Introduction to PAUT
For most technicians, Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) is the first thing that comes to mind when advanced NDT is mentioned. This introduction covers the basic principles behind phased array testing along with some key applications for which PAUT is now the go-to solution.
Introduction to ACFM®Array
ACFM is an efficient way to inspect carbon steel welds for surface breaking cracks. ACFM Array brings the method to a whole new level of efficiency. This training will explain how ACFM array works and how it can be used to make your inspection much faster and more reliable.
Introduction to PEC
Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is one of the greatest challenges facing asset integrity. Pulsed Eddy Current (PEC) offers a great addition to any corrosion toolkit as it allows to quickly screen insulated steel for any corrosion. This short training will introduce you to PEC and to its basic principles.
Introduction to ACFM®
This course will introduce you to the physics behind the Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM) technique. ACFM utilizes electromagnetic to detect and size surface-breaking cracks in steel structures and welds without requiring the removal of coatings or marine growth.
Introduction to GWUT
Guided Wave Ultrasonic Testing (GWUT) or Long Range UT (LRUT) is a screening method used to detect corrosion in pipelines. It is widely used for inspecting long lengths of pipe efficiently in terms of both time and cost. This training will introduce you to the physics behind guided wave ultrasonic testing.
Introduction to MFL
Before Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL), finding and mapping pitting in carbon steel structures was a long and tedious task, especially in storage tank floors. This training will cover the basics of MFL, sensors, saturation and will introduce you to the Silverwing patented STARS technology.
Introduction to Electromagnetism
This online training will introduce you to electromagnetism, covering a variety of subjects ranging from the fundamentals of electricity to the generation of eddy currents in a piece of metal. This can be a great introduction for anyone interested in learning more about science.
