Has anyone had any experience with applying vacuum box inspection to hot surfaces?
Does anyone have a suggestions for sealing gasket materials that would not crushed due to a hyperbaric atmosphere? Closed cell neoprene will crush/squash. I was wondering if a soft silicon rubber would work, or maybe someone has some suggestions.
Applicable for concrete inspection allowing imaging of the internal
structure of objects from
concrete, reinforced concrete, different
stones. The operation applies pulse-echo technique at one-side access
to the object. The instrument is feasible for concrete inspection for
searching conduct ducts, conduits, detection of foreign inclusions,
holes, honeycombing, cracks and other concrete defects. [more]
For highly attenuating materials, the performance of the system is critical. The ultrasonic
sensors, the scanning area and the system settings should be flexibly adapted to the test task and the material.
These high expectations are met with the new and modular testing system SONOAIR. With the world’s first air-coupled phased-array UT inspection system SONOAIR we developed a technology that works with up to 4 transmitter and receiver channels with freely configurable square wave burst transmitters as wells as low noise receiving amplifiers.

The Athena Phased Array system, manufactured by WesDyne NDE Products & Technology, consists of a
phased array acquisition system and PC running IntraSpect software. A PC is used to perform acquisition, analysis and storage of the data. System hardware is capable of operating up to four data sets with any combination of phased array or conventional UT probes. NOW AVAILABLE IN 64-64 CONFIGURATION. [more]
