The equipment or instrument about MT and UT of rail wheel set and axles

Dear sirs ,
I am writing a report guiding the purchase of MT and UT equipment or instrument of rail wheel set and axles for Chinese Ministry of Railway.Now i need some technical information about the MT and UT equipment including the manufactory,price,inspecting principle and sensitivity.
It will be very kind if you provid some information or suggestions.
Best regards!

Re: The equipment or instrument about MT and UT of rail wheel set and axles
Dear Sir:

Customers in Korea have been using our ultrasonic equipment to examine railcar wheels. Is this one of your applications? They were using EMATs which are low efficieny transducers and require powerful pulsers. If this is of interest to you, please visit our website www.RitecInc.com

Best Regards,
Mark McKenna

Dear Sir,

Could you introduce the application of the EMATs in examining the railcar wheel in Korea?

Best regards!

Re: The equipment or instrument about MT and UT of rail wheel set and axles
Dear Mr Tu,

Another technique approved for use on axles and wheelsets is ACFM. This is used by Bombardier in the UK for detecting and sizing surface defects, instead of MT.
Bombardier also use ACFM in a depot in Shanghai. If you are interested in this technique, I can send you some information and put you in touch with a contact at Bombardier.

Best Regards,
Martin Lugg

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
