Russell Fraser Sales have launched Sonatest’s new Veo 16:64 Phased Array instrument.
The Veo has a multi-technique functionality, including TOFD; fast data recording, and a simple user interface encased in a rugged housing.
It is designed for pipeline weld inspection, pipe corrosion mapping, and composite testing.
It display full 3D views of the user’s test set up including probes, wedges, the weld and geometry, with phased array beams.
On board probe and wedge databases have been incorporated into the instrument for fast setups.
The phased array instrument has TCG and ACG for quick encoding speeds with fast A-scan recording and reporting functionality.
Two separate conventional channels provide simultaneous Phased Array and TOFD scanning to speed inspection and ensure correct data referencing for improved defect characterisation.
Real Time Focal Law calculations allow the user to change scanning parameters instantly, reducing the time spent on setup and defect investigation.
The Veo enclosure has been designed to withstand the tough environments in which NDT inspections are carried out, achieving IP65 standard for water and dust ingress and employing internal shock mounts to withstand impacts.
