a. B-scans
b. through testing
c. resonance thickness testing
d. flaw detection

Q2 Touching the reflection point of a normally incident transverse wave with an oily finger will
a. reduce signal by about 6dB
b. increase the signal by about 2dB
c. reduce the signal by about 2dB
d. have no effect on the signal

Q3 The result of increasing the temp from 10deg C to 30 deg C is
a. decrease the refracted angle
b. decrease the acoustic velocity
c. increase sensitivity
d. all of the above

Q4 The unit of sound (or electrical energy) gain or attenuation , dB is
a. a ratio of voltages or intencities
b. one tenth of a bell
c. both a and b

Q5 Non contact ultrasonic coupling , ie coupling across an air gap has its advantage in
a. testing at elevated temperatures is possible
b. avoiding trasducer wear on rough surfaces
c. avoiding fluid contamination of test piece
d. all of the above

Q6 An advantage of using ut surface waves over other wave modes is
a. the ease of focusing the beam
b. test piece contours are followed without loss of due to direction changes
c. good sensitivity to subsurface defects
d. none of the above

Ultrasonic Squirter/Gantry System

TecScan’s NDT Ultrasonic Gantry Systems are industrial Squirter scanners designed for non-destru
ctive quality testing and raster scanning of large structures and parts. The Gantry Systems are usually composed of an Industrial Mechanical Scanner and a Control Room with System Workstation.


Very Powerful Superior Performance Extremely Portable Smart Phased Array Ultrasonic Flaw Detector an
d Recorder with 2 Conventional UT and TOFD Channels uniquely combines PA, single- and multi-channel conventional UT, and TOFD modalities providing 100% raw data recording and imaging. Suitable for all kinds of every-day ultrasonic inspections

Eddy Current inspection : RotoETscan Rotating Head

The rotating head RotoETscan detects the presence of longitudinal surface or sub surface defects a
t high speed. The rotating head is often installed directly on the production line. It is generally dedicated to the control of long products such as tubes, bars and wires, made of ferrous or non-ferrous material. It can also be used for inspection of small parts (billets).
