Dual Linear Array
The new Dual Linear Array™ probe for corrosion inspection provides many advantages over conventional ultrasonic dual element transducers. This phased array solution improves productivity through features such as larger beam coverage, faster scan speed, and C-scan imaging with increased datapoint density. The pitch-catch technique used by this new probe offers better near-surface resolution and pit detection in corrosion survey applications than standard phased array pulse-echo, improving the probability of detection of critical wall thinning. Thanks to new features, such as built-in irrigation and a replaceable delay line that can be contoured to better adapt to pipe curvature, the DLA corrosion probe can now be used to perform automated inspection.
