UT probe

Hey, Everyone,

Could you please tell me how to make a UT probe? I want to make one for my project. Thanks.

Re: UT probe
Jack:
you can see the components on the ndt.net lexicon
http://www.ndt.net/article/az/ut_idx.htm
I suggest you purchase a pre-poled element and not try making one yourself. Get one with the leads already mounted so you do not destroy the element as you try soldering on the leads with improper heat input. I do not know if you have a prerequisite for frequency but try starting off with something under 4MHz as the thicker units are more robust. After that it is just figuring out how you want to hold the parts in place and the sort of housing you will use. If your application is rudimentary then no need for a protective front face.
Have fun!
Ed

Re: UT probe
Ed,
Thank you very much for your kind reply.
Could you please help me with two more questions? Where do you recommend for buying a pre-poled element? What kind of backing material for the PZT active element?

Re: UT probe
I recomend a PZT-5 from Morgan Matroc. Try with a 2 Mhz piezoceramic 25 mm diameter. A backing material can be made with epoxy resin with tungsten power. Connect two wires with a solder at the two faces of the ceramic and use a copper tube as a housing, with a BNC connector. Then it is important to make a front layer of a quarter of wavelength and to put an inductance in paralell with the wires. With a flaw detector adjust the inductance and the front layer, in order to obtain the best echo. The layer could be made with epoxig resin (AY103 with the hardering, or similar)
Best regards

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).
