New NDT technique for inspection of composites

| By Mary Page Bailey

Insono is a new non-destructive testing (NDT) technique for the inspection of composite repairs applied to metallic components. Insono complements this company’s Technowrap range, and provides operators with assurance required by the regulatory bodies. It also allows for the extension of defined-life repairs, reducing waste while avoiding carbon emissions from traditional steel-replacement alternatives. Validated by The Welding Institute (TWI) with patent and U.K. accreditation pending, the portable hand-held equipment and specifically designed probes (photo) allow for inspection of all geometries, including complex configurations, and can easily be deployed in the field in hard-to-reach locations. — ICR Integrity.
