UT Thickness Approaches

Hello everyone, hoping to get some clarity about a few issues when
Doing a UT Thickness inspection:

#1) For High Temperature Items with manual UT:
A) Use a UT Temperature Correction formula
B) Heat up the Cal Block on the test item

I ask because trying to heat up the block doesnt seem to
reach the same temp as the specimen.

And #2 Surveying Ut thickness on a 1" thick CS material
with SS overlay..
Asked to find thickness of both the CS and the overlay
Started out showing good backwall with no noticeable reflections,Then I start to find High amplitude reflections midscreenRange.. should I suspect flaws/disbonding or could it be the interface?
(Calibrated to a CS step wedge.
Havent been able to get a block with reference flaws or weld overlay)

Re: UT Thickness Approaches
In Reply to Dayton at 07:32 Oct-29-2019 (Opening).

Please follow SE797. calibrate the UT machine at room temperature for each rise of 55 degree from room temperature 1% should be minus from the thickness you got after measuring the thickness at high temperature.

You should have to use high temp couplant and probe.

For overlay you may use Signus 6 + machine, may be you get the thickness.


Product Spotlight

Combination of Digital Image Correlation and Thermographic Measurements

The combination of measuring results from the digital image correlation (ARAMIS, DIC) and temperat
ure measuring data from infrared cameras permits the simultaneous analysis of the thermal and mechanical behavior of test specimens in the materials and components testing field.

Conformable wedge transducer

The conformability is obtained with a flexible membrane filled with water between the transducer and
the inspected component. The coupling between the membrane and the component requires a small quantity of water or couplant. The conformable wedge combines the acoustic performance of immersion technique with good coupling and low attenuation.


NDTkit RT, TESTIA's Digital Radiography software The NDTkit product line software for X-ray analysi
s. NDTkit RT is a software benefiting from the Ultis kernel which is dedicated to radiographic image analysis. It offers a set of tools and filtering processes to assist RT operators in finding relevant flaws.
