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.
Build Your Expertise With Confidence
In the past decade, there have been few revolutions in the world of advance ultrasonic technologies; the latest is the introduction of Total Focusing Method (TFM).
Inspection of Nozzles using the Veo+ and Scannner
Traditional UT inspection is time consuming, creating a scan plan and then performing the scan using multiple transducers. When using the Veo+ and Nozzle Scan the set ups can all be done offsite, thereby substantially reducing and easing site work.
Flange Inspection PAUT
Phased array gives the ability to inspect flanges without having to take them apart, resulting in quicker and cheaper inspections.
Phased Array Bolt Inspection
Traditional methods for checking bolts include removing and visually checking for any cracking, this not only takes a long time but can also cost a huge amount of money
Composite Inspection Benefits and Challenges Using Ultrasonic NDT Solutions
Ultrasonic Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) has helped engineers inspect all sorts of composite materials for years.
Sensitivity Response of Total Focusing Method (TFM) for Weld Inspection Versus Other Methods
Total Focusing Method (TFM) is an ultrasonic-based technique enhanced with the post-processing algorithm.
Linear Scanning with the Glider
The RSflite workflow is designed for composite inspections.
Advanced Composite Inspection
A complete picture of a large component can be produced by stitching C-scans together in the UTmap software.
Remote NDT - Field Applications and User Cases
The remote control capabilities of instruments nowadays ease the development of new NDT applications, especially in harsh environments or restricted areas where it can be difficult to bring together measurement instrument and technician.
Thickness Logging Compliant with AlphaGage+
Wear rates can be calculated and used to estimate when the minimum allowable thickness will remain with the AlphaGage+
