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 .

Conformable wedge transducer

The conformability is obtained with a flexible membrane filled with water between the transducer and
...
the inspected component. The coupling between the membrane and the component requires a small quantity of water or couplant. The conformable wedge combines the acoustic performance of immersion technique with good coupling and low attenuation.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
