Need a flaw detector for NDT inspection of ship propeller

Hi all,

Our company manufacture ship propellers. Propellers ard made from Cu alloy by die casting. Thickness of wing propeller from 3cm to 20 cm. We want to inspection flaws such as porosity. We have use Ultasonic flaw detector to inspection but it was so slow. UT method only inspection with less than 4cm areas only.

We are looking to buy a Flaw detector can detect flaws such above application with high speed inspection.

Please kindly show me which method is suitable with our application?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon

Why don't you try X-Ray?

If the geometry is suitable I suggest x-ray imaging with using digital flat panel. Exposuring time is short and you can analyse the image directly from computer screen.

X-ray Tomography can be good but depending on the level of information you require the time can vary from few mins to few hours.
I suggest you should look at the following links for further info
1. Chapter4 of the report which u can download from
http://www.geocities.com/rizwan_saeed/Abstract.html

just scroll to the bottom of the page to get a link to report.

Radiography would be your best bet, but shooting through 20cm of Cu will require at least a 2 Mev apparatus or a Co source. This will involve, besides the cost of new equipment, the moving the part to a highly shielded/isolated location.

The good news is that using the mentioned digital flat panels, or computed radiography plates, should give you adequate sensitivity at relatively short exposure time, in comparison to film, and at a fraction of the cost.
