Sitescan D-50

Sitescan D-50

Sonatest Sitescan Flaw Detectors have always meant highly reliable, technician focused flaw detection equipment and this model builds on that tradition.

The Sitescan D-50 offers the end user an entry level broadband flaw detector in the popular and portable casing of the established D-Series; with a full VGA display, a 50nS (Spike) 200V, a Pulser 0.5dB gain resolution and an optional rubber boot.

Typical applications are Weld Fabrication, Corrosion Detection, Forgings & Castings and general UT inspection.

Sizing Technique  Description Standard or Optional
DAC Defined by up to 20 reference points or converted from TCG curve and digitally drawn on the screen. DAC curves meet the requirements of EN, ASME, JIS and many other standards. Custom DAC curves can be selected. DAC dynamic range can be extended by automatically adjusting the reference curve to match the reference gain. Scanning Gain and T-Loss available as separate controls. Amplitude readout is selectable between %FSH, % DAC or relative dB. Standard
TCG Time corrected or “Swept” gain, defined by up to 10 reference points or converted from a DAC curve. All points converted to 80% screen height. Option
Backwall Echo (BEA) Attenuation 0-40dB attenuation applied to the latter part of the time base, to improve the detectability of defects near the back wall and the loss of BWE due to porosity. Option (requires TCG)
AWS Built-in calculation and display of factors and parameters required by AWS D1.1 Option
AVG/DGS Enables the calculation of pseudo “DAC” curve and equivalent reflector size of UT indications, based on user input of transducer parameters. Option
API On-board flaw sizing method in accordance with API 5UE. Option
Interface Trigger Unlocks the interface trigger gate controls, which hold off the A-Scan acquisition and display until an interface echo is detected within a specific range and amplitude. Used for the elimination of water-path. Option
Corrosion/B-Scan Software Option Enables complex inspection plans to be uploaded from a PC using the on board Utility software. Features include 2 dimensional thickness logging, storing A-Logs and B-Logs with thickness values, taking multiple readings per location and note creation for each grid location. B-Scan option available to display bar-graph views of thickness readings taken by Gate 1 against distance or time Option (includes B-Scan)
Split DAC & DGS/AVG A   Option
