UTPA Probe Selection

Hello everyone!

My company want to buy olympus omniscan x3 32/128, so i have question about choosing probes.
We have joint from 8-70mm thick. Type of joint V;X;K...
we would like to choose probes that will allow us to make fewer scans and do it in accordance with EN13588,
the deviation from the optimal hit is plus/minus 6 degrees.
so what heads should we choose 32 elements or 64?
referring to the norm, we should perform two types of scan:escan and sscan in class B.

Tomasz,
You need at least one pair of 5Mhz 64 element probes (I recommend with elements pitch less than 1 mm to have good beam steering) then you can run Compound scan(combination of linear and S scan) or FMC if you want to get good coverage and appropriate angles for inspection but still I am not sure that you can cover the all fusion face by +-6 degree for 70 mm by one pass scaning.for thin welds you can select low profile 16 or 32 element probes to have better access to root in half skip.if there are Austenitic welds in your inspection plan, you should also focus on DLA or DMA probes.

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform

The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modal
...
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.

SITEX CPSERIES

Teledyne ICM’s CPSERIES has been designed with a view to revolutionizing the handling and perfor
...
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).
