High Temperature Couplant

Could somebody give some details of couplants for use at high temperatures?

Re: High Temperature Couplant
: Could somebody give some details of couplants for use at high temperatures?

High temperature ultrasonic couplants are typically materials that will remain in a liquid state at highly elevated temperatures (up to 500 C), have good surface wetting properties at high temperature, and will not burn or produce toxic fumes when heated. The compositions are generally considered proprietary by manufacturers. Panametrics is among the many companies that sell them.

Krautkramer has high temperature couplants such as Hi-Tempco (good up to 500 Deg. F/230 Deg. C) or ZGM (good from 400 Deg. F to 1,000 Deg. F).

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
