Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT)

The UT-Phased Array Technique is a process wherein data are generated by controlled incremental variation of the ultrasonic beam angle in the azimuthal or lateral direction while scanning the object under examination. 

This process offers an advantage over processes using conventional search units with fixed beam angles because it acquires considerably more information about the reflecting object by using more aspect angles in direct impingement.
