High sensibilty inspection of Ni-base forgings

Hello everybody !
I have a little question about the immersion UT inspection of powder metallurgy forgings (Ni base alloys).
The required sensibility is FBHØ0.2mm at 80%FSH reject with a detection level at FBHØ0.14mm.
- We use calibration block with FBHØ0.4mm in RENE88 or 95.
Actually the settings give :
- FBHØ0.2mm > 80% (that give a FBHØ0.4mm +12dB sensibility)
- FBHØ0.14mm > -6.19dB of 0.2mm (39.2%)
- using a -2dB beam diameter that gives a gate level at 31.13% (-2dB of 39.2%)to assume required detection level.

Can we work with FBHØ0.4mm at 80% FSH ?
With :
- FBHØ0.2mm > 20%
- FBHØ0.4mm > 9.8%
and a gate level of 7.7% with beam diameter -2dB.

What do you think about this second method ?

David

...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.

TOPAZ® 64: Fully Integrated Portable 64 Channel PAUT Instrument with FMC & TFM

Introducing TOPAZ64, the industry’s most intelligent fully integrated, portable 64-channel phased
...
array ultrasound (UT) instrument. TOPAZ64 combines code-compliant phased array UT with the industry’s most advanced full matrix capture (FMC) and total focusing method (TFM) capabilities. Featuring the highest acquisition frequency in its class, high resolution FMC and a 12” multi-touchscreen, users can easily visualize even the smallest flaws. TOPAZ64 can generate a bipolar pulse that provides more acoustic energy versus previous models for punching through thick components. The result is a portable tool that delivers increased inspection coverage, more accurate signals, and the ability to handle all UT inspections in one package. TOPAZ64 is ideal for challenging applications in transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing and power generation.
