  • The phased array technique, a good way to inspect for corrosion and cracks on bolts and studs

The phased array technique, a good way to inspect for corrosion and cracks on bolts and studs

The phased array technique is an advanced inspection ultrasonic method used by Applus+ to check bolts and studs, among other assembling pieces. This technique allows a company to detect signs of corrosion, providing clear images that reflect the condition of the bolt thread. The bolts no longer need to be disassembled to be inspected properly. [...]

Non-destructive testing helps nuclear plants identify problems with concrete structures

It is imperative for power companies that generate electricity using nuclear fuels perform routine testing on their facilities. Testing helps identify potential weaknesses or structural deficiencies early so that companies can address them before excessive downtime or loss of power generation capabilities occur. In no small measure, testing also ensures the safety of employees. Assessing the integrity of [...]
