New Sonatest Powerscan 450P achieves Serco Assurance Approval

Sonatest is pleased to announce the launch of the Powerscan 450P digital flaw detector. The 450P is the next in the family of new generation digital flaw detectors from Sonatest Ltd, designed to meet the needs of high penetration and good signal to noise testing requirements.

It has already received approval from Serco Assurance in the UK for rail axle testing and has been accepted by a world leading forging company for critical inspection.

Evolving from the very successful Powerscan 400, this model has been enhanced with a new 450 Volt square wave pulser, improved low frequency filter bands for 0.25MHz transducers and standard AVG & DAC software. Additional benefits are the new user interface, full screen expand mode and a lower PRF setting. The "single shot" acquisition processing enhances screen update speed on low PRF resulting in improved hand scanning response. The unit is housed in a high strength lightweight plastic enclosure and uses lightweight batteries to significantly reduce weight over the Powerscan 400.

Sonatest Ltd is part of the Sonatest NDE Group, the leading independent manufacturer of Ultrasonic Flaw Detectors, X-Ray Equipment, Scanning Systems, Thickness Gauges, Transducers and NDT accessories. www.sonatest.com.
