Straight beam phased array probes

Don Horne   

GE Measge0715urement & Control's MB.FPA16 and B.FPA16 ultrasonic probes are straight beam phased array probes that feature hard face, direct contact surfaces instead of non-abrasive protective membranes. As a result, they offer longer working life and higher sensitivity, without the need for delay lines, while providing the time-saving, comprehensive coverage of phased array technology. Typical applications include fast, accurate and comprehensive inspection of billets, welds and forgings in a wide range of industrial sectors. They feature a low impedance composite transducer material with high impedance hard face protection. Consequently, there is no need for surface protection or delay lines which can cause recurring interface echoes.
