steel to rubber adhesive bond test

2" rubber to steel bond testing is possible using conventional
A-scan ultrasonic equipment?
is it possible using any particular equipment? if yes whichone?
is it possible using any other NDT method?

Dear Manjeev,
To test with Ultrasonics, you need to test from the Steel side.
Other techniques that can evaluate rubber to steel bonding are Impedance Evaluation, by analysing the Eigen Frequencies of the bonded component.
I assume that you are talking here about testing in Mass Production. If so, my company sells Quasar Resonant Inspection equipment that can analyse these Eigen Frequencies.
Please see our web site at www.hands-ndt.co.uk.
With my best regards,

Godfrey Hands

Dear Manjeev,

My company manufactures an inexpensive add-on, front-end signal processing module that interfaces with any UT flaw detector, analog or digital, and either boosts weak signals or suppresses noise. It is called the Noise Suppressor II and has been used successfully in your application, testing from the rubber side, with low frequency UT transducers. Information can be found at www.SLX-inc.com .

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).

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
