The new corrosion software module for the EPOCH® 6LT ultra-portable flaw detector expands the in-strument’s capabilities with a suite of features to help you take fast, accurate and reproducible thickness measurements.
The corrosion software supports automatic probe recognition for all standard Olympus dual trans-ducers, so users spend less time setting up the instrument and more time in the field. Simply plug in a supported probe, and the instrument is automatically configured for use. The software’s most powerful feature allows users to quickly switch between two modes—flaw detection and corrosion—to make cor-rosion inspections simple and effective.
In flaw detection mode, users get the speed and performance of an ultrasonic flaw detector to scrub for corrosion-related defects while maintaining traditional flaw detector gain linearity, gate control and 60 Hz screen update rates. Once a potential defect is located, inspectors can switch to corrosion mode with the push of a button.
Corrosion mode enables users to record precise spot measurements of remaining part thickness to thoroughly evaluate any areas of corrosion that are located during scanning.
