Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement (UTM) is a non-destructive testing technique used to determine the thickness of a material by using high-frequency sound waves. It is commonly used in industrial applications to assess the condition of pipes, tanks, pressure vessels, and other components that are subject to corrosion or erosion.
In UTM, an ultrasonic transducer is placed on one side of the material, and a pulse of high-frequency sound waves is sent through the material to the other side. The sound waves travel through the material and are reflected back to the transducer, which measures the time taken for the waves to return.
AlfaTest’s qualified specialists perform Ultrasonic Thickness Measurements to ensure the vessel’s global and local strength is maintained. This involves examining the internal condition and remaining thickness of the vessel to identify any areas of concern. AlfaTest’s experts have significant experience in this field and can provide close-up requirements for all types of vessels.
To tackle the most challenging testing scenarios, AlfaTest utilizes its experience and advanced UT measuring instruments to offer a reliable and cost-effective solution. Our certification has been granted by six IACS classification societies, including LR, DNV, BV, RINA, ABS, and RMRS.
IACS stands for International Association of Classification Societies. The primary purpose of IACS is to promote maritime safety and secure shipping through the development of common rules and standards for the construction and maintenance of ships and other marine structures. The IACS plays an important role in ensuring the safety and security of global maritime transportation.
