Phased array is widely used in several industrial sectors. This method is an advanced NDT method that is used to detect component failures i.e. cracks or flaws and thereby determine component quality. Due to the possibility to control parameters such as beam angle and focal distance, this method is very efficient regarding the defect detection and speed of testing.phased array can also be used for wall thickness measurements in conjunction with corrosion testing.
