosion Mapping Scanner (C-Scan) – AUT Solutions, ScanTech
  • Semi-Automated B–Scan for inspection of pipe fittings and other non-standard geometries – AUT Solutions
  • Semi-Automated Phased Array Scanner, for inspection of girth welds and long seams – AUT Solutions, Olympus, JIREH
  • Automatic Weld Inspection – Applus RTD Rotoscan System

JANX utilizes a wide range of ultrasonic techniques including:
