Dual-Linear Phased Array transducers are optimized for corrosion and erosion inspection up to 100°C (212°F). All models provide 32 or more transmit/receive elements that provide larger beam coverage than conventional dual-element transducers allowing for more efficient inspection time. These arrays also provide increased POD for pits in corrosion applications. Replaceable wear plates can be curved to match pipe diameters.

About Linear Arrays
The linear array is the most common form factor used in industrial phased array testing including TFM/FMC applications. The linear array allows electronic control of the active plane of the transducer including steering angle, depth of focus, and position of the sound beam.

Width of a single element.
Space between adjacent elements.
Array Pitch; the distance between the center points of two adjacent elements. Pitch controls the arrays resolution and steering ability.
Array Elevation; the length of the elements.
