Single-element contacts are longitudinal-wave (straight-beam) transducers designed for general purpose manual ultrasonic inspection where test materials are relatively flat and smooth. They provide high sensitivity for better penetration, small-flaw detection, and have abrasion-resistant wear plates for extended service life.
The larger element sizes of Sensor Networks’ ultrasonic contact transducer CR provide greater scan widths and penetration for applications such as plate, billet, bars, thick-section parts, pipe, and tanks. They have side-mounted BNC connectors and removable comfort grip to reduce operator fatigue. GP series* offer the best combination of sensitivity and resolution.
