Flaw Detectors

Flaw Detection Analysis

Flaw DetectorsFlaw detectors are machines that use sound waves to detect internal flaws without destroying the sample. Flaw detectors can reveal cracks, holes, delaminations, and corrosion in various samples, such as:

  • Structural metals
  • Welds
  • Plastics
  • Composite materials
  • Ceramics

Applications for Flaw Detectors

Flaw detectors are used in quality control in various settings, including:

  • Materials testing laboratories
  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Plastics and ceramics industry, and more.

By aiming sound waves at a material and measuring how the waves are distorted, flaw detectors are able to find irregularities in many materials.

Considerations for purchasing a flaw detector

Flaw detectors are not all the same. Some measure material thickness and corrosion, while others only measure cracks, voids, and delaminations. Before purchasing a flaw detector, be sure that it can be used with the materials you need to test. Ease of use is another factor to consider before buying a flaw detector.
