Phase Array UT

Hi,

I am going to invest PA UT OMNI SCAN 16:128, Olympus for weld inspection, thickness from 10 - 50 mm. Anyone can advise me which accessories needed?

Thanks

Hi!
Probably, the variant on 32 channels will be more interesting.
Pay attention to the sizes of prisms.
At the big length of a prism you cannot supervise a direct beam welded seams on 10ìì and with small radius.
Probably, for a thickness 10ìì it is required more 5ÌÃö, (but the price...)
Necessity in phase frray on 64-128 elements depends on objects of the control.
Necessity of the scanner depends on objects of the control.
As the encoder on badly prepared surface to work not conveniently.
See alternative offers (comparing the price).
Successes!

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak
...
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.

...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
