In May of 1940, Floyd Firestone, a Professor in the department of Physics at the University of Michigan, filed US patent 2280226 in which he described an instrument for the detection of flaws and measuring thickness in metal objects. Dr. Firestone used the term “Supersonic Vibration Waves” to … [Read more...] about SuperSoniX™ – A new UT Couplant with a Historic Name
Many UT applications require a specialty UT couplant. For difficult inspections that require high acoustic impedance, shear wave, reduced surface noise, extreme temperature range or extended service life for sensors, we have the right couplant. High Impedance Couplant: A high impedance couplant … [Read more...] about Silver Bullet Couplants – for inspections that are almost impossible without the right couplant.
Echo’s automated ultrasonic testing fluids offer solutions for those who’ve encountered problems with other fluids. Often, fluids are too thick to pump, run off too fast, smoke too much, auto-ignite, freeze or vaporize so quickly that there’s no time to conduct the inspection. With AUT fluids in … [Read more...] about Looking for the right fluid for your AUT Inspections?
Thanks to everyone who visited with us at ASNT in Nashville. Couplant sample requests are being entered and we will be in touch soon. We had many discussions regarding the use and success of EchoPure for Phased Array inspections. EchoPure is the solution for phased array element drop out and the … [Read more...] about ASNT Annual Conference a big success
