What is ultrasonic immersion testing?

Ultrasonic immersion testing provides an effective method of inspecting small defects and material irregularities with a high Probability of Detection (POD), together with part inspection reporting.

This testing method provides accurate sizing and improved detection of sub-surface defects (improved NSR – Near Surface Resolution)
