Product Description

 

elcometer-ndt-fd700+-ultrasonic-flaw-detectors-detection-gauges

The Elcometer NDT FD700+ Ultrasonic Flaw Detectors Detection Gaugesare small powerful hand-held flaw detectors combining state-of-the-art flaw detection with advanced material thickness capabilities. With all the functionality of the top of the range material thickness gauge, the FD700+ flaw detector, when in flaw detection mode offers a variety of tool kits which enable fast and accurate flaw detection, ideal for weld inspection, forgings or composite material testing.
Elcometer FD700+ Flaw Detectors / Detection GaugesTool kits include:

  • TRIG enabling location of flaws in both surface distance and depth.
  • DAC for the creation of DAC curves which are used to inform the operator of the size of any given flaw at any depth.
  • AWS function provides automatic defect sizing in accordance with AWS D1.1 structural welding code.
  • AVG/DGS allows automatic defect sizing using probe data, storing up to 64 custom setups.
  • TCG (time corrected gain) increases gain as distance increases, in order to achieve an overall level of sensitivity for the same flaw/reflector at different distances.

TRIG

TRIG enabling location of flaws in both surface distance and depth. Trigonometric display of beam path, depth, surface distance, and curved surface correction. Used with angle beam transducers.

DAC

Distance amplitude correction for the creation of DAC curves which are used to inform the operator of the size of any given flaw at any depth.

AWS

The American Weld Standard function provides automatic defect sizing in accordance with AWS D1.1 structural welding code.

TCG

Time corrected gain increases gain as distance increases, in order to achieve an over all level of sensitivity for the same flaw/reflector at different distances.

Zero Crossing

The gate detects the flank of the pulse, but the measurement is taken at the next crossing of the x axis. This is the most common type of detect in ultrasonic measurement.

Flank

The gate is triggered by the flank (or side) of the pulse on the graph and the measurement taken at this exact point.

Peak

The gate is triggered by the intersection with the A-scan pulse and the detection is taken from the next peak in the signal (when it stops rising and starts falling).
