Proceq FD100 UT
Proceq FD100 UT A flexible and portable high tech Ultrasonic Flaw detector for metal of all types. Fully compatible with a very wide array of conventional and both focused and unfocused phased array probes. Offering technicians most of the popular flaw sizing techniques including DGS, DAC, AVG, TGC and AWS.
Proceq FD100 UT Thanks to the A, B, C, True Top and End scans imaging capabilities, users can address many applications from one instrument. 3D scan plans assist in creating inspection procedures and analysing the results.
The Proceq Flaw Detector features best in class User Experience that is unmatched using grouped options on screen, shortcut keys and a click-wheel for fast navigation and easy setup, calibration, and analysis enabling faster detection of flaws and other hidden properties in the part inspected. It features settings that can be saved and re-used, the wizards and option specific help allowing for fast configuration.
Housed in a rugged IP66 rated housing with advanced features aimed at faster identification and simplifying reporting. Available in 4 options, with the Proceq Flaw Detector 100UT as the base model. Can be upgraded from base model to TOFD & PA on field anytime. Making it the instrument of choice by many technicians.
Advantages of using ultrasonic technique for inspection include:
- Requires less preparation of test surfaces than other NDT methods.
- With the use of different techniques, high sensitivity can be achieved on surface and sub-surface flaws.
- The use of high frequencies achieves excellent sensitivity for detection of flaws perpendicular to the axis of wave propagation.
- The use of lower frequencies allows for penetration that is superior to any other NDT method.
- Multiple applications and techniques can be achieved by simply swapping transducers. Ultrasonics is one of the most versatile techniques available.
- Access to only one face of the material required when using a Pulse-Echo method for flaw detection.
- Determining the reflector’s (flaw) position, shape and size in the object tested is highly accurate with a skilled operator.
- High resolution images provide instant results making report generation simple and effective.
- Testing can be automated, and reports generated continuously for production type environments.
Users can perform many applications Including:
- Ultrasonic Thickness Surveys
- Corrosion detection and measurement
- Flaw detection in welds, castings and forgings
- Pipeline weld inspection projects
- Complex geometries
- Forgings and castings
- Aircraft composites delamination
For efficient weld inspection, Proceq offers both focused and unfocused PA scan options.
