Minimum Thickness for UT

Dear Friends,
What is the minimum effective thickness for UT of welding in pressure vessel by Angle probe (single crystal) and common portable flaw detector?

Re: Minimum Thickness for UT
Please refer ASME Section V, Article-4 and 5.

Practically I limit myself to 10mm as a minimum thickness and I prefer to use 80 degree shear wave probe along with usual 70 degree probe for 10mm thickness.

AWS D1.1 states 8 mm as a minimum thickness and any weld less than that may be tested using specific test procedure established using sufficient number or mock-up welds of same thickness containing anticipated type of defects at various depths.

Regards,

Re: Minimum Thickness for UT
Dear Mr.Amiri,
From 8mm you can do UT by angle probe with single crystal.

Re: Minimum Thickness for UT
Gents,
UT - Make your equipment and your mind equipped before carrying out UT on particular job.
Quantify yourself whether your equipment & setup is capable to test the minimum requirements. for that u have to use calibration blocks, refernce blocks (with refernce to your job u r going to test), make a 1:1 diagram, equip your mind...
now it is practically possible to go for minimum thicknes and even complex geometry UT inspection.

...
nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
