Shearwave Inspection is an ultrasonic technique that transmits refracted sound waves at a predefined angle to the test area. Surfaces aligned to the beam path reflect the waves back to the transducer. Shearwave provides a highly sensitive method of detecting and evaluating defects in materials.
SHEARWAVE INSPECTION KEY ADVANTAGES:
- Highly accurate
- Minimal equipment required
- Low equipment costs
- Quickly screen large areas
- No health safety hazards, unlike with radiography
