Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) Service:
We are first ever in Bangladesh introducing TOFD equipment and service. Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) is an advanced method of Ultrasonic inspection.

It is a very accurate and sensitive method for non-destructive testing of discontinuities in welded joints with small and bib dig pipes joint.

Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) ultrasonic test method can perform crack sizing very precisely and allow the owner to run the equipments or plants until the critical crack depth and length is not reached with a minimal risk of failure. TOFD equipment has nice recording option.

Conventional ultrasonic test method employs measuring of the amplitude of reflected signal which is relatively less reliable method of sizing defects because the amplitude strongly depends on the orientation of the crack.

Time of Flight Diffraction - TOFD ultrasonic test method uses the time of flight of an ultrasonic pulse to determine the position of a discontinuity of interest. The Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) ultrasonic test system consists of a pair of probes placed on opposite sides of a weld. Same time scanner contain two or more pair of probe. One of the probes emits an ultrasonic pulse that is collected by the probe on the other side. In undamaged pipe or test object, the signals picked up by the receiver probe are from two waves: one that travels along the surface and one that reflects off the far wall.

These ultrasonic waves are diffracted from the tip of the discontinuities, if exist. The size of the discontinuity or defect is calculated by measuring time of flight of the ultrasonic pulse.

If I compare to conventional UT testing TOFD ultrasonic testing instruments and probes are complex and expensive and require highly trained, skilled and experienced technicians.


We use OmniScan SX, made in Olympus Inc USA.

We have UT Level-II skill inspector for execute our TOFD service.
