Ultrasonic Bolt Testing

UTB – Ultrasonic Bolt TestingĀ iV-bolting offers the services of torque and tensioning combined with ultrasonic bolt tensioning measurements.Ultrasonic testing is an NDT method using high frequency sound energy above the human hearing level of 20 kHz,and is produced by a piezoelectric crystal (transducer) which converts electrical energy into mechanical vibrations, and back to electrical energy for interpretation of the electronic signal. Ultrasonic testing is capable of detecting surface and subsurface defects and/or discontinuities, and is commonly used for measuring material thickness, and for detecting flaws in newly manufactured or in-service components.iV-bolting uses the MAX II Ultrasonic Bolt Tension Monitor that defines the measurement of the actual elongation produced by tightening a threaded fastener.We can measure Elongation, Load, Stress, %Strain and Time (nanoseconds). very accurately in fasteners of virtually any material from 12,5 mm to 30.000 mm in length.
