ASTM A388 ANGLE PROBE
zoom image



Hi,

I need advice regarding the 45degree probe mentioned in ASTM A388.

1. Is this very special probe provided by supplier based on pipe OD?

2. Do we need to perform the scan circumferentially so that the wave also travel circumferentially?

3. Anyone have any photographs of this probes?

Peter

I just published a paper that came out yesterday on ndt.net and that will help you with this inspection.
See https://www.ndt.net/search/docs.php3?id=25352

The probes are commercially available, generally 2 MHz is better but depends on your forging size.
Any other questions let me know.
