Are your Underwater Structures in a good condition? – UT Meter

An ultrasonic thickness (UT) meter is a tool commonly used by Commercial and Specialised Diving with reference to inspection work.

The device is frequently used to monitor metal thickness on underwater structures. It helps to provide a more accurate analysis of the condition of the structure. One of the main advantages of using the UT meter is that it does not damage the structure. This has proven to be invaluable for the underwater inspection of structures, which should be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis.  Other destructive methods could further deteriorate the structure and should be avoided.
