Sonatest Veo3 Phased Array Flaw Detector

The Veo3 phased array flaw detector takes the advantages of  the earlier Sonatest units that you have come to know and added some significant new features.  Fitted with a state-of-the-art PCAP touch panel, the now legendary user interface is even better. But what makes Veo3 really stand out, is its unique real-time multi-scan/multi-technique capabilities. Simultaneous TFM, PA and TOFD views are now possible.

Finance Your Purchase


You can inspect with confidence with the multi-technique advantage of the Sonatest Veo3 phased array flaw detector.

Correct configuration and selection of the most appropriate TFM propagation mode for application is a very real challenge. Comparing modes is frustrating and time consuming. With Veo3, having the ability to simultaneously show a PA and several live TFM scans it is now easier than ever to identify and size flaws with high P.O.D. and increased technician confidence. The advanced technology in Veo3 also allows the addition of a TOFD scan to the PA and TFM live scans–simultaneously.

Focus Where it Matters

The Veo3 has all the flexibility necessary to help you solve challenging applications. Its unique architecture can generate up to six live TFM scans, produced from multiple FMC sources on different probes. This allows the end-users to focus where it matters, solving the most difficult inspections.

Single Scan of Thicker Parts

The Veo3 can generate TFM images of up to 500K pixels with a maximum resolution of 100 pixel per mm without limiting the number of pixel per axis. Combining time corrected gain on the TFM image, the technician is able to inspect thicker parts with superior flexibility whilst remaining ASME compliant. And all with a single scan. The Veo3 has what it needs to answer your daily challenges. Flaw characterisation and assessment has never been this easy in difficult applications.

Full Data Capture and Analysis

All of the data received during Full Matrix Capture (FMC) scanning can be recorded on the Veo3. As a result, further detailed analysis can be performed including comparison with previous inspection data to identify trends and flaw/corrosion growth rates.  The Sonatest UTStudio+ software package has extensive capabilities to assist the inspector/expert or alternatively the data can be exported for analysis using other algorithms. Sonatest provides the tools necessary beyond just the basic inspection.
