Measuring Stainless overlay 309L, 347L, 317L,316 etc.

Hello from South Carolina!!! well, once a year I go out to you all for you opinons on the above subject. Is there a system out there that can measure the thickness of Austentic overlay(ferrite)0.8 to 7.8 and it will vary. The welding application can vary also, but it is mostly automated. The backing is SA 285C or 516-70 mild steel (pressure vessels)or SA210 boiler tubes.For UT, the Z's factor is only 2. For magnetic induction or eddy current, the ferrite is the problem. We still measure befor overlay and after. The thickness will range from 1mm to 12mm.

M.C. Macke.

Re: Measuring Stainless overlay 309L, 347L, 317L,316 etc.
In response to Mike Macke's question a few weeks ago Dinsley Devices and Inspection Software have recently installed an automated system to measure Inconel cladding in the bore of 125mm - 300mm carbon steel pipe. Cladding thickness 0mm - 10mm, +/- 0.1mm. Should be suitable for other similar materials.


Product Spotlight


Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
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

Robotic laser shearography enables 100% inspection of complex, flight-critical composite structures

An article in “Composites World Magazine” showcases Non Destructive Testing of aero-structures
with Laser Shearography. Over the years Dantec Dynamics has supplied many solutions for the aerospace industry. Referring to specific customer projects several of these cases are examined to outline the advantages of using Laser Shearography for automated defect detection.
