02:59 Jun-30-2006 Matching Layer Material for Air-Coupling @ 200-500 kHz
I am looking for a matching layer material to air-couple piezo sensors at 300kHz (or 200-500 kHz).
I have been using the MA400A1 Murata sensors so far, but their 1.1cm diameter is too big for my application, and that is why I am building my own. These Muratas have a thick (~1.5mm) white porous material at the front.
Does someone know what type of material it could be?
I have been looking for different filtration membranes (polyetersulfone, cellulose, etc) to use as matching layers, but most of them are too thin to work with (~100 um).
The Research and Applications Development (RAD) group is a newly formed team
within Acuren dedicat
ed to tackling challenging inspection problems. Our focus
is the development of novel, field deployable, advanced inspection techniques
for use in cases where standard NDT methods are ineffective. We don't wait for
new innovations, we engineer them. From concept to commissioning.
The Basque Research centre IK4-IDEKO has developed a state-of-the-art ultrasonic inspection system f
or the train wheel. This system secures a sound condition of train wheels and is thus a significant contribution to rail transport safety. The device was delivered to CAF recently and its use allows the manufacturer to become an approved supplier of rolling stock in Italy, as it meets the demanding homologation standards of this country. \\\\r\\\\n
