Phoenix offers a range of manual, semi-automated & fully automated scanners, suitable for weld testing of small bore pipes of any material to bigger diameter steel pipes. It can hold number of transducers based on the type of scanners. It can be used for phased array, TOFD, single element. It also features magnetic wheels.
TOFD transducers and wedges generate refracted longitudinal waves in steel. These highly damped longitudinal wave probes provide a high resolution and performance.
Phoenix manufactures a wide range of composite and non-composite TOFD transducers of varying crystal diameters from 2MHz to 15MHz and frequencies ranging from approximately 3.1mm to 20mm. They are for use with the Phoenix range of TOFD wedges.
Flex transducers are thin, compliant ultrasonic probes that can conform to curved surfaces using fingertip pressure. This enables them to be used on non-flat components to provide improved ultrasound transmission compared to standard hard faced transducers. Flex transducers are made of a thin but durable piezo-electric material that is soft enough to bend and can be shaped to suit curved geometry. By using a soft backing layer, the flexibility of the crystal is retained. The Flex series are available as single element and dual element formats.
Standard Flex transducers are 5MHz or 10MHz at sizes of Ø6mm, Ø10mm or Ø20mm diameter. Flex transducers are ideal for inspecting radius areas of composites and accessing complex geometries in metals, such as weld cap areas or castings. They can be used with any standard ultrasonic instrument.
Tritex NDT, UK offers multiple echo ultrasonic thickness gauges which significantly reduce preparation time as they eliminate the need to remove surface coatings. Tritex offers general purpose gauges (MG5500, MG5600 & MG5700) to specialized gauges for GRP (MG5300), for under water (MG3000 & MG4000) to drone gauge (MG6000).
JSR Ultrasonics offers a complete range of high frequency pulser / receivers. The PRC50 is a versatile single channel Pulser Receiver on a half-length PCI card. The DPR300 is a computer controlled ultrasonic pulser / receiver with an extremely low noise receiver. The DPR500 DUAL Pulser / Receiver is the first dual channel, modular instrument consisting of two complete pulser / receivers integrated into one unit.
AIRSCAN is a non-contact air-coupled ultrasonic inspection technique which differs from conventional water-immersion testing, water-jet testing & dry-coupled testing by using air as the acoustic coupling media between the transducers & the part under test. For most practical applications, AIRSCAN is a through-transmission technique, whereby two transducers are used in the process: one transmitter & one receiver. The transducers are located in a fixed relationship to one another with the test piece between them.
RTD Probes are well known in the nuclear industry for inspection of critical weld areas in pipes and pressure vessels. The realm of applications for these transducers is extensive: inspection of coarse grain austenitic steel, location of under cladding cracks, detection and sizing of IGSCC (Intergranular Stress-Corrosion Cracking), automated scanning of pipe and pressure vessels, and continuous high temperature applications.
Ultrasonic probe/transducer is the heart of any ultrasonic test. Inappropriate transducer selection or a poorly manufactured or malfunctioning transducer can severely affect test results regardless of instrumentation capability. We offer a full line of standard and special transducers.
We manufacture full range of general purpose probes like straight beam, angle beam and TR probes. These probes are available in 2 or 4 MHz and the customers can choose from either Lemo or BNC female connectors on the probe side.
We offer a complete line of high resolution; highly damped delay line probes both with fixed and removable delays. These delay line transducers are recommended for inspection of thin materials, near surface flaw detection and thickness gauging of thin materials. These transducers are also available with high temperature options.
We offer immersion transducers that are specifically designed to operate in an immersion tank or with bubbler/squirter systems. They are usually manufactured with UHF waterproof connectors and can be designed with flat or focused lenses. All immersion transducers are offered in high resolution, general purpose and high sensitivity.
We offer full range of ultrasonic testing cables. These cables are manufactured with reinforced junctions between the cable & the connector. Cables are available in single, dual with Lemo, Mini Lemo, BNC, Microdot or Subvis connector. We can also offer customized cable depending upon your needs or application.
High temperature probes allow more rapid and cost effective testing by removing the need to cool surfaces in advance. The Phoenix high temperature range has a variety of transducers designed to perform reliably on surfaces at temperatures from 80˚C to 200˚ C
We offer a complete range of standard & custom ultrasonic reference standards (also referred to as test blocks or calibration blocks). All the reference standards are made from metal stocks that have been ultrasonically inspected prior to fabrication.
