ROTATINg SCANNER PROBES

Scanner probes are eddy current probes used in combination with an automated rotator, which is attached to an eddy current instrument. High speed testing of bolt holes, counter bores, the hole perimeter or around fasteners heads are a typical application for these types of probes. Several designs and materials are possible depending on the application the probes are used in. EC/NDT has many different designs available for all rotating guns on the market. If a standard design does not fit your application we will manufacture a probe according to your specifications/requirements.

Rotating Scanner Bolt Hole Probes

The New Roller Probe Array

MAUSV Applications
Ultrasonic Arrays
Ultrasonic arrays have created a quantum leap in capabilities for aerospace structure inspection. In particular linear arrays used to duplicate longitudinal and shear-wave single sensors provide equivalent detection sensitivity with a tremendous increase in inspection rates. In addition, the MAUS V system configurations frequently use multiple arrays to cover multiple surfaces on a complex composite part during a single pass inspection. This multiple array capability is particularly useful when full inspection of all areas in a complex part is required.

Ultrasonic Pulse Echo

Ultrasonic arrays used in the pulse-echo mode allow for the detection of delaminations, voids, porosity, and foreign objects in composite laminates. This technique applies to the wide range of construction methods and materials used in the aerospace industry. MAUS V scanners include positioning mechanisms to align the ultrasonic arrays on complex part surfaces with minimal distortion to the ultrasonic signals. Data from multiple arrays combined in the data display providing a full C-scan image of the part.

Thru-Transmission

In some constructions a more appropriate inspection method is ultrasonic thrutransmission. In these applications two arrays are positioned on opposite sides of the structure. Sound is transmitted from an array through the part to the second array. The C-scan map indicates the locations where the sound was attenuated as it was transmitted through the part. When additional surfaces are inspected multiple arrays are used to provide the thru-transmission data for all surfaces.

Single Point Sensors

The MAUS V scanners may be configured with many traditional NDT inspection sensors including Resonance, Ultrasonic, Mechanical Impedance, Pitch-catch, Eddy Current and Magneto-Resistive sensors. A sensor type is selected based upon the specific inspection needs of each customer. Several different types of sensors provide a menu of options when a MAUS V system is used to inspect many types of structures including metallic and/or composite materials. Frequently, two different sensor/inspection types are used to fully interrogate a single structure at the same time.

Bond Testing

Continuous wave sensors are used to detect bond line voids in adhesively bonded structures. These sensors include resonance, MIA, and Pitch-catch methods. The MAUS V system displays the impedance changes that occur in the sensor signals as the sensors are loaded by the local area of the structure. Well bonded areas are distinguished from voids by these changes in the sensor signals. However, bond strength is typically not predicted by these changes.

Crack or Corrosion Detection

Corrosion detection programs often center on visual inspection of the inner and outer surface of the fulage skin. Unfortunately, the ability to detect corrosion located between skin layers is limited in a visual inspection. MAUS V eddy current C-scans easily identify hidden corrosion in these structures. Inspection programs have beenperformed since 1997 to detect hidden corrosion under doubled surfaces in large commercial and military aircraft. Cracks emanating from fastener holes are easily repaired if they are detected when the cracks are still quite small The MAUS V eddy current scanner is a versatile tool that enables rapid inspection of many fastener holes without fastener removal.

FlawInspecta

by Diagnostic Sonar Ltd.

HIgH-SPEED LOW-COST ULTRASONIC INSPECTION AND IMAgINg


The FlawInspecta system is designed to address requirements for rapid, low-cost, ultrasonic phased array inspection. The real-time data acquisition and processing technology used for B and C-scan imaging means that the full-waveform can be acquired without compromising inspection speed. The FlawInspecta system is capable of a pulse rate of 30kHz, corresponding to a scan rate of 10 in./second or 19.3 sq. ft./minute with a 128-element array. At the heart of the system is Diagnostic Sonars FIRE-technology for real-time full-waveform acquisition and B-scan imaging. A position sensor attachment to the array extends this capability to C-scans for mapping of structures. The inspection results can be transferred into reports or into analysis packages such as ANDSCAN. This technology can now also be used directly with the ANDSCAN system to provide seamless full waveform coverage of large areas along with a comprehensive post-processing and analysis capability.

