The UltraAnalytix inspection system is the only ultrasonic non-destructive testing method to provide Fitness-For-Service assessments for FRP composites by inspectors who are certified in accordance with ASNT SNT-TC-1A practice.
UTComp Inc., a global FRP composites engineering and inspection company, has established a certification programme for UltraAnalytix inspection personnel that complies with the requirements of Recommended Practice SNT-TC-1A by the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT).
UltraAnalytix is a patented non-intrusive, non-destructive testing method for assessing the condition of FRP composite materials. The certification programme for UltraAnalytix inspection personnel is certified by a third-party NDT Level III professional, said Geoff Clarkson, UTComp founder and Chief Technical Officer.
“It enables UTComp’s inspectors and engineers to be certified to perform UltraAnalytix inspections that meet the highest standards for data acquisition to ensure reliable analysis and results for FRP composite assets,” Clarkson said.
“Just like the qualifications of NDT inspectors for metal alloys and aerospace applications, this globally recognised certification assures our customers that our inspectors have proven their qualifications through the required training, practical experience and written examinations.
“It is a major step forward for FRP reliability confidence and will help realise the potential of composite materials for corrosion resistance, durability and sustainability.”
