Olympus NDT Introduces a Manual Weld Inspection Solution That Includes Conventional UT and Phased Array

Olympus Scientific Solutions Americas (OSSA)241, Waltham, MA, USA

Waltham, MA, April 23, 2008 - Olympus NDT, a world leader in nondestructive testing technologies, introduces a new Manual Weld Inspection Solution that includes conventional ultrasound and phased array ultrasound. This integrated weld inspection solution includes new software for the field-proven OmniScan flaw detector and a new line of phased array probes, the WPS series. The software and new probes have been developed for weld inspectors who would like to integrate phased array technology in their NDT inspections.

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.
