Immersion Tank - Rust Control

We are a high volume inspection company examining automotive air bag components using robitic immersion (UT) techniques. The industry is quickly moving from aluminum to steel components.

I would appreciate any information or suggestions on a water based additive for raw uncoated steel for the immersion tanks that does not leave any oily residue or foaming properties and of course, environmental friendly.

We have had good results using immersion tank additives from Sonotech, Inc.

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
