UT of cast iron at elevated tempratures

Has anyone got any advise for thickness inspections of cast iron valve bodies at elevated temps 280 degrees for example ???

Re: UT of cast iron at elevated tempratures
What is the maximum thickness that you need to measure? Generally, the best approach for that test would be to use a high temperature dual element transducers. Cast iron is grainy and produces a lot of scatter noise, but you should be able to measure more than 50 mm/2 inches at 2 MHz with an appropriate instrument.

Some general tips on high temperature ultrasonic testing can be found in the attached application note.

Re: UT of cast iron at elevated tempratures
The casting is about 50mm I have run a 2mhz probe over it when cold and found it effective. I was thinking that would be a good way to go sounds like I am on the right track. Will just have to buy a high temp probe.
Emat probes have also been sugested for this aplication.

This could be a good application for EMAT. Please visit our website for additional info www.innerspec.com

Re: UT of cast iron at elevated tempratures
As an alternative to a dual element high temperature probe (a very good one is the d797 panametrics, but the temperature is critical). I've had excellent results using a 2MHz BB single element with a Vespel delay line with a proper delay.
