Technology & Features
MWB+ & MWK+ Transducers
Models MWB+ and MWK+ are small transducers with side or top-mounted Microdot connectors and integral wedges for maximum versatility. GP series* (MWB+) offer the best combination of sensitivity and resolution. C series* (MWK+) with piezo composite elements offer superior resolution, penetration and signal-to-noise ratio in highly-attenuative and coarse-grain materials such as austenitic stainless steel or cast iron.
Angle-beam transducers and their wedges generate shear (transverse) waves at the specified angle in a given test material to detect flaws that cannot be detected by a straight-beam transducer. Shear waves are produced by refracting a longitudinal wave in a precision-machined acrylic wedge that also minimizes wedge noise.
Tubes and Pipes
*GP Series – General Purpose Series of transducers are recommended for most applications and have a good trade-off between sensitivity and resolution. They have a medium frequency bandwidth of 40-65% at -6db but with more ring-down cycles in the waveform.
*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.
