Ultrasonic Pole Testing & Infrared Testing
Ideally, Non-Destructive Testing is like regular oil changes on a vehicle. It should be done yearly. Sometimes, insurance companies offer discounts if the reports are provided acknowledging that NDT has been completed and the inspected equipment is safe.
At AAA Companies, we utilized two NDT techniques to best serve our customers-Ultrasonic Pole Testing & Infrared Testing. Both types of tests can be completed in a short time span, generating detailed reports that include easy-to-comprehend graphics that demonstrate possible problem areas. You can read more about each technique below.
Ultrasonic Pole Testing
Based on these reflection points (the areas at which the soundwaves impact and reflect back), the device builds a complete image of the inside of the pole. A technician can then evaluate the image to "diagnosis the health" of the pole and make maintenance or replacement recommendations.
