High Temperature UT on KS Turbine Casing crack.

We have experienced cracks in our Synthesis machine steam inlet nozzles which are low alloy casting. We are monitoring the depth of the cracks by using Krautkramer Gmbh probes (W45B2GV & W60B2GV) only in the straight portion due to the constructional constraints of the probes. These probes were procured to acquire data on intricate and small radius surfaces at elevated temperature service. But installation of large dimension wedges (to avoid the exposure of probe crystal to high temperature) is restricting the utilization practically for straight surfaces only. Subsequently ends monitoring cannot be ensured due to the crack propagation in nozzle curvature at one side and variable thickness portion on other side.

Can anyone please advice us regarding any other high temperature miniature angle probe or alternate non-destructive technique, which can be used to monitor the cracks depth as well as the length.

Product Spotlight

FMC/TFM

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
