Your message is a little confusing as you are talking about corrosion mapping and phased array. You may not need a phased array approach to conduct good C-Scan mapping. A lot will depend on what you actually want to C-Scan map in terms of configurations and scanning.

If its in situ corrosion mapping of large areas such as pipes, vessels tanks and pipelines there are an array of systems available all good but with limitations and advantages. Companies such as NDT Automation, Force Institute, GE Inspection the list could be endless, you will find many of them advertising on this site.

I suggest you sit down and write a one page key points specification of what you want to do with the system immediately as essential to have items and then a secondary list of what you might want to do in the future with the system and then send to a list of suppliers to see what they offer in terms of your specific requirements.

: : Hello everybody,
hello,
AGR Equipment is best and user friendly one for your C scan Inspection, also you may have to talk to Phenox to get a good XY scanner

Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
