Inspection of a small nozzle with GEKKO

Frédéric Reverdy

Senior Application and Products Engineer

We looked at a small nozzle (1" diameter) with a 5L16 small foot print phased-array probe. The nozzle was too small to use a scanner so we input the value of the position of the probe (45°) around the nozzle. We then moved the probe manually to position correctly the backwall echo along the overlay of the nozzle. GEKKO calculates automatically the overlay from the position entered in the interface making it easier to position the probe and to interpret potential indications. With a scanner (up to 3 axis) the calculation is done in real time as the probe moved around the nozzle.
