Ultrasonic Examination

Our diverse UE machines have been designed and manufactured to accommodate the needs of entry level customers to international retesting facilities.

  • No Valve Removal - with provisions outlined in our PHMSA/DOT Special Permits, cylinders retested with 100% UE can forego internal visual inspection.  
  • No Product Discharge - the immediate impact of being able to test in lieu of internal visual and hydrotesting is product discharge is completely avoidable, saving time and money. 
  • Reduced Overhead - designed to achieve more with less, our UE machines can be operated with one techinican while maintaining high test volumes.
