reg- Lcr Probe construction -reg.

Please sir, tell me how to get the Lcr probe for residual stress measurement in carbon steel.
Give the company details or other wise how to prepare the Lcr probe.

By residual stress measurement, do you mean hardness testing?

Lcr probe is used to find the residual stress in weldment. it consists of Ultrasonic probe of one transmitter and one receiver assembly that create critically refracted waves to analysis the residual stressess in weldment.
please give your siggestion

There is an ASTM Standard Practice for measuring ultrasonic velocity in polyethelene tank walls (E-2479). This too uses the Lcr probe in a transmit-receive setup. The concept of applying this to residual stress measurement would be very similar in that you are associating stress changes with velocity changes. The setup is effectively that used for a TOFD inspection. To reduce thermal effects that could hinder absolute time measurement, you could use 2 receivers in tandem with their separation precisely measured. This would give a relative arrival time difference. A baseline measurement would be requried to rate the unstressed state then you could make measurements during applied and then residual stress states (e.g. before, during and after measurents). This said, the probe angles you require could probably be satisfied by standard TOFD probes.

TOPAZ® 64: Fully Integrated Portable 64 Channel PAUT Instrument with FMC & TFM

Introducing TOPAZ64, the industry’s most intelligent fully integrated, portable 64-channel phased
...
array ultrasound (UT) instrument. TOPAZ64 combines code-compliant phased array UT with the industry’s most advanced full matrix capture (FMC) and total focusing method (TFM) capabilities. Featuring the highest acquisition frequency in its class, high resolution FMC and a 12” multi-touchscreen, users can easily visualize even the smallest flaws. TOPAZ64 can generate a bipolar pulse that provides more acoustic energy versus previous models for punching through thick components. The result is a portable tool that delivers increased inspection coverage, more accurate signals, and the ability to handle all UT inspections in one package. TOPAZ64 is ideal for challenging applications in transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing and power generation.

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
