The Dryscan 410D - a leading instrument in the field of testing high technology materials

Sonatest Ltd44, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

The Dryscan 410D is the latest special applications digital flaw detector released by Sonatest Ltd. In using the proven method of the Shadow Technique, through transmission, the Dryscan 410D is designed to be the perfect option for the non-destructive testing of high technology materials such as Composites, Hybrids and Honeycomb structures found throughout the Aerospace, Aviation and Marine industries amongst others.

For such advanced materials, often combined with complex geometries, the Dryscan 410D concept is simple to apply and is highly reliable for fault detection, requiring only a minimum of operator training. Using the unique transducers means that no coupling medium is required to contact the transducers to the test material, no material surface preparation is required and many of the geometric considerations that are applied to conventional ultrasonic detection methods can be ignored.

The Dryscan 410D has a unique, tunable filter that can be adjusted for the best signal response for the material under test, which allows significantly increased sensitivity, whilst maintaining low noise, enabling the testing of very attenuative materials.

Ideally suited to materials that have geometrically complicated patterns other applications for the Dryscan 410D include Friction Materials, Plastic and Rubber Composites, GRP/CFRP in many forms, EB Welding, Root Pass Welds, Ceramics, Tyres (Automotive and Aircraft) Wood laminate and Honeycomb sections in aluminium, stainless steel and paper etc.

2008 is a golden year of celebration for Sonatest Ltd, being founded in 1958, this year marks the occasion of its 50th Anniversary, commemorating five decades of pride, commitment and innovative design within the growing industry of Non-Destructive Testing.

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. Find out more about the Sonatest Ltd and our products by visiting www.sonatest.com
