PHASED ARRAY SCANNER
The future of Ultrasonic Examinations
Phased array scanner technology is the most talked about ultrasonic technique in the industry today. The reason behind this is its capability of creating multiple beam angles and focal points with the use of a multi-element ultrasonic transducer, and providing a full volumetric sectorial scans (S-Scans), a feature unique to this technology. S-Scans are real-time side view images generated from a single inspection point; in essence, it depicts an internal view of the component being inspected. With this technology, weld flaw and crack detection and sizing can be achieved with pin-point accuracy and at a high rate of speed; many times faster than conventional shearwave inspection.
