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 .
