What Indication on C-scan
Download What Indication on C-scan

Dear Sirs,
I just C-scan to check corrosion of piping system, the condition of surface has coasting, thickness is 12.7 mm ,carbon steel material and i use the hydroform equipment, It has indication as attachment.
I would like to know what indication it is?
I hope to receive your soonest reply
Thanks for your help!

Tuong,
Make sure about the surface of object in that area. add little more dB and rescan the area.

Tuong,

You are using Hydroform probe and your gate setup is flank T(B/1 - A/1). Try changing to peak or narrow the gates.You are catching the small peak before the 2nd backwall and the result is the red area in the C-scan.
I think this peak it is just a noise because the dB in this area are increased from the manually constructed TCG line with 3-4 points.

Dear Dancho,
As you said,
If has corrosion, must be have indication before first backwall echo?
Thanks for your help

This is not corrossion, but it is interesting to know exactly why this signal (false indication) appears in that position, normally is at 1.4 times the thickness.

I have two questions: 1. Do It happened in all the tubes inpected?; and 2. is it shown in the same relative depht allways?

I believe the signal you refer to is due to a sound path of long wave in one direction and shear wave in the other. There is debate on how and why a shear wave is produced but the numbers fit when analysing the possible time paths.
Maybe the edge of the beam creates a radial beam creating a shear wave.
This signal varies in strength depending on probe type and manufacturer.

That is a mode converted shearwave created by the angled, focused Lwave occuring before the 1st critical angle and releasing an unusable shearwave. C-scan is pickling it up because the signal is crossing gate b, and you are reading edge to edge. A peak to peak c-scan would eliminate it.
