Coarse grain probes


Generally speaking coarse grained material
is only to be tested using selected special
probes because the noise caused by the
grain structure in most cases reaches the
same indication amplitude as the echoes
from small reectors. There are therefore a
number of probes available, particularly for
testing austenitic welds, which, depending
on the test specimen, produce more or less
satisfactory results.

We have engaged ourselves very intensely


with this problem and have examined a
large range of test material using different focussed single crystal probes and
TR probes and whereby we were strongly
supported by the manufacturers of austenitic materials. The examination resulted in the production of probes which, in
our experience, produce, on the average,
the best results.

With the examinations the probes were


primarily evaluated with regards to
having as large a signal to noise ratio as
possible i.e. the indications from reectors should extend as far as possible
above the grain noise.
All the probes generate longitudinal
waves.
