NEW LIMBO® TOFD ultrasonic transducer

Issue: 2017-08
GB Inspection Systems Ltd is proud to announce their latest offering with the development and introduction of the unique LIMBO® TOFD ultrasonic transducer, Patent pending GB 1709625.6

Unique Features and Benefits of the LIMBO® TOFD

  • Low Profile - Only 10mm high allowing easy access to previously inaccessible areas which are currently untestable using conventional TOFD transducers
  • Reduces inspection cost - No need to implement other possibly disruptive inspection methods such as Radiography
  • High signal to noise - Single cycle responsiveness using 15 MHz
  • Integral Wedge - Unique patent pending design providing convenient use without the need to change wedges and the assurance of the transducer/wedge couplant film.
  • Increases productivity - With conventional TOFD, losing a transducer results in the loss of the use of the dependent wedges and forcing the inspection to stop, LIMBO® TOFD eliminates this risk.

Applications for the LIMBO® TOFD

  • 100% TOFD Inspection on flanges
  • Boiler tube TOFD inspection
  • Restricted areas that have clearance issues of 10mm and above
  • ALL makes of scanner adaptors available upon request
  • Available in LARGER sizes
