Technology & Features
ADP Dual-Element Transducers
Model ADP are small-diameter, low-profile transducers with two fixed co-axial cables and come standard with BNC connectors but are also available with Lemo-00. They are especially suitable for flaw detection and thickness measurement on pitted, curved, and irregular surfaces. Because the elements are mounted on internal delay lines they can be contoured to fit I.D. or O.D. curved surfaces.
Dual-element contacts are longitudinal-wave (straight beam) transducers designed for near-surface and thin range flaw detection and thickness measurement. Two elements, one transmitter and one receiver, are mounted at an included (roof) angle to improve signals-to-noise ratio and optimize near-surface resolution.

*C Series – Composite (Piezocomposite) series of transducers have superior sensitivity and penetration especially in highly-attenuative materials. C series have both higher resolution, sensitivity, and have wide bandwidth (60-120% at -6db) due to the lower acoustic impedance of the material. They couple more efficiently into plastic wedges, delay lines, and water.
