hii All,

can You please help me on below Doubts ?

(1) If I use 2 MHz , 4 MHz, 5 MHz probe in conventional UT, for same thickness which probe will give right result ?

(2) what Difference the MHz can do in our inspection ?

No single answer can be provided. The old EN 583-1 summarised the situation nicely;
"...the selection of frequency shall take into account the sound attenuation in the material and the reflectivity of imperfections. The higher this frequency; the greater the examination resolution, but the sound waves are more attenuated (or spurious signals due to the structure are greater). The choice of frequency thus represents a compromise between these two factors."

Another limiting factor can be the standard to which you are working to. Some standards are very prescriptive and define very limited frequencies that may be used.

I mean no disrespect, but your question indicates you have not received enough training to perform any sort of ultrasonic examination on your own. This is your employer’s responsibility and not your fault.

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?
