Guided wave technology
Low frequency ultrasonic waves are used to detect defects and imperfections some distance away from the ultrasonic source in a range of components. A typical application of Long Range Ultrasonic Testing (LRUT) is the detection of corrosion and metal loss in pipes and pipelines. A set of piezoelectric transducers sends the ultrasonic waves in both directions along the length of the pipe.
