multielement acoustic unit with embedded information cable

Scanning of the butt weld joint is performed by the inspector moving the mechanical acoustic unit along the weld joint axis. On each millimeter of weld joint there is simultaneous scanning of the joint crosssection on both sides. The unit operates in 16-stroke mode. Each stroke implements the specifi ed inspection scheme.

On each millimeter the flaw detector records pulse heights in all strokes which are then transferred to computer and processed according to specifi ed algorithm. Time gate system and microprocessing of signals received from the defect by each transducer allows identifi cation of the defect type (volumetric, planar, planarvolumetric) according to established algorithms and its characterization on each millimeter. In the course of inspection the results are presented on computer display
and on underwater remote display.



Power and computer link unit

If necessary the inspection results can be viewed after inspection on computer and printed out on printer connected to computer. Quality of the whole weld joint is evaluated based on inspection results according to regulatory documents.
