Sensor Networks Ultrasonic Large Angle Beam Transducer SWS
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. Typical applications include weld inspection, tube and pipe, shafts, turbine blades and wheel rims. Shear waves are produced by refracting a longitudinal wave in a precision machined acrylic wedge that also minimizes wedge noise.
Sensor Networks’ ultrasonic large angle beam transducer SWSs are designed for general weld inspection and other applications such as pipes, tanks, pressure vessels, forgings and castings. They have top mounted BNC connectors and are available with piezocomposite elements (C series*). Interchangeable acrylic wedges provide maximum versatility and service life.
