Ultrasonic Testing - Wall Thickness Measurement

Ultrasonic Testing - Wall Thickness Measurement

3-day training course, covering:

  • Noise and behavior of sound
  • Equipment (analog and digital)
  • Probes and probe selection
  • Disconnect Means
  • Calibration and purpose of calibrating
  • Interpretation of A-frame presentations
  • Risks related to the measurement with digital wall thickness measuring instruments
  • Measurement of flat, curved, corrosion-covered and coated surfaces
  • Measurement of high temperature piping
  • Practicum; measurements:
  • Carbon
  • Stainless steel
  • Cast iron
  • Non-ferrous metals
  • Aluminum
  • Plastics


  • Candidates successfully completing the course will be able to conduct research in ultrasonic testing of various materials in equipment, steel construction, particularly in the process industry.
  • Ideally suited for volume research
  • Intended for technicians who regularly appraise ultrasonic wall thickness measurements and utilize ultrasound equipment with A-frame presentation and those working with digital thickness gauges
  • Can be delivered in-house and, after consultation, be adapted/extended to include use of own equipment, data logging, practical testing, and use of own documents.
