NDT of Glass

Could anyone suggest some NDT techniques for the evaluation of the quality of glass, e.g. light transmittance performance data, colour, flatness, etc.

Hi Ifan,

Panametrics has several new products that would be suitable for Single plane and Multilayer glass applications.

Please feel free to contact Steve Labreck in our Panametrics Waltham office; NDT@panametrics.com

Please also take a look at our glass applications page:

Best Regards,

You may also try the folks at BYK Gardner (and they seem to like to pronounce the acronym 'bik'!). Their website is here:
http://www.bykgardner.com/html/byk/index.html

Beyond the great thickness gages that Panametrics certainly knows how to use, you can find items at BYK that represent an obscure corner of NDT, at least for me. Stuff like gloss measurement, haze, true color, etc., some of which appears to be on-sale demos.

Good luck.

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
