Scan methods

1. Do you need to remove the coating when doing B or C scan?

2. If the coating is not removed how accurate is the result?

3. If there is sand or any other product with a different impedance from the steel, is it possible to detect such based on the different signals coming out?

Thanks

Same as an other.

The material has to be bonded to the steel before there is an impedance change.

: .For questions 1 & 2, the type of instrument that you use is important as not all B or C Scan instruments have the multi-echo option.
If multi-echo is not available, the coating will affect the data but ususally only slightly depending on the type of coating.
We overcame this problem by "Proving Up" any significant indications with a multi-echo A-Scan unit.
This was a concern of our client and the way we all decided to overcome it.
Newer B and C Scan instruments should offer the multi-echofunction however.

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform

The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modal
...
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
