About the detecting depth using UT technique for austenitic stainless steel and nickel base alloy

What is the maximum detecting depth? For example,
a 400mm thick plate, material as Incoloy 800H.

Your question is not clear. Did you mean the feasibility of getting a back wall echo from a 400 mm thick Incoloy 800H plate?

If that is what you meant, it is possible using the right probe and instrument combination.

Or are you interested in detecting a discontinuity in such a plate? If this is what you meant, the size of a discontinuity that can be detected depends on several factors including the surface condition, grain size etc. Planar indications of a smaller diameter can be detected compared to spherical / round indications but there can be exceptions too! Since you are discussing a plate, it is expected that both the surfaces are accessible and thus the metal path that needs to be detected is a little more than half the thickness, thus about 250 mm in your case.

If you clarify the question / application, better answers will come.

Regards

You could always take a piece of scrap, create a "defect" like that you must find, then try to find it. If you do that and find the defect you have qualified your procedure.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
