PHASED ARRAY FLANGE INSPECTION from OMNISCAN®

Oceanscan PR pi 1Our Omniscans are the ideal solution for flange face corrosion inspections utilizing phased array techniques. Depending on the inspection requirements, Oceanscan can provide either an Omniscan 1664 for simple image capture reporting or an Omniscan 16128 for full encoded data capture analysis. Oceanscan has the technology.

Three tried and tested probe positions are on the flange tapper, between the bolt holes and on the outer rim, illustrated below. The shear wave inspection is usually carried out from 35 to 70 degree when fitted with a 55 degree wedge; data is displayed in S-Scan.
