Seamless pipe test.

Hi, Friendes

I want to test the seamless pipe by ultrasonic contact type method.

To cover the maximum area

# I am using the angle probe 45 degree and 4 MHz and crystal size is 8x 9 mm and the beam spread is approx. 5 degree. As per my knoledge the effective beam width of this probe is Less Is it right ?

# Can i use the 10 mm dia lonitudinal beam probe with the angulated wadge ( angle is 45 degree ) ? In this case can i get the more effective beam width ?

Please Help to sort out my purpose. Thanking you.

S.G.

Can you be more specific? What exactly are you testing the seamless pipe for? Is there a girth weld involved?
What exactly are you trying to detect?

The defect is N5 notch and wall thickness is 5 mm to 15 mm. There is no weld nothing.

Re: Seamless pipe test.
Hello Shashu,
The formula for the determination of beam width Y = arc sin1.22(wavelength/diameter)
Which means that as the diameter of the crystal increases the beam width at a certain beam path length will decrease.
Are you trying to detect the N5 notch radially as well as longitudinally?
The diameter of the pipe will affect the beam spread and beam angle when testing longitudinally.
Will you be shaping the probe shoe to the contour of the pipe?

Regards

Neil Burleigh

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.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
