The probes operated continuously at 200[degrees]C without ultrasonic couplant and cooling.
Relative attenuation of the ultrasonic signal through the thickness (center web) was measured using 500 kHz transducers and a high-temperature couplant as the specimen cooled from 121[degrees]C to room temperature.
A thin layer of transducer couplant was applied to the tip of the delay line and aluminum platen surface prior to assembly of the test cell which was determined to be filled when contact with the aluminum was observed ultrasonically.
Unlike UT and eddy current testing, MIB "sees" through fly ash and other wall build-up and so requires no pre-cleaning of the water wall, such as sandblasting; it also requires no couplant.
The ultrasonic tools are designed to inspect dry, partially full or full pipes with a couplant supplied through the tool's umbilical, while navigating vertically and horizontally within the pipe.
