multi echo

Hi everybody...........I'd like to know about "use of multi-echo equipment" to make thickness measurements on coatings.

Please, can someone send any informations about that?

please send at: enimsa.tpa@gmail.com

thanks

Eng. Vladimir Perez P.

Re: multi echo
Multi-echo measurement, more commonly known as echo-to-echo measurement, is a technique that is available on many ultrasonic thickness gages and flaw detectors, used to measure the thickness of a metal substrate beneath a non-metallic coating without including the coating thickness. In that sort of situation (like thick paint over a steel pipe), there will be multiple backwall echoes from the metal but only a single echo from the coating. The time interval between any two of the metal backwall echoes represents one round trip of the sound wave in the metal, so by measuring that interval the instrument measures the metal thickness only.

...
es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
