Delay line

I want a delay line (Max.200 celsius degree), which is about 3" long. But I am not sure If I can get signal because the delay line is too long.
Who can recommend a delay line, which is about 3" long and can get good signal.

What type of test are you trying to do with it?

In general, it is certainly possible to make long, high temperature delay lines for use with large diameter, low frequency transducers, but not for high frequency, small diameter transducers. That is because you must maintain a length-to-diamter ratio that does not exceed 5:1, preferably 3:1, to avoid excessive sidewall mode conversion effects. Also, the polymers usually used for high temperature delay lines are too attenuating for higher frequencies, although they work fine at lower frequencies (under 5 MHz).

If you can let us know more about your application, we may be able to supply an appropriate transducer and delay line.

.

We've had quite good results in a similar application (except a LOT hotter) with fused silica - works OK up to around 10-15 MHz, but its physically a difficult material to work with. We dont have any regular products however.

Lyft™: Pulsed Eddy Current Reinvented

PEC Reinvented—CUI Programs Redefined Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is possibly the greatest u
...
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?

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).
