Re: seeking information about rail weld testing
Dear Tu Zhankuan,

Guided Ultrasonics Ltd has developed a rail testing unit that works on the principle of using guided waves.

Effectively the rail is used as a waveguide and all parts(head, web and foot)of the rail are tested from the location where the equipment is attached.

The equipment is also able to check weld integrity.

Test range from a test location is in excess of 100m in each direction.

The equipment is totally self contained, battery transducers and all the wave generation, analysis and display equipment.

The unit is linked to a GPS positioning system and has been used to work on an operating line as it can be removed in less than 10 seconds.

Please contact me if you require any further information.

Hello ,
Rail welds in Russian railroads are tested with UT echo method (2,5
MGz, angle beam 50).
Every year we test about 3000000 rail welds and find 1600 defects.
