Inspection of Electro Fusion Fittings using GEKKO

This video shows an inspection of Electro Fusion Fittings using flaw detector GEKKO, a 5 MHz phased-array probe by Karl Deutsh. The probe is coupled with Echotrace gel and moved over the electro fusion fitting. GEKKO or MANTIS calculates the TFM image in real-time at approx. 80 fps from the probe signals. The resulting image can also be understood even by people, who are not UT-experts.

The configuration of TFM with the GEKKO or MANTIS is very easy: choose the probe, the material and the thickness of the pipe and fitting, as well as the image size, and it is done. Start inspecting!
