Waltham, MA, USA, February 16, 2015 — Olympus, a world leader in nondestructive testing technologies, is pleased to announce the introduction of its new Dual Linear Array probe designed to improve the inspection of internally corroded parts such as pipes, tanks, and plates. The new Dual Linear Array probe provides the inspector with several advantages over conventional ultrasonic dual element transducers that are typically used with flaw detectors. This phased array solution improves productivity through features such as larger beam coverage, faster scan speed and C-scan imaging with increased data-point density. The pitch-catch technique used by this new probe offers better near-surface resolution and pit detection in corrosion survey applications than standard phased array pulse-echo, improving probability of detection of critical wall thinning. Its compact, lightweight aluminum housing provides easy handling and operation while carbide wear plates protect the wedges for increased durability.
The Dual Linear Array™ probe adds a new low-cost entry-level inspection capability to the existing Olympus HydroFORM® and RexoFORM corrosion solutions, especially when combined with the OmniScan® SX. When using the probe with an OmniScan phased array instrument, the setup and operation is simple: load the setup file, check the calibration, and then inspect and record the data.
The Dual Linear Array probe adds a new low-cost entry-level inspection capability to the existing Olympus HydroFORM® and RexoFORM corrosion solutions. This new probe is yet another product in Olympus’ complete offerings for corrosion inspection solutions utilizing ultrasound, phased array, eddy current, and remote visual inspection.
