About the detecting depth using UT technique for austenitic stainless steel and nickel base alloy

What is the maximum detecting depth? For example,
a 400mm thick plate, material as Incoloy 800H.

Your question is not clear. Did you mean the feasibility of getting a back wall echo from a 400 mm thick Incoloy 800H plate?

If that is what you meant, it is possible using the right probe and instrument combination.

Or are you interested in detecting a discontinuity in such a plate? If this is what you meant, the size of a discontinuity that can be detected depends on several factors including the surface condition, grain size etc. Planar indications of a smaller diameter can be detected compared to spherical / round indications but there can be exceptions too! Since you are discussing a plate, it is expected that both the surfaces are accessible and thus the metal path that needs to be detected is a little more than half the thickness, thus about 250 mm in your case.

If you clarify the question / application, better answers will come.

Regards

You could always take a piece of scrap, create a "defect" like that you must find, then try to find it. If you do that and find the defect you have qualified your procedure.

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.
