Consulting and Ultrasonic System Design

NTS Ultrasonics provides consulting and ultrasonic system design services to clients developing industrial and scientific applications involving ultrasonic technology. Sometimes our consulting will start with a scoping study, an inexpensive study which provides the opportunity to evaluate the client request in some technical detail. This enables us to better establish technical feasibility and project costing.

Some examples of recent scoping studies include: investigating the NDT of off-road tyres, investigating methods of ultrasonic separation, and investigating the use of short range ultrasonic guided waves for detecting hidden corrosion.

R&D projects involving ultrasonic technology often require special ultrasonic equipment not readily available off the shelf, or new ideas and designes to be tested. NTS Ultrasonics has extensive experience in offering technical advice and designing and building prototype systems for ultrasonic application development.

NTS Ultrasonics has extensive experience in technical aspects of ultrasonic rail flaw detection and can offer independant advice and technical support.

Consulting: Ultrasonic Technology and NDT

Consulting services offered by NTS Ultrasonics can include:
feasibility and scoping studies
technical evaluations
literature and patent surveys
design
prototype development
development of new test and measurement procedures
develop NDT procedures
conceptual development for new instrumentation
Some examples of our consulting and design work include:
ultrasonic non-destructive testing:
• inspection solutions for difficult ultrasonic NDT problems
• procedure development for new ultrasonic inspections
• third party monitoring of NDT inspections
electronic and system design for ultrasonic applications:
• electronics and transducer for a Doppler flow meter development
• electronics for a subsea densitometer
ultrasonic rail flaw detection:
• system and electronic design for ultrasonic inspection systems and rail flaw detection
• wheel probe development
high power ultrasonics:
• advice on applying ultrasonics to scale mitigation in pipes
• advice on industrial applications of high power ultrasonic technology
other applications of ultrasonics:
• use of embedded ultrasound for keeping sensors and mechanical systems clean
We are happy to consult on small issues requiring only a few hours through to larger, more complex projects.

Ultrasonic System Design

NTS Ultrasonics offers independant ultrasonic system design services. We have extensive experience in the design of both low power ultrasonic systems for measurement and non-destructive testing applications, and high power ultrasonic systems for scale and buildup mitigation in pipes, laboratory scale mineral processing, and specialized ultrasonic cleaning. All electronic, mechanical, software, and FPGA configuration design is done in-house. Search units for NDT, including ultrasonic wheel probes, are designed in-house, and high power ultrasonic transducers and sonicators are also designed in-house.

We are often required to design ultrasonic systems to evaluate new ideas for clients. We often design and build prototypes and one-off special systems. As examples, we have built a one off system to allow a client to explore the possibility of using ultrasonic particle separation methods for waste water treatment, designed a special acoustic emission transducer for a client interested in monitoring the drying rate of timber in kilns, and built a special ultrasonic reactor to allow a client to evaluate high power ultrasound as an aid in the processing of gold bearing ore.

Consulting: Ultrasonic Rail Flaw Detection

NTS Ultrasonics Pty Ltd has worked with Australian and overseas companies involved with ultrasonic rail flaw detection, as well as with several Australian railroads, offering design services and technical support. This work includes investigations into stress measurement in rail, effects of overloading, detection of various classes of rail defects, and improvements to instrumentation and wheel probe design. This work has also involved other tasks such as reviewing investigation reports, reviewing rail flaw detection standards, and providing technical advice on various matters related to ultrasonic rail flaw detection.

NTS Ultrasonics has many years of experience in matters related to the design and technology of rail flaw detection systems and NDT systems in general, but is independant of any particular company supplying such equipment. As such, NTS Ultrasonics can provide independant advice in matters involving rail flaw detection.
