ut of carbon steel shaft
Please can somebody suggest me to do UT of carbon steel shaft size of 320 dia and 4200 length. I have been told by UT inspector level 2 straight beam transducer never be used for crack detection it is only used for lamination or thickness. Is it so.
Shaft can be inspected radially and axially with straight beam or angle beam transducer.

for the in-service inspection for fatigue transverse cracks the sensitivity setting is based on the detection of standard saw cut made from the rounded surface of the shaft at rectangle to the axis, the depth of the saw cut for each area of the shaft is defined by the local procedures and regulations, for example for the same type of railway car shaft - wheel-seat area - the depth may vary from 0.5 to 3 mm in different countries

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
