Re: lamb wave prob
Hi Yasin,
Lamb Waves are generated when you impinge the surface of your part with a conventional wave (typically longitudinal) at the appropriate angle to generate the desired Lamb mode in your part. Therefore, conventional angle beam probes can be used if you select the correct angle and frequency. This selection involves understanding the testpiece geometry and the many possible Lamb modes that can be generated in it. Then you can select the necessary test configuration (probes, frequency, etc.).
It is also possible to use variable angle probes having broad bandwidth so that many modes can be generated by changing angle and frequency content.
More recently, phased array probes are being used to select modes electronically.
But, once again, your first step is stating your test piece and flaw geometries.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
