The acoustic emission method not only detects the presence of rust spots, but also locates their position

When materials bloom, surface waves are generated which can be localised by means of acoustic emission. This enables AKUVIB to locate corrosion even in inaccessible places.

Leakages in pipelines or incipient corrosion can be localised using the acoustic emission method. Repeated tests can show the progression of damage.

The parameters:

  • Corrosion detection in hard-to-reach places
  • Holistic detection of the test object
  • Non-destructive measurement
  • Localisation of corrosion events
  • Detection of leaks in underground pipelines
