The remaining thickness of a steel pipe or a steel vessel can easily be determined using an ultrasonic thickness measuring device. Not only steel, but a lot of non porous materials can be checked with an ultrasonic measuring device.
Measuring the thickness takes just a few seconds and is a non destructive testing method. We also have special measuring heads that can be used up to approx 90 °C.
We also use ultrasonic leak detection. With this technique small leaks in pressure vessels can be detected. But also the ultrasonic leak has many great possibilities. Checking whether a valve is closing completely or checking compressed air systems for leakage.
Findings small leaks in floor heating systems or drinking water lines can be don by using ultrasonic leak detection in combination with compressed air.
