TṺV Rheinland Sonovation is a company that concentrates on the application of advanced ultrasonic technology, acoustic emission and pulsed eddy current methods.

Included in this is service work using phased array and time-of-flight diffraction methods. Much of this technology can be applied online at high temperatures and flaw sizing/monitoring has been carried out at 475℃.

The TÜV Rheinland Sonovation training and consultancy is manned by a large team of highly-experienced Level III engineers who offer consultancy and training with the company's accredited training school, which specialises in phased array, TOFD and critical sizing courses. Examinations in accordance with ISO 9712 and ASNT SNT-1A certification are available. Bespoke courses can also be tailored to suit clients' needs, including a three-day introduction course.

The pulsed eddy current technology is licensed from Shell Global Solutions in Amsterdam and TÜV Rheinland Sonovation has now gained several years of experience in its use for corrosion under insulation and other surface layers. With the exclusive D-PEC inspection services, TÜV Rheinland Sonovation enables the client to monitor corrosion at the D-annulus level of a surface casing without interrupting production.

To augment this technology, TÜV Rheinland Sonovation has a highly-qualified R&D team, which has completed several significant technical advances in UT inspection and complex geometry inspection, including beam simulation and modelling in exotic material inspection and software aids for procedure preparation and reporting formats.
