What is the difference between phased array ultrasonic testing vs ultrasonic testing?
Phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) is a form of ultrasonic testing (UT). The difference between phased array ultrasonic testing vs ultrasonic testing is the transducer. A PAUT transducer uses multiple elements during a scan. Beams are emitted sequentially at multiple angles allowing PAUT to create a more detailed scan. Other UT methods, on the other hand, use a single probe to analyze an asset. By emitting multiple beams, PAUT allows for the inspection of even the most complex assets. Complex assets can be inspected with greater ease and in less time using the PAUT method of non-destructive testing. One of the best and most advanced UT tools is the M2M Gekko.
