The capability of Acoustic Emission (AE) Testing to detect and locate emission sources caused by surface and internal discontinuities in the vessel walls, welds, and attached components, makes it an effective tool in assessing volumetric integrity during the pressure test of a vessel. It acts as an excellent supporting technique for other nondestructive testing methods when employed as a primary examination method during hydrostatic or pneumatic testing.
