Industry leader in phased array ultrasonics and eddy current testing

NDE Associates, Inc. provides nondestructive testing (NDT) inspection and Witness services for petroleum and power industries. The company specializes in the application of advanced NDT techniques, including phased arrays, eddy current testing (ECT) and ultrasonic testing (UT).

Improving Flaw Sizing by Phased Array. The figures above show how the flaw sizing and definition of three side drilled holes is improved by increasing probe aperture, from left (holes look like arcs)  to right (closer resemblance to holes) by optimizing phased array parameters. It is not just doing inspection, it is doing the right way.
