ultrasonic set up

Dear friends
I plan to prepare a ultrasonic set up for laboratory testing of Wood based materials.So I need a shematic diagram of the set up with detail.thanks for your attention in advance.

Dear Kazemi,
Before you prepare your ultrasonic setup have you determined what you are trying to detect in the wood based materials? Sound velocity changes, voids or imperfections, delamination of bonding, rotting or decay.
What mode of sound propagation will you be using?
What type of samples will you be testing?
At a later date will this setup be transferred into the industry for field use?

Incidently once you have clarified these points you will be halfway to planning your own ultrasonic set up.

Regards

Neil Burleigh

Re: ultrasonic set up
Dear Kazemi,
you may have same info in the address http://www.ipef.br/publicacoes/scientia/nr63/cap20.pdf, and also with the following University people that have some experience with:
fabiana@sc.usp.br and mcarreir@sc.usp.br.
Hope this help.
Regards,
Manfred

Re: ultrasonic set up
Dear Kazemi
In order to plan your ultrasonic evaluation equipment, surely you need to know what the wood density, water content, surface feature and the equipment and method or technique you intend to use. Evaluate your needs, what is required of the test and the type and presentation of the data before the schematic.

Re: ultrasonic set up
Dear Kazemi
It's difficult to give you a straight answer, which the other writers allready mentioned.

The frequencies used are normally from 1 MHz for thin samples and down to 50 kHz for very thick samples.
The most common set-up is to use pulsed transmission method due the high attenuation (could be 400dB/m). The frequency choice is also depending in which direction your sending you sound, wood has different velocity and attenuation in different direction.
If it's the material properties you are interested in you need transducers for both longitudinal and shear waves.
Then inspection wood the normally is to measure the transit time.
A conventional UT equipment for steel could work down to around 0.25-1.0 MHz depending on freq.filter, but output voltage is low 200-300V.
Equipment suited for concrete is more useful, 24-1000 kHz, output voltage is 250-1200V.
You need
a pulser, to generate the sound wave
a timer, to measure the transit time
pulser and timer is usually one part.
two transducers, a pair, for each frequency
You may need an oscilloscope if you would like to study the puls shape and amplitude.

Best Regards
Johan

Product Spotlight

MUSE Mobile Ultrasonic Equipment

The MUSE, a portable ultrasonic imaging system, was developed for in-field inspections of light-weig
...
ht structures. The MUSE consists of a motor-driven manipulator, a water circulation system for the acoustic coupling and a portable ultrasonic flaw detector (USPC 3010). The MUSE provides images of internal defects (A-, B-,C- and D-scan).

SITEX CPSERIES

Teledyne ICM’s CPSERIES has been designed with a view to revolutionizing the handling and perfor
...
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).

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

TESTD-PT SYSTEM

Pulse thermography is a non-contact test method that is ideal for the characterization of thin fil
...
ms and coatings or the detection of defects. With a remarquable short test time and a high detection sensitivity, the Telops TESTD-PT is the perfect tool for non- destructive testing. With such high frame rates, it is even possible to investigate highly conductive or diffusive materials.
