A New Corrosion Module Software Available with the EPOCH 600 Ultrasonic Flaw Detector Provides Simplified Operation in Corrosion Inspection Applications.

Olympus Scientific Solutions Americas (OSSA)230, Waltham, MA, USA

September 3, 2013 (Waltham, MA, USA) -- Olympus, a world leader in nondestructive testing technologies, is pleased to introduce the new Corrosion Module software that is now available with the portable EPOCH 600 Ultrasonic Flaw Detector. The Corrosion Module is designed for the growing population of inspectors that require both flaw detection and corrosion measurement solutions as standard application offerings. This optional software provides simplified instrument operation for basic corrosion applications, requiring less set up time and more efficient data collection.

The EPOCH 600 Corrosion Module leverages many of the industry-leading corrosion inspection features revolutionized by dedicated corrosion thickness gages, such as the Olympus 38DL PLUS, while maintaining a close connection to standard flaw detector operation. This combination significantly lessens the requirement for operator training and enhances the versatility of the already popular EPOCH 600 instrument.

Main features of the Corrosion Module include automatic ultrasonic setups based on transducer selection, Automatic Gain Control (AGC), Olympus thickness gage measurement algorithm, V-Path correction, and transducer wear compensation using an automatic zero function (“Do Zero”). The Corrosion Module also features corrosion-style data logger file types, a color-coded Grid View, and a timed B-scan view for fast data collection and consolidated reporting of areas of interest.

With the addition of the Corrosion Module software, the EPOCH 600 now combines industry-leading conventional ultrasonic flaw detection capabilities with simple-to-use thickness measurements to determine metal wall loss due to corrosion or erosion. This combination makes the successful EPOCH 600 a powerful and cost-effective flaw detector for a large variety of nondestructive testing applications.
