Illustrations with questions?

There are frequent questions posted that are almost impossible to answer without responders being able to properly visualize the application. It would be extremely helpful, and reduce the number of responses asking for more information, if questions like the one about a very wide beam transducer included sketches and/or photographs with inquiries. As I am typing this I see that it is possible to add a link to an attachment. This feature needs to be used much more.

Re: Illustrations with questions?

Very good point John!
Yes it is possible to show an illustration in the forum on top of your message text, however not so easy to use and you must upload the image to another location. I hope that soon we can offer a simple to use uploader here in the forum.
Until then I suggest to send me the image via email at rd@ndt.net.

Re: Illustrations with questions?
The other point is that those of us who use the mailing list don't see the pictures, so it is essential that anyone posting a comment with illustrations refer to it explicitly. so we can go online.

Otherwise we don't know it is there. as indeed I didn't realize the illustration in the post was here until I went online to reply

Re: Illustrations with questions?

And also the illustration does not appear in follow up messages like mine...

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.
