Welcome to [NDT Inspection Portal]’s long range ultrasonics (guided wave ultrasonics) (GUL) group, a place for professionals to connect and discuss the latest techniques and technologies in long range ultrasonic inspection.
Guided wave ultrasonics (GUL) is a type of non-destructive testing (NDT) method that uses ultrasonic waves to inspect the condition of long, linear components such as pipelines, tanks, and pressure vessels. It is a specialized form of ultrasonic inspection that involves the use of a flexible probe or a permanent sensor mounted on the component to transmit ultrasonic waves along the length of the component.
The ultrasonic waves travel through the material of the component and are reflected back to the probe or sensor, allowing it to detect flaws, defects, or other abnormalities in the component. GUL is a long range inspection method that can inspect components over long distances, making it particularly useful for inspecting components that are difficult to access or in hard-to-reach locations.
GUL is commonly used in industries such as oil and gas, power generation, and aerospace, where it is important to regularly inspect the condition of long, linear components to ensure the integrity and safety of the components. It is a relatively fast and efficient method of inspection that can be used to inspect a wide range of materials and components, including those made of metal, plastic, and composite materials.
