ultrasonic inspection in dual interface materials

Very good morning

I need information on how to inspect a pipe that is comprised of two different materials (double layer). Its outer layer is steel and the inner layer is polyurethane, thickness 10 mm both surfaces. I need to know how to inspect the polyurethane layer.

Attentive to your comments, best regards.

Have a look at Olympus, they have an special transducer and works quite fine on rubber over steel. Regards

Just to avoid confusion from the message above, we at Olympus NDT have several transducer solutions for measurement of polyurethane or rubber over steel and also for checking the bonding. However it is a very different situation when you are trying to test a highly attenuating, low acoustic impedance material like polyurethane *through* steel, because most of the sound energy reflects from the steel backwall and sets up strong multiple echoes that interfere with any echoes from the polymer liner. The short answer is that it is usually impractical without employing advanced techniques like digital wave subtraction or attempting a pitch/catch test with custom angle beams. In my experience neither technique is used outside laboratories.

Hi Tom and Manuel, thanks for the info, will have practical information on how to measure thickness in double-layer pipes (steel-polyurethane) using a single crystal transducers and normal incidence.

best regards
