.AgfaNDT/Krautkramer offers a model SPG2 Rail Inspection Trolley that incorporates a USM Series portable ultrasonic flaw detector along with two angle beam probes and a dual element probe for scanning of rails. The model USN 50L portable flaw detector is also used in conjuction with wheel probes by large Rail Inspection Service companies in the U.S.

Re: Inspection of rails
: Please inform us also about in-service ultrasonic inspection of rails (techniques and equipment).

Guided Ultrasonics (Rail) is a Subsidiary of Guided Ultrasonics Ltd. and is presently testing a pre production unit for testing rails.

This new system of testing is a development from the very successful Wavemaker pipe screening system which uses lamb waves to allow long range ultrasonic testing. The entire rail is screened over many tens of metres in each direction from a single location.

Testing rails is more complex than pipe testing mainly because of the geometry so all aspects of the equipment have had to be specifically designed for this application.

The indications are that long distances of rail will be able to be tested from one location with sensitivity that will identify the types of defect required for safe operation including checks on the welds.

Re: Inspection of rails
Dear Gordon,
This may not be much help, but I'm sure AEAT (Atomic Energy Authority Technology) are involved in NDT of rails (don't know if its ultrasonic though), and they're based out at Cullum, Oxfordshire. Sorry I've got no links. Good Luck!

Re: Inspection of rails
Where are you?
There are people inspecting rails all over the world.
Most places its carried out by the Rail operators, or at least by contractors working for them.

Re: Inspection of rails
One of my freinds forwarded me this note. We at Sperry test rails worldwide. With more than 70 years of experience in the rail testing, we offers an excellent source for any jobs in the rail testing. With our state-of-art technology, we can test rails using moving vehicles at speed ranging from 17 MPH to 30 MPH or even higher.

Let me know what you are looking for. We have a group of special testing staffs that test rails using a portable units.

Thanks
Surendra
