This couplant is designed for use on all types of metallic surface and is especially suited to solving the problems of rough, pitted, uneven surfaces to allow smooth probe movement during testing.
The thixotropic properties of this couplant give excellent wetting and acoustic transmission and do not allow the product to flow all over the test area; and so is very economical to use as you only cover the working area not the whole piece.

Sonagel W incorporates chemicals, which allow very slow drying even at elevated temperatures, whilst being free VOC's and other hazardous materials. However, it does contain a special tracer dye to enable areas to be checked for coverage but the couplant is still easily removed with water or solvent wipes.
Sonagel W is available in easy to use 125ml applicator bottles, 250ml bottles, as well as in plastic 1 litre, 5 litre and 25 litre bulk containers (with suitable carrying handles).
*NB: This product will have a flash point of 160°C (PM) when used for long periods at elevated temperatures.
Corrosion Mapping from PA to TFM
Corrosion inspections are used to evaluate the remaining wall thickness or the presence of mid-wall anomalies in pipeworks, pressure vessels and other metallic structures.
Austenitic Stainless Steel Solution DAAH - Dual Linear Array Probe
Austenitic stainless steel is well known for its high mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. This material is often used in the oil and gas, and nuclear industries where ultrasonic inspection techniques represent an important portion of the quality control process. However, these alloys often are very attenuating and the sound propagation in this material is anisotropic.
Long Seam weld Inspection with Phased Array
Phased Array inspection of curved parts brings some real technical challenges. Evaluation of seam welds on small diameter and heavy wall pipes is difficult to accomplish using actual tools that, most of the time, are based
on a flat surface model. This often leads to erroneous and imprecise flaw location and sizes.
