US Dry Couplant

Does anybody knows of some rubber to be used as dry couplant?
I have to inspect a compossite and it can't get wet.

You can get ready made Dry Contact probes from various manufacturers. You can try with NDT Solutions,UK, Sonatest, KrautKramer GmbH,Ultran Group USA. They have range of Probes for the application mentioned.

Re: US Dry Couplant
Dear Alejandro,

Sonemat sells dry couplant fluid (a 2 part mix so you can set it into whatever shape you want). It is efficient, but not as hardwaring as some couplants.

Use the www.sonemat.com website to contact and get prices.

Mark.

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
