Transducers Characteristics Explained
What connection should it have?
The ultrasonic transducer is strongly secured to the cable at the factory
A single element transducer features a single crystal that sends and receives the pulse and are made for high frequency use. Mostly for use with the flaw detectors.
Fitted with a heavy duty armoured cable for increased wear resistance.
A dual element transducer consists of two crystal elements housed in the same case, separated by an acoustic barrier. Mostly for use with the thickness gauges.
Pencil Probe: 1/16" Tip
Pencil style transducer with a straight or 90° angle tip for limited access applications. Can only be used with the PG70ABDL.
Designed for use with the FD700+ flaw detectors features a reinforced tip design for abrasive surface applications. Also available with a high power composite crystal for better penetration.
A high temperature transducer to be used on hot surfaces. High temperature transducers are available up to either 343°C (650°F) or 482°C (900°F).
Specially designed for use with the UG20DL underwater gauge.
General purpose contact transducers for use with the FD700+ series, featuring good near surface resolution. Also available with a high power composite crystal for better penetration or as a slim line model for accurate positioning.
Small part used with single element transducers to slow the sound pulse down to allow measurement on thinner materials. Can only be used with the precision gauges.
High power transducer for increased range and penetration through sound absorbing materials.
Transducers featuring a curved wearface for measuring inside cylinders and engine blocks. Available for measuring on Iron (Iron) or Aluminium (Alum).
Limiting the duration or decreasing the amplitude of vibrations. For use with EE (ThruPaint™) only.
Small body transducer to enable measurement in small spaces, available with either a standard probe or 25mm (1") or 225mm (9") handles.
High gain transducer for increased power and penetration.
Large Single element transducer designed to be used with angle beam wedges for a powerful flaw detection solution.
Features increased near surface resolution, ideal for use on thin substrates.
Transducer with a soft, flexible wearface that increases contact quality between the transducer and the part on rough surfaces. Also available with a high power composite crystal for better penetration.
Utilising ThruPaint™ technology these transducers are capable of simultaneous measurement of coating and material thickness.
