Ultrasonic Non-destructive Testing (NDT) Equipment Are Used to identify and Eliminate
Safety-Related Risks in Various Sectors
No matter how robust a building's safety program is, there will be unforeseen problems that crop up
over time, necessitating ultrasonic non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment. Ultrasonic
nondestructive testing is the process of identifying and eliminating safety-related risks through the
use of ultrasonic equipment, tools, and techniques and finds application in aeronautical engineering,
art, civil engineering, electrical engineering, forensic engineering, mechanical engineering,
petroleum engineering, and systems engineering. In aeronautical engineering, NDT is used to test
fan blades and other engine parts. It can help avert engine failure. For instance, in December 2020,
a Japan Airlines 777 suffered an engine failure after the No. 16 fan blade of its No. 1 engine broke
en route between Naha, Japan, and Tokyo.
It can involve the detection of potential hazards from combustible materials to the safe handling of
highly flammable liquids or substances, the inspection of mechanical components, nonferrous and
ferrous components, and the testing of welds and other metal components.
As mentioned above, the primary reason why ultrasonic non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment
are so important for the safety of a structure is because they allow for the quick identification of any
flaws that may exist within the structure. When an error in equipment or machinery is discovered,
for example, a company will need to rely on experienced engineers to determine the cause and fix
the issue quickly.
Ultrasonic non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment use sound waves to analyze the integrity of a
material. It is utilized in a variety of building construction applications including reinforced
concrete stamped concrete, and fabricated lumber. Although the process utilizes ultrasound energy,
ultrasonic sound waves are actually far less harmful
