TURBINE INSPECTION

This example of a tree root blade shows that geometry echoes are present and the CAD overlay makes interpretation easier. With GEKKO equipment, it is possible to import 2D CAD files as overlays to help interpret echoes.

BLADE INSPECTION WITH HALF-SKIP TFM

GEKKO FOR BLADE INSPECTION WITH HALF-SKIP TFM

TFM and superimposition of a CAD file to ease the inspection diagnostic. The inspection has been carried using a 5 MHz probe of 64 elements, a pitch of 0.6mm and a wedge of 55° shear waves.

THICK BOILER TUBE INSPECTION

Thick boiler tube application (150 mm), sizing of small defects (1.5 mm).
64-element aperture allows to focus the beam and see the tip diffraction.

BOILER TUBE INSPECTION

GEKKO can use scanners for boiler tube inspection and use two 32-element PA for the inspection from both sides.

The Gekko can go up to 20 MHz and thus inspect thinner walls.
