Pipe Calibration Blocks

What is the minimum pipe calibration block length for Phased Array UT? ASME SEC V says 8" or 8T whichever is greater. But the block manufacturer says 12" is the minimum.

It is likely that your block manufacturer needs the additional length for working on the block.

Pratik,

You can also reference Fig T-434.3-2 for the alternate block where there is no minimum length defined; merely that the block length and arc be adequate.

This was one of the design considerations for the ERVW piping blocks from PH Tool.
