Penetration tubes
Application example


Extra flat probes : < 2 mm thickness
Integrated water coupling system

Set of extra flat probes for penetration tubes inspection


TOFD technique for axial defects
TOFD technique for circumferencial defects
L0° Pulse echo technique for thickness measurement

Automated inspection with a sword
Coupling with water film

The probes are inserted in a 2.5 mm gap around the penetration tubes


Electroacoustic performances including bandwidth, in spite of the small thickness of the probes

Inspection feasibility thanks to miniaturised probes

Reliability in industrial using conditions including radiation
