Large Angle Beam 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.
Model SWS Angle-Beam Transducers
Model SWS 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.
