True To Geometry Coverage and Imaging True-to-Geometry Coverage and Imaging is the unique proprietary technology of Sonotron NDT, which is explained below based on an example related to the inspection of longitudinal weld.
True-to-Geometry Coverage and Imaging Technology is based on the following principles: the actual outer shape and dimensions of the material are entered into the instrument along with the important internal structure particulars and represented on the screen as the dimensioned drawing (sketch)
the image guided ultrasonic beam-tracing is performed by an operator over the said drawing through varying probe position on the scanning surface and manipulating beam coverage parameters virtually until the optimal scan plan is achieved
the needful calibration of ultrasonic PA pulser receiver and the correction settings corresponding to the designed scan plan are performed then with use of the appropriate calibration blocks
at last the sequence of focal laws providing the desired ultrasonic coverage of the material at the given placement of PA probe is formed; every focal law is characterized by the individually adjusted incidence angle, time base, gain, and DAC
the bulks of A-Scans representing every implemented focal law from the plurality defined by the scan plan are pushed into the focal law memory of the instrument and the image is composed in real time indicating the reflectors in their actual positions independently on the combination of beams providing their detection
The main advantage of the True To Geometry Coverage and Imaging vs regular sectorial / linear scan coverage is the extremely simple and quick interpretation of the results obtained by the ultrasonic PA flaw detector
MULTIGROUP The examples below illustrate the ability of ISONIC 3510 to implement several scanning strategies simultaneously with use of the same PA probe. The limit of 5 scanning strategies per probe is determined not by the features of the instrument's PA modality electronics but by the physicak screen size allowing clear observation of the images
Example 1: Combining of the compression wave linear scan and gated sectorial scan
Example 2: Combining of the true-to-geometry sectorial scan with true-to-geometry linear scan and regular sectorial scan while inspecting a butt weld
ISONIC DUET Technology
ISONIC 3510 instruments allow implementing of the highly demanded DUET and DUET_M applications related to the inspection of butt / circumferential / longitudinal welds from both sides simultaneously with use of a pair of PA probes carrying up to 16 elements each. Use of 2 probes carrying more than 16 elements (up to 32) each is also possible provided the corresponding extension terminals are involved There is no external splitter required for the connecting of 2 PA probes to ISONIC 3510 The welds inspected with use of the ISONIC DUET Technology may have either symmetrical or asymmetrical bevel
True to geometry coverage and imaging of the weld & HAZ volume is provided for each PA probe separately and in the overlap; each PA probe may implement a number of inosnifications simultaneously in the MULTIGROUP mode For the first time ever the complimentary TOFD inspection with forming of up to 4 separate shots (depending on the material thickness) may be performed out of the same pair of PA probes:
This novel way of implementing TOFD shots extremely simplifies and lightens the structure of the scanning frame; alternatively the use of 1 or 2 additional pairs of regular TOFD probes connected to the conventional channels is possible It is also provided the ability of simultaneous K-Pattern pitch-catch detection of the transversal cracks with use of conventional shear wave probes Whilst scanning the weld from both sides along the fusion line the instrument performs: 100% raw data capturing True-to-geometry cross-sectional imaging for each probe separately and in the overlap Generating of the corresponding strip chart representing top view of the weld and HAZ
Coupling with the material is monitored for each PA probe separately and recorded into the corresponding strips
There is a number of scanners available for implementing of scanning with a pair of PA probes, such as, for example: SSBC 288700 - Advanced Scanner for Weld Inspection SSBC 288850 - Modular bracelet scanner for the inspection of butt welds in the small diameter pipes SSBC 288690 FR - Simple TOFD / EXPERT DUET Scanner Frame for carrying one pair of probes etc In order to prevent the quick damage of the cables of the PA probe carried by the scanner there are various extenders available, which are conncted to the instrument's PA probe terminals at one end and fitted into the scanner frame at the other so the PA probes cables are kept connected reliably
Use of 64-elements Linear Array Probes
64-elements linear array probes may be used with the 32-channels ISONIC 3510 when connecting to the instrument's PA probe terminal through the extension terminal (extender) part # S 4922A064D032 For the given pitch size the use of the extenderdoubles the width coverage in the material for the straight beam compression wave applications, such as flaw detection, corrosion mapping, inspection of composite panels for laminations, etc:
In case of using wedged linear array probes the extender allows doubling the size of the active aperture providing the sharp focusing and imaging while inspecting heavy thickness materials:
