High frequency sound pulses are emitted from a transducer above a sample. The sound waves propagate through the sample, and reflect at interfaces. The reflected waves are monitored using a detector above the sample. The thickness of the sample, and the depth and type of flaw can be ascertained using this method. The method can be applied to most materials if sound transmission is good. Quick high sensitive results are obtained.

We can provide Ultrasonic Testing training suitable for PCN/EN473/ISO 9712 Levels 1, 2, and 3, and ASNT Level 3. Alternatively we can provide training suitable for candidates working to an employer written practice based on SNT-TC-1A; EN4179 and NAS410. Ultrasonic Testing is separated into three specific product sectors for certification purposes, Welds, Wrought Products (Forgings), and Castings.

Advanced Ultrasonics:

Prana Citra has developed Advanced Ultrasonic Techniques training programmes with our ultrasonic experts, in conjunction with several leading equipment manufacturers. In particular we offer training courses in Time of Flight Diffraction to PCN Levels 1, 2, and 3; and courses in Phased Array technology to PCN Levels 2 and 3. We are currently one of the very few training companies in the world offering such advanced ultrasonic training. Find out more about why you should choose Time of Flight Diffraction or Phased Array and learn about our research and development of Advanced Ultrasonic Techniques. A pre-requisite of these courses is an appropriate Level 1, 2 or 3 UT certificate.

Our Training :
Level Days Participant’s Starting Point
I 6 N/A
