Ultrasonic Test involves sending a high sound Frequency through the polyethylene material.
The sound wave will travel through the test sample and be reflected from the opposing side.
If there is a flaw in the part, the sound wave will be reflected before it reaches its destination, and a visual indication is seen on the ultrasonic monitor.
The following test can be carried out:
• Inspection of polyethylene pipe flanges.
• Material thickness testing.
• Inspection wear on bends and pipe lines.
