April 24, 2013 - Chris Magruder covers the essential ingredients of Phased Array and basic theory.
March 22, 2013 - Precision phased array crack sizing improves on traditional conventional UT inspection techniques through use of beam focusing and improved crack tip imaging. This webinar is intended to demonstrate use of common crack sizing techniques and best practices for optimizing the OmniScan MX2 for manual and semi-automated crack detection and sizing. Covered topics include OmniScan sector scan setup and calibration, phased array setup for shear wave tip diffraction, high angle long wave inspection, ID creeping wave inspection, and use of advanced probes for austenitic materials. The Webinar will demonstrate crack sizing A-B-C's using the OmniScan MX2 live, and also include analysis of sample crack data files using OmniPC and latest software.

February 28, 2013 - Chris Magruder presents the latest addition to the OmniScan MX2 family of modules: The Omni-PA2 module. With an emphasis on improved TOFD, the new Omni-PA2 module combines the MX2 phased array capability with simultaneous TOFD acquisitions from an independent high definition UT board for improved A-scan quality and TOFD B-scan imaging.

This webinar provides a brief overview of the physics of phased array ultrasound and demonstrates the benefits of this innovative technology for the inspection of small diameter piping in new construction or during the maintenance of boilers, heaters, cracking furnaces and other piping systems. Although radiography has been the inspection tool of choice for many years for these inspections, this 45-minute presentation discusses the many advantages of phased array ultrasound: mainly faster and safer inspections without shutting down the work area around the inspection and providing additional flaw measurement capability over radiography. The latest advances in portable semi-automated ultrasonic systems along with low-profile scanners, probes and wedges optimized for small diameter piping are important factors that have contributed to the acceptance of phased array in the petrochemical and related industries.
