General NDT Questions

Hallo Everybody,
I have become somewhat concerned about the number of questions being asked about basics of different NDT techniques.
If a person needs to know these things due to his professional position, but does not know them, then he is not suitably qualified for the position that he is holding.

There are many training courses to Level I, II and III throughout the world. Many of the questions asked should have been answerable by at least a Level I, or else a Level II, but to have to know this means that the person appears to be holding a position equivalent to Level III.

Please look at available training course, else but some basic books on the subject.

Re: General NDT Questions
d cannot control forum discussions (besides blatant ads).
Also I cannot avoid that many companies with advertising budgets do not go
to the NDT.net exhibition instead doing their marketing in the forum.

Kind Regards

Rolf

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak

es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
