Re: UT of Tee joint
Mr.Batt,

Can you give some more details of the weld. Anyway, No of scanning and scanning technique is depends on where you are looking for defects.

If the joint is full pen and if the joint permits both the side access, then you can scan half skip at both the sides so that you may get total coverage.

Please give some more details for more discussions.

With regards,

RT. Jeyakumar

DEAR FRIEND,
BY PULSE ECHO TECHNIQUE,MIN.ONE SCAN BY ANGLE PROBE FROM BEVELED PLATE FOR WELD DEFECT DETECTION,& ONE SCAN BY NORMAL PROBE FROM TOP PLATE(FLANGE) FOR LAMELLAR TEARING IN PLATE OR LACK OF FUSION IN WELD SIDE WALL.