Key Features
PC Specifications Imaging Digital Flaw Detector Position Sensor Standard Array Interface Array Interface Options

TOF C-scan image

AMP C-scan image

Combined image

Operation Modes A-scan: Operaration and display is similar to a standard flaw detector. Each individual beam of the array can be displayed as an A-scan. Real-time B-scans: Rates suitable for interactive fast search (typically over 100Hz). Ideal for inspecting complex cross sections. Real-time C-scans: A C-scan map of sub-surface structures is made by recording the value of a parameter (such as peak echo or time-of-flight) as an image pixel for each point on the surface. An array can be translated across the surface, at a right-angle to the electronic scan, to provide a very rapid C-scan map. The C-scan resolution and maximum sweep speed are dependent on the array type and the material properties. However, a typical set-up of a 64 mm long array producing simultaneous C-scan images (peak amplitude and time-of-flight) with 1mm x 1mm pixel resolution can be translated at around 110mm/s. Thus a 1m long x 64mm wide swathe can be acquired in less than 10 seconds. Freeze mode: Images can be saved in standard formats (BMP, TIFF, JPEG and PNG) along with the acquisition set-up for archiving or for integrating into reports. The C-scan data can also be reviewed as an interactive 3D profile plot that can also be exported in JPEG or PNG format. Images can be recalled for reviewing and/or performing follow-on measurements. Full-waveform data can be saved in the industry standard AVI format for easy review in most media players.

Diagnostic Sonar Ltd.

Seamless large area mapping: The FIRE-technology that provides the capability for real-time B-scan imaging can now be used to provide rapid full-waveform acquisition over large areas using the new ANDSCAN C-scan system. Full Raw Data (FRD) Mode: This is a novel real-time imaging mode where the array data is acquired and processed in a manner analogous to pulse-echo holography. As a result, the images have dynamic focus on transmit as well as receive for improved clarity. It also means that many other parameters - such as beam steer, focusing, aperture size and shading on both transmit and receive can all be adjusted on captured/stored data. Non-linear beam forming techniques can also be used on the FRD data to provide further enhancements to the image resolution.

key Uses Aerospace ANDSCAN is widely used in civil and military aerospace for scanning areas of composite and metalic stuctures using conventional ultrasonic, eddy-current and acoustic flaw detectors. Whilst the Large-Area Grid capability allows coverage of large structures such as wings, the high resolution makes characterization and sizing of defects highly accurate. Software tools provide the semi-automated measurement of a range of defect parameters. Motor Sports

Acoustic, or low-frequency vibration methods are commonly used alongside ultrasound to detect and characterize defects in high-performance composite sandwich structures. More than six of the top Formula One racing teams own ANDSCAN systems for regular inspection of such structures.

Offshore, Oil & Gas Large areas of the external surface of pipes are regularly scanned to map the wall thickness, both to detect gross thinning and also to determine the remaining life of the pipe. Cylindrical curvature correction allows the unwrapping of the pipe surface onto the display, the Large-Area Grid software can automatically switch scans to provide an overall image.

Product Capability

MAUSV ANDSCAN FlawInspecta Designed to your specifications for use with existing systems

