Good question. Ultrasonic non-destructive testing, or simply UT inspection, is a method that characterises the thickness or internal structure of a test piece through the use of high frequency sound waves. A normal UT inspection system is comprised of numerous functional units, including a pulser/receiver, display devices and a transducer. The pulser/receiver acts as an electronic device capable of producing high voltage electrical pulses.

Driven by the pulser, the transducer generates a high frequency ultrasonic energy. This sound energy is then introduced and propagates throughout the materials in the form of waves. Should there be any discontinuity, such as a crack in the wave path, part of the energy will be reflected back from the flaw service. The transducer transforms the reflected wave signal into an electrical signal, which is then displayed on a screen.
