Ultrasonic Inspection Services
CST’s Ultrasonic Thickness Testing (UTT) uses high frequency ultrasonic wave detection to measure material thickness and identify metal loss due to corrosion or erosion of steel, as well as identify internal imperfections.
CST’s UTT allows us to identify deficiencies in remaining metal thickness that can be used to assess the expected remaining life of an asset, develop repair procedures or determine if the asset can be modified for other storage applications.
Advantages of Ultrasonic Thickness Testing:
- Provides instant and accurate results
- Measures material thickness
- Could be used with access to only one surface
- Determines acceptance or rejection of a test object based on a reference code or standard
All field inspection data, engineering analysis and evaluation of work performed is translated into the proper report format and delivered in a timely manner. The findings of the inspection shall be documented by field notes, instrumentation readings and photographs.
All inspections are performed to meet or exceed AWWA, NFPA, FM and API-12B specifications.

An Innovative Cover Solution Extends Reservoir Life
Styles come and go, and sometimes reappear. Take hats, for example. What’s fashionable in the 60s went out in the 70s but may come back a few decades later. However, when it comes to municipal water facilities, yesterday’s model is gone for good, replaced by a more contemporary, sustainable design.
