Flexible solutions

Conformable wedges

Principle

The conformability is obtained with a flexible membrane filled with water between the transducer and the inspected component. The coupling between the membrane and the component requires a small quantity of water or couplant.

Advantages

The conformable wedge combines

  • The acoustic performance of immersion technique with good coupling and low attenuation
  • The flexibility and ease of use of contact technique
  • The compliance with non-regular and/or variable surface geometry

Main features

  • Compatible with most types of arrays (linear, matrix, focused, curved, etc.)
  • Acoustic performance close to water thanks to acoustically invisible membrane
  • Wear resistant membrane (No damage observed after a run of 0.5Km at 10cm/s over a corroded steel part with Ra of 20µm, with lubrication and load of 1Kg)
  • Halogen free
  • Bubble trap system
  • Easy implementation and easy membrane replacement
  • Good chemical stability

Options

  • Angled and L0° membranes
  • Water inlets for coupling between wedge and inspected part
  • Lateral guides for manual use
  • Mechanical interface for automated use with scanner
