Test blocks for training

Hello all

I would like to purchase some test blocks with internal or surface cracks to make some demonstration to my students for UT, penetrant and MPI inspections.

Is there any vendor located in Europe?

Massimiliano

Re: Test blocks for training
If you are looking for 'standard' calibration blocks then there are many vendors (ourselves included). If you are looking for 'realistic' defective training samples than I would recommend Sonaspection (www.sonaspection.com)

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.
