CDS wedges are designed to generate both a 30 degree shear wave and a 70 degree longitudinal wave in steel for sizing ID connected cracking by means of the 30-70-70 technique.
The 30-70-70 crack detection technique uses a single element transducer with a CDS wedge for detection and sizing of ID connected cracks. This technique uses a combination of three waves for sizing flaws of different depths.
Based on the presence or absence of these three waves, both detection and sizing of ID connected cracks is possible.
CDS Wedges are used in the "30-70-70" technique for crack detection and sizing. They are compatible with our replaceable miniature screw-in angle beam transducers, making them an economical alternative to other commercially available products.