The VACRS (Variable Automatic Couplant and Recovery System) developed by NDT Solutions Inc. is revolutionizing the way large area ultrasonic inspections are completed. Our team at NDTS has developed a light weight couplant, delivery and recovery system (VACRS) which makes it possible to accomplish a C-scan with large ultrasonic arrays without the large water mess/hazard. This portable easy to use design provides a copious amount of water to couple the transducer to the part, recovers the water and leaves the inspection surface only slightly damp. The beauty of this system is its compact transducer holder design which channels the water to the transducer contact areas, contains the water, then vacuums away the residual water which is then recycled for use again. There are several different VACRS system designs available to meet your specific needs and requirements including 12 and 24 VDC systems. In a recent trial on an aircraft we used the VACRS system along with the MAUSV C-scan system and a 3.2 64 element ultrasonic array. We found the VACRS system helped cut the inspection time by fifty percent (50%) when compared to the same method without the VACRS. The VACRS can also be used with multi-channel systems as well as in Thru-transmission (TTU) applications. We believe that once you see the system in action you will want to incorporate it into your own inspection processes. We are excited about this new solution and the possibilities it provides for our customers and the future of NDT. If you are interested in a demonstration or would like to see a video of the system in action please contact us to schedule a demonstration.

A Pioneer of Revolutionary Remote Field Eddy Current

Aircraft Structure Crack Detection Using Remote Field Eddy Current (RFEC) Technique
Aircraft NDI challenges often involve detecting cracks that are deeply hidden under the thick and multiple layer aircraft structures. Conventional NDI technologies are now reaching their respective limitations in detecting these cracks effectively and reliability. Such limitations include the insufficient depth penetration into the lower layer cracks and the inability to inspect through the gap in between layers effectively for the hand held systems. The limitations also include the extreme high cost, portability and practicality for other high end permanently mounted systems.

Fg RFEC Technique versus EC Techniques (ECT)


ECT Impedance Z is proportional to total flux, . In a reflection probe induced voltage V is proportional to , too. A flaw causes very limited change in , since also in Z or V. The change in caused by a deeply hidden flaw may be less than 0.001% - 0.0001%. Different approaches have been used to cancel/compensate the normal signal and separate out the flaw signal. However, a perfect separation of the two signals is practically impossible. Signal level is high, but flaw-induced signal variations are low. The ratio of flaw signal to normal-signal is low. This limits the gain value can be used in an instrument.

Fg RFEC V is proportional to a portion of the flux, RF, that has passed through the test object twice and represents the local condition of the object between the driver and receiver. The presence of a defect results in a large change in RF, and also in V. The change in phase of RF has a linear relation with the wall thickness. Signal level is low, but flaw-signal/normalsignal ratio is high. This allows higher gain for a given flaw signal.

Mini Potted Angle Beam Transducer


Mini Potted Angle Beam Transducerers are very small and permit testing in highly confined areas, on small parts, and contoured surfaces and simplify access between closely-spaced fasteners. Having a narrow, restricted sound beam also facilitates more precise evaluation and mapping of flaws. The Mini Angle Beam Transducer features an element and wedge which are permanently mounted in a compact aluminum case with the exclusive OPTI-GRIP surface for ease of handling.

Quick Change Angle Beam Transducer


Quick Change Angle Beam Transducers and Wedges are ideally suited for use where access is limited, on relatevely thin materials, or for more precise flaw location and evaluation. The quick change feature is convenient when it is necessary to use different tansducer frequencies and/or refracted angle wedges during an inspection or evaluation. The Quick Change Transducer features smaller size circular elements, higher frequencies and a one-quarter wave impedance matching epoxy face. The wear resistant transducer label is also frequency color coded for easy identification. Quick Change models are available with Microdot connectors only.

Delay Line Contact Transducers


Delay Line Contact Transducers have primary applications in precision thickness gaging and the near-surface, high-resolution flaw detection. Relatively smooth surfaces and fairly thin test objects are generally required for best results. Protected Element Models are fitted with a threaded retaining wing, which retains any of the three protective faces in intimate contact with the transducer element. One type of protective face is a somewhat pliable polymeric membrane used to assist coupling to rough or uneven surfaces. The wear-cap face is a short, firm polymeric delay line that can be replaced after use on rough, abrasive surfaces, or where a contoured face is needed. A one-inch long heat-resistant delay line provides protection for the element in high temperature applications (intermittent use up to 600F.) All are readily interchangeable.
