Aust. S S 304L Plate Ultrasonic Examination
zoom image

screen shot of UT machine

Dear Experts,

While carrying out Ultrasonic examination of SS 304L plates of 85mm thk. with straight beam transducer, we are observing indications at almost all over the plate.

Depth of indications is 69mm to 75mm from scanning surface. While scanning from opposite direction same indications appears again at depth of 69mm to 75mm from scanning surface. No indication observed while scanning with angle beam transducer.

Manufacturing route of plate is Forged slab ----> Hot rolling to plate.

At Forged slab stage was done and no discontinuities/indications was observed.

Acceptable norms is 3mm FBH (DAC Method).

So, requesting to tell us the reasons for such typical indications.


Regards,
Ashutosh Singh

Many mistakes
1. Change Probe to Single Element
2. Enter Part thickness to 100 mm
3. Enter PRF to Auto

Dear Sir,
From the display it looks that your back echo is coming from about 72 mm. (unless you call this defect echo)
As pointed out by Mr. Anmol Birring it looks to be a problem with your range setting and probe delay. (your display shows that the probe delay is 18.4878 microseconds ?).
If you are still stuck up, please send the display with range setting of 300 mm and three back echoes at the defect and sound regions (along with probe details).
Best wishes
P V SASTRY

Dear Friend,

First u must have the calibration on same material block to ensure the range setting is proper.

i want to say u must have SS 304L known thickness block for verification.

thank you.

I agree with Mr. Birring's comments and would add that it may be useful to use a probe with a higher frequency.
One explanation for your problem is ghosting, where indications from the previous pulse are still detectable after the next pulse starts. To test for this, try:
Damp the signals by placing your hand (with couplant on) on the opposite face - the signal should drop if it is ghosting.
Reduce the PRF - the signal should disappear or move position relative to the back wall echo.
Increase the test frequency - ghosting usually disappears.
Combined double probes are best used within their focal range and are rarely suitable at 100mm.
