Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement (UTM)

Ultrasonic thickness measurement (UTM) is a non-destructive testing method used to measure the metal thickness of plate, piping or structural steel.

Thickness measuring is essential across many industries to monitor corrosion, erosion and damage. Ultrasonic thickness measurement (UTM) is commonly used and the method can be applied to a wide range of structures and components that includes ship hulls, piping, pressure vessels and structural steel.

Detection of metal loss caused by corrosion, erosion or damage is vital to ensure the continued safety and operation of the tested item/structure.  It can also help determine if repair work or replacement is needed or if the item/structure should be retired. Ultrasonic thickness measurement data gives customers the necessary information required to determine if the tested item has the adequate metal thickness for which it was designed.

The portability of the testing equipment allows for on-site measurement and results are instant. If a problem has been detected by the technique, additional non-destructive testing methods may be used to further investigate the findings.
