Ultrasonic Thickness Testing


SWA offers ultrasonic thickness testing in Perth, WA and offshore locations

Ultrasonic Thickness Testing Perth

UT Thickness works by measuring the time of pulse-echo from a probe through material to determine the thickness and determine wall loss and assess for internal laminations.


Key features

  • Preventing failures that occur from flawed parts making it into assemblies without prior inspection.
  • Compliance to fabrication construction codes.
  • NATA accredited testing facility
  • Suitable for testing near surface defects in ferromagnetic materials.
  • Remote testing of welds and structure.
  • Testing of Gears and machined components.

Ultrasonic Thickness Testing (UT/UTT/UTM)

Thickness measuring is an essential aspect across many industries to monitor corrosion, erosion and damage to some areas that can not be inspected visually like plates, piping or structure. Ultrasonic thickness testing (UTT) is commonly used in many industries and the method can be applied to a wide range of structures and components including ship hulls, piping, pressure vessels and structural steel.

Monitoring of metal loss caused by corrosion, erosion or damage is vital to ensure the continued safety and operation of the inspected item/structure.  It can also help determine if repair or replacement work is needed or if the item/structure should be retired.

Ultrasonic thickness results gives clients the necessary information required to determine if the tested item has the adequate metal thickness for which it was designed and predict the current remaining life span.

An ultrasonic thickness gauge works by accurately measuring how long it takes for a sound pulse that has been generated by a small probe to travel through a test piece and reflect back from the inside surface or far wall. From this measurement, the thickness of the test piece is calculated and displayed on a digital screen.

Working with current projects, we offer a wide range of testing and inspection expertise to industries in Perth, WA and offshore.
