bond tester - signal evaluation

We are working with ZETEC Bond Tester S21R in sondicator mode for honeycomb structure test. We are able to record 1inch D disbond, but indication from that decrease to 1/2 of origin using 12 dB. It is OK ? According to general formula 20log H1/H2 should be 6 dB. Do you have anybody explanation ? Thank you.

The Gain steps on The Zetec MIZ-21 series are 1/2 dB, Not 1 dB so a gain change of 12 is 6dB

This is explained in the manual, (Section 4.5.8 Probe Gain, page 4-13 in the MIZ-21 Manual, I don't have the S21R version immediately to hand) but who reads them that closely...

I have to say it confused me at first, and on a bad day it still does...

Who could be having a zetec bond tester S-21R version to send to me. am having problems trying to use x-y mode (flying dot disbond measurement) and delamination setups.

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.
