Since defects, discontinuities and corrosion in a material can cause serious damage and result in financial losses, owners and operators of industrial plants demand an accurate, reliable and safe inspection method. Phased Array (PA) is an advanced method of Ultrasonic Testing to reveal defects hidden inside a structure or weld. In comparison to pulse-echo techniques, the advantages of Phased Array testing are its excellent repeatability, increased inspection speed, more accurate results and the ability to inspect complex geometries.

In light of growing interest in this Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) inspection method, SGS Industrial Services is pleased to invite you to a free 60-minute webinar, titled ’Advanced Ultrasonic Testing, Phased Array: Theory and Practice’.

SGS offers the globally available and free webinar on Phased Array on November 8 and 9 in order to inform participants about the characteristics of this Advanced Ultrasonic Testing technique as well its advantages and disadvantages. Furthermore, SGS seeks to provide attendees with thorough information on pre-service and in-service applications of Phased Array as well as Flange Face Inspection and Corrosion Mapping using this inspection method. With extensive experience and expertise in the field of Non-Destructive Testing, SGS provides not only theoretical background, but also very useful practical information, backed by various examples of PA scans.

Hosted by Norbert Trimborn, Strategic Business Leader Advanced NDT, the free 60-minute webinar will be available across the globe in Asia, Europe, the Americas and Africa and will be available in four sessions to meet the needs of attendees in every time zone.

Four webinar sessions are scheduled, twice on each of two days:
