Guided Wave Testing (GWT) or Long-Range Ultrasonic Testing (LRUT) has two main benefits: the ability to test inaccessible areas without the probes being directly over the area of inspection, and the rapid testing of long lengths of pipes efficiently. The latter is often thought to be achieved by pushing the range to the longest diagnostic range possible.

However, with the new Sonyks™ guided wave system, the equipment setup and data collection are so quick and straightforward that this idea is now being challenged, particularly for complicated and easily accessible pipes. In this article we’ll take a look at the applicability of Sonyks™ LRUT system during a recent fire line ring assessment.
