Advanced Ultrasonic Testing
This class is an in depth approach to Ultrasonic Weld Examination, class length is 60 hrs, with 45 hrs of practical application.
Equipment: Review equipment and instrument settings for practical application
Codes: Review AWS/ASME code for equipment, calibration and acceptance
Instrument Qualification: Horizontal, vertical linearities and dB accuracy cal.
Production Calibration: Perform calibrations per ASME and AWS Codes.
Special Applications: Transfer correction and through transmission techniques
Scan Plan: Testing approach based upon joint design & typical flaw locations
Flaw Detection: POD (Probability of detection) angle, approach and scan face
False Indications: Backing bars, get signals, redirection (mode converstion)
Flaw Characterization: 2D/3D, Planar, cyclindrical & spherical, joint design critical, plates with known flaws and identification of signals.
Flaw Sizing: Code requirments, advanced techniques, tip diffractin
Weld Joints: UT approach to tee, corner, butt & skewed plate and tubular joints, dissimilar materials and thicknesses, think material and long seams.
Production Scanning 100+ test samples mixed between natural/artificial flaws
Benefit 1:The last day of class, I put out my seismic samples. If you pass the exam, I can certify you if I represent your company or I can work with your company's Level III for certification. My seismic samples are code compliant.
Benefit 2: Training certification and CEU's/PDH's will be given for certification renewal or toward meeting the 120 hrs of ACCP-UT testing requiments. Training hours will also be awarded for this session.
