PA UT (PAUT): SRUT - Short Range Guided Wave Inspection with use of Linear Array Probes

Thanks to the very powerful PA Pulser Receiver electronics allowing the full aperture emitting and receiving of ultrasonic signals ISONIC 3510, ISONIC 2010, and ISONIC 2009 UPA Scope instruments may be used for the Short Range Guided Wave (SRUT) inspection and corrosion screening in the plates, pipe walls under insulation, above pipe supports, and in the air-to-soil interface areas, steel poles in the riveted lap joints and in the the air-to-soil interface areas, and the like with use of the linear array probes

The CB-Scan image representing the unfolded top view of the Region of Interest (ROI) may be obtained through the line scanning and data recording either time based or encoded with use of the MULTI A-SCAN inspection SW package featured with:
  • Ability of using the Linear Array, Dual Linear Array, Matrix Array and other PA probes
  • Intuitive Multi A-Scan Screen Composing out of the ISONIC PA Pulser Receiver files created in the corresponding inspection application
  • Strip Chart Recording and "On-the-fly" Imaging of:
    • Amplitude / TOF Graph Strips
    • B-Scan / CB-Scan Strips
  • DAC / TCG Data / B-Scan / CB-Scan Image Normalization
  • 100% Raw Data Capturing
  • Comprehensive Postrpocessing Toolkit Including:
    • Play back and evaluation of the A-Scans captured during the inspection
    • Converting strips from Amplitude / TOF Graph to B-Scan and vice versa
    • Off-Line Gain Manipulation (per strip)
    • Off-Line DAC Normalization of the B-Scan / CB-Scan strips / DAC Evaluation
    • Numerous Filtering / Reject Options ( by Gate / By Amplitude / dB-to-DAC / etc )
    • Defects Sizing
    • Creation of Defect List and Storing it Into a Separate File
    • Automatic creating of inspection reports - hard copy / PDF File
