Olympus NDT Introduces a Manual Weld Inspection Solution That Includes Conventional UT and Phased ArrayOlympus Scientific Solutions Americas (OSSA)231, Waltham, MA, USA
The new OmniScan 2.1 software has a simplified phased array interface and includes an intuitive RayTracing feature that provides a clear visual display of the phased array beams in the weld area and a Weld Overlay feature to simplify data interpretation. The software also includes conventional UT sizing curves (DAC/TCG, ASME, JIS, DGS) and AWS and API code wizards.
Olympus also introduces the new WPS phased array weld inspection probes consisting of the A10, A11, and A12 series. Their ergonomically designed probe housings and wedges have a small footprint to allow inspections close to the weld crown. The DGS Phased Array probe fully meets DGS requirements and performs an inspection sweep from 45º to 70º using one integrated probe/wedge design. The AWS phased array probe creates a nominal 60º shear wave in steel and covers the inspection angles of 45º, 60º and 70º as required by AWS regulations.
