Acoustography NDE – Components Required

The basic components needed to perform Acoustography NDE are: 1) AO-Sensor (Imaging Screen); 2) Wand Transducer (ultrasound emitter); 3) Optical imager Detector. The Wand Transducer is swept across the part held over the AO sensor to form instant x-ray like ultrasound images of the part revealing anomalies in the test part.  The image formed on the AO sensor is viewed and digitally recorded using the Optical Imager.
