Low-profile arrays are designed to inspect small diameter or thin-walled pipes for flaws and defects. A15 and A25 cases are also useful for applications with low clearance at the inspection area. Low-profile wedges optimize the arrays for small-diameter weld inspection. Custom arrays and wedges can be ordered upon request.

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.
A single element in the array. In this graphic, 1 of 16 elements.
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.
