Difficulties on inspection 'D' Category Nozzle Joints by ToFD

Dear All,

I have been doing ToFD since last 2 years and mainly i have been inspecting the pressure vessels, reactors, etc. well my one problem is in inspecting 'd' categories of the self reinforced nozzles well in this types of nozzles we have very small space on the inner side of the weld so we have to do offset scanning with different angles, well now the problem is when we are scanning this nozzles both the probes are having different length of arc movement and because of that there are allongations of the indications for example if the deffect is of actual size of 3 mm and it will show up as around 4 to 5 mm well i have tried too many things but i couldnt get the answer of my solutions please if somebody can help me in this matter

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
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
