which equipment is needed for doing an experimental setup of EMAT?

Hi,

I am interested on Electromagnetic acoustic transducers. I want to conduct some experimental runs on EMATs application in characterization of pipewalls. could you please inform me whick equipment will be needed exactly?
Regards

It really depends on a number of circumstances; The easiest case would be doing thickness measurements on magnetostrictive oxide coated boiler tubes at room temperature, in which case a simple shear wave EMAT probe plugged into a normal flaw detector would work OK.

For thickness gauging on a more general range of pipes however you would most likely want a dedicated pre-amplifier at least (since EMATs tend to have high loss compared with piezos). Signal averaging also helps in difficult materials such as austenitic stainless steel.

If you want to send waves along the pipe rather than just through the wall, you would also need (as well as more specialised EMAT probes) some sort of pulse generator capable of knocking out the high current/relatively low frequencies required for various wavemodes. That could be either a toneburst or a broadband pulse generator.

Check the link for some of the equipment we provide.

Sincerely,

Mark Potter

SITEX CPSERIES

Teledyne ICM’s CPSERIES has been designed with a view to revolutionizing the handling and perfor
...
mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
