TOFD

During measurements, is the probes distance so important?
I have found a formula:distance=2/3*2*c*tan a
c=velocity of longitudinal wave
a=angle of the probe

Is that correct?
In some books it is also said that it is better to do measurements
at two different distances between the probes.
Anyway, I find it very difficult to interpret data from the A scan.
I would appreciate if someone could give me some informations.
Thank you.

Re: TOFD
ls are weak, and TOFD uses (non rectified) Rf-signals, so interpretation of a single TOFD-A-scan makes no sense.
TOFD results of a lot of A-Scans have to be compiled in a B-Scan image.
In this B-Scan image the human eye can easily detect areas with irregularities.
Because of the wide beams used the images do not show the real shape of the irregularity. The pattern has to be interpreted. Only the points of minimum time-of-flight give some idea of the extension of the irregularity.

Kind regards

Conformable wedge transducer

The conformability is obtained with a flexible membrane filled with water between the transducer and
...
the inspected component. The coupling between the membrane and the component requires a small quantity of water or couplant. The conformable wedge combines the acoustic performance of immersion technique with good coupling and low attenuation.

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).
