November 18, 2010

QUÉBEC, CANADA– Zetec Inc., the leading supplier of mission-critical NDT solutions, introduces the Zircon, a battery-operated 32/128PR portable phased array unit featuring a rugged casing with no air intake and state-of-the-art electronics for outstanding signal quality. This next-generation phased array UT instrument is also equipped with two dedicated conventional UT channels pulsing at 200 volts for pulse-echo, pitch-catch or time of flight diffraction inspections. Also worth mentioning is the PR mode, essential to truly benefit from the potential of dual arrays on attenuating materials.

Driven by the industry-leading UltraVision 3 software, this equipment can generate data files up to 20 gigabytes with a high data throughput. By handling up to 1,024 focal laws, it allows the operator to fully benefit from the versatility of phased array technology. By combining the most feature-rich software of the industry and a high-performance, portable instrument, you create the system of choice for automated or manually encoded inspections: welds, turbine components, castings, piping and aerospace applications. Zetec’s long history of high-quality products is continuing, only to be more compact and more portable.
