Dry-Coupled Wheel Probes. Beyond the coupling medium

taurus roldana

As was explained in the first article in this series, which dealt with non-destructive testing, ultrasound can be transmitted through a medium, be it gaseous, liquid or solid. However, they experience special difficulty when it comes to passing from one medium to another if these present characteristics as dissimilar as air and metal. For this … Read more

Ultrasonics. Beyond the coupling medium


Non-Destructive testing: the need to see inside Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is very widely used in different industrial sectors for the analysis of the interior structure and integrity of parts and components without causing them any type of damage. It was during the 1930’s that ultrasonics was first used in industrial applications, more specifically in the … Read more
