Ultrasonic Probe Holders

I'm looking for a manufacturer of probe holders or devices that would hold Krautkramer style transducers on the surface of large cylindrical forgings for mechanized scanning. The cylindrical forging is rotated in a lathe, while the holder is attached to a moving carriage. Presently I am using gimbal style holders that need to be replaced due to wear and breakage.

TACTIC manufactures several different styles of "coupling shoes" which might be adapted for your system. Some of these shoes are shown on our web site. A link is provided. Or contact me at tactictest@aol.com.

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak
...
es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
