Automatic UT system for tee frames

We are one of the largest manufacturers of pressure vessels and equipments in the world and we are looking for an automatic ultrasonic system with data recirding facility to scan TEE type fillet joints. We place TEE frames in some of our vessels and need a reliable system to scan those joints with faster speed.

Re: Automatic UT system for tee frames
Yes there are UT systems that will inspect T joints and encode the inspection. A very precise procedure is required and needs to be proven to the customer. There are many different UT systems that will enable the technician to image many complex geometry parts. Due to access restrictions you may need a system that will allow manual encoding of the area of interest and software that will allow the implementation of different geometries. Note: I am talking about transducers fitted with encoding devices not doing timed inspections. I do not like to use timed inspections as they do not allow for precise length measurements. A timed inspection will either shrink or grow an indication. A timed inspection method can be used if only for screening purposes. If you would like any further information as to what types of sytems allow this, please contact me for more information.
