UTComp has introduced a unique and innovative approach to the inspection of FRP, UltraAnalytix™ . This research was in response to repeated requests from end-users needing reliable and valid information about the integrity of FRP equipment and information about life-cycle planning. This prompted UTComp to examine alternatives to traditional inspection techniques: acoustic emission, visual inspection and destructive testing.
UltraAnalytix™ gives customers the advantage they deserve.
UTComp’s UltraAnalytix™ inspection system ensures the safe performance and maximum lifespan of FRP assets, saving clients millions of dollars in replacement costs.
We have worked hard to create a customer-focused solution. Using the UltraAnalytix™ to inspect your FRP assets, you have the opportunity to improve reliability and have scope control and budget cycles as a priority.
UTComp will give you objective information that you will be able to track over time and you can know years before you need to repair or replace your assets. No other testing system is able to provide this information. UltraAnalytix™ can be used in a variety of fiberglass assets – regardless of shape and size. It can also be used while the equipment is operating and limits confined space entry.
