C-Scan & 3D Imaging For all types of the cross-sectional coverage ISONIC 3510 provides 3D Data Presentation - Top (C-Scan), Side, and End Projection Views through the line scanning either encoded or time-based with use of the linear array probes at rectangle to the elements count direction There is a large number of various encoders and scanners available for the True-to-Location recording along the scanning line whilst scanning a wide variety of parts and materials - planar and circumferential butt welds, longitudinal seams, composites, raw materials, and the like. Some encoders and scanners for the line-scanning with use of one phased array probe are presented below. For scanning with a pair of phased array probe click on the DUET tab.
SK 2001108 PA - Wheels-free draw wire encoder
This simple encoder is suitable for the quick manual scanning of the short sections (up to 1 meter) of the plates, planar butt welds, longitudinal welds, large OD circumefrential welds, and the like
SK 2001116 PA - Double magnetic wheel encoder
The robust edencoder provides stable direction scanning with reliable positioning data. Phased array probe is fitted into the corresponding probe holder connected to the the encoder. Each probe holder is quipped with the irrigation channel allowing reliable copling along the whole scanning trace.
The enccoder 2001116 PA is suitable for the scanning above flat surfaces and pipes with OD of 50 mm and above.
SK 200111 PA - Wheeled encoder (silicon tires) for scanning above non-magnetic materials
The robust encoder provides stable direction scanning with reliable positioning data. Phased array probe is fitted into the corresponding probe holder connected to the the encoder. Each probe holder is equipped with the irrigation channel allowing reliable copling along the whole scanning trace.
SSBC 288850 - Modular bracelet scanner for the inspection of butt weldsin the boiler tubes, etc
The Miniature low profile scanner provides stable scanning with reliable positioning data and coupling During the line scanning every cross sectional view is recorded along with the complete sequence of raw data A-Scans it is composed of. C-Scan image is switcheable between distance (thickness or defects depth) and amplitude map Very powerful off-line data analysis toolkit includes: Playing back cross sectional views and A-Scans Gain manipulation in ±6dB range for all recorded A-Scans followed by corresponding update of the cross-sectional, Top-, Side-, End- views All-standards-compliant gate-based evaluation of the echoes Geometry and amplitude filtering Automatic marking of the defects and creating of the defect list Automatic and manual determining projection dimensions and area size of defects Image slicing and profiling 3D-viewing etc
Crack Sizing Internal Cracks ISONIC 3510 allows detection and high precision sizing of the internal cracks inside the material based on the analysis of the shear and / or longitudinal wave tip diffraction signals Shear Wave Diffraction Based Sizing of the Vertical Cracks
Longitudinal Wave Diffraction Based Sizing of the Vertical Cracks
Narrowing the region of interest shortens the time base for the A-Scans forming the cross-sectional coverage view allowing to distinguish between the upper and lower tip of the crack through 180-deg phase shift of the first half wave. This makes it possible applying of the TOFD technique principles whilst scanning with one probe only.
It is important that both the shear and the longitudinal wave cross-sectional coverage either S-Scan or B-Scan or a combination of them may be implemented simultaneously out of the same wedged linear array probe through running of the ISONIC PA MULTIGROUP utility. At last performing of the shear wave and longitudinal wave inspection with crack sizing in a single pass with one PA probe only became possible Surface Breaking Cracks Sizing of the surface-breaking cracks is implemented with use of 64-elements linear array probe. Separated emitting and receiving aperture with matching focal points produce and receive longitudinal wave signals in a sequence containing several pulsing-receiving cycles (focal laws). The matching focal points of the emitting and receiving aperture are manipulated over the vertical line between the bottom and near surface of the material synchornously. For each focal law the time base of the A-Scan is re-arranged automatically to provide appearance of every possible tip diffraction echo at 50% horizontal position. Recorded signal heights are represented on the Tip Diffraction B-Scan. Placing mouse cursor over the desired cell of the Tip Diffraction B-Scan  reproduces the corresponding A-Scan and the ray trace. For the detected tip diffraction signal the crack depth and the remaining material thickness are determined with high precision (~0.1 mm) through the triangulation routine.
Example of the Tip Diffraction B-Scan obtained with the linear array probe placed above the material without (1) and with (2) a surface breaking crack: 3 - lateral wave (LW) signal mark; 4 - back wall (BW) echo mark; 5 - BW echo representation on the A- Scan; 6 - tip diffraction signal mark; 7 - tip diffraction signal appearance on the A-Scan; 8, 9 - precisely defined crack depth and remaining material thickness
Defects Pattern Analysis The pattern analysis for the weld imperfections found by pulse-echo technology may be performed by ISONIC 3510 instrument with the use of well-known Delta Technique. Comparing to the quite bulky traditional embodimet for the Delta-Technique requiring the use of angle beam shear wave and zero-degree compression wave conventinal probes and two different instrument readings to be taken through implementation of two different calibration sets the phased array technology based solution requires one wedged linear array probe only
In order to distinguish between the low risk volumetric and the critical sharp edge defects there are just two pulsing-receiving cycles (focal laws) focal laws implemented in sequence: the first focal law provides emitting of the shear wave towards the discountinuity and receiving of the direct shear wave echo  (marked as 1) the second focal law provides emitting of the shear wave towards the discountinuity and receiving of the diffracted longitudinal wave echo (marked as 2) The instrument evaluates the above signals automatically and provides the digital readout (marked as 3) for so called KLS value, based on which the defect pattern is recognized.
