Improved Inspection Productivity

Weld inspection often requires two or three angle beam transducers (45, 60, and 70 degrees) to comply with industry standards. A significant amount of time is spent on locating & connecting/reconnecting transducers, calibrating, and scanning the same volume multiple times. By electronically steering the beam, the Phasor XS can inspect at angles from 0-degrees to 90-degrees eliminating the need for multiple transducers and scans.

In addition, often the optimum inspection is not at one of the fixed angles. The Phasor XS automatically identifies the optimum inspection angle and allows the operator to replay the associated A-scan.

The globalapplication centers custom design phased array probes for unique and challenging applications.

 

 

Phasor Conventional Transducers

 

 

Corrosion Detection, Imaging and Digital Measurement with Phasor CV/DM

Phasor CV/DM provides a simple and elegant method for reliable monitoring corrosion, identifying corrosion pits, displaying meaningful images, and providing digital measurements. It does this by using a specially developed phased array compression transducer, which provides 28 adjacent and discrete inspection probes to allow extensive linear coverage. This ensures that even the smallest corrosion pit is identified and evaluated.

The corrososion software specially developed for the Phasor CV/DM displays results in an understandable and useful way, both in terms of digital data and imagery. A positional encoder provides precise linear location information for each scan.

 

 

Ease of Use

The Phasor XS uses a simple menu user interface proven so successful in the USN-50, 52, 58, and 60. A single key press selects the menu or feature; a rotary knob selects the feature value. A dedicated knob sets GAIN.

Real-time Imaging

Rapid inspections require a fast screen data refresh rate to make sure the display keeps up with the inspection scan. The Phasor XS’s best-in-class 60 Hz refresh rate ensures the image reflects the scanning position.

Inspection data can be displayed as a traditional A-Scan, sector scan, or both simultaneously.

And a series of screen and menu palettes let the inspector optimize the screen display to their preference and the lighting conditions.

The unique video reverse mode aligns transducer motion with the Phasor display for fast intuitive decision-making.

 

Portability

At 3.8 kg (8 lbs.), the Phasor XS with soft shell carrying case can be easily slung over your shoulder and carried to the inspection site. Once on-site, position the Phasor XS on convenient surfaces or simply hang it from your neck for stress free inspections.

With more than 6-hour battery life, the Phasor XS can be used for continuous shift inspections.

 

 

TOPView

TOPView allows the user view the scanned area from the top. This perspective is generated using the gated region in the Sector scan or Linear B-scan. Using TOPView, users can easily and more accurately record indications. TOPView also offers these enhanced features:

  • Gate data points simultaneously buffered for Time of Flight and Amplitude from both gates for evaluation in Freeze Analysis mode.
  • Dataset file records gate points (A-scans are not part of stored data.)
  • Selectable Interface Gate Start mode for varying delay path
  • Peak A-scan display

*TOPView is only available on the Phasor XS instrument.

 

Aerospace

A quick and flexible Phased Array solution that's totally reliable
The Phasor XS offers all sections of the aerospace industry a compact, portable and effective Phased Array UT solution. We've leveraged GE's expertise as a major player in the aerospace industry to deliver our first portable Phased Array product. This allows advanced inspections to be carried out in the field with greater speed and accuracy than ever before.

Easy interpretation means rapid decisions
For inspection procedures which typically require three scans, Phased Array imaging from the multiple beams of the Phasor XS provide integrated cross-sectional visualization which is very easy to interpret. Its full-color, real-time sectors display has a selectable A-Scan which allows accurate evaluation on the spot, giving you the kind of performance previously only available from a more costly computer platform.

Portable Phased Array, a practical solution
Because the Phasor XS weighs a mere 3.8 kg (8.2 lbs.), it is not only an extremely convenient and flexible tool, it is also ideally suited to the aerospace industry where weight is a crucial issue in on-wing inspections. In addition, the Phasor XS is a combined detector which means you get both Phased Array and a code-compliant conventional detector in one lightweight package.

 

Power Generation

The Portable Phased Array that decreases downtime
The Phasor XS, GE Inspection Technologies' first portable Phased Array UT detector, is so compact and light that not only does it let your inspectors work faster, it also gives them easy access to areas that have previously been off-limits. Once on site, the angle focus and active area of the array's controlled beam allow it to cover a larger area and eliminate the need to connect and reconnect probes to achieve a full image.

Higher POD rates than conventional detectors
The Phasor XS allows new test procedures with far higher POD rates. With the Phasor XS you get a full-color, real time sector display with a selectable A-Scan for instant and accurate evaluation. In an industry where every second of downtime is crucial, the speed and accuracy of the Phasor XS is an invaluable asset.

Light, compact and truly portable
The Phasor XS is no larger than a conventional UT flaw detector and, at just 3.8 kg (8.2 lbs.), it is very easy to handle, so accessing and testing awkward or hazardous areas can be carried out with the utmost speed and efficiency.

EPRI Qualified 
Through continuous testing and qualification, the Phasor XS has been issued a Performance Demonstration Qualification Summary (PDQS) by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). As a result, the Phasor XS is the only instrument qualified for manual Phased Array procedure for detection, and length sizing of ferritic and austentic piping, including Intergranular Stress Corrosion Cracking (IGSCC) for the nuclear power industry.

 

Oil & Gas

Inspections in the Oil & Gas and Petroleum industries seldom take place in convenient locations. The field inspector is often up on scaffolding or at a remote location next to pipelines or offshore installations. The Phasor XS is a 3.8 kg Phased Array instrument that will improve probability of defect detection in the most demanding of conditions. Better decisions come from benchmarked improvements in detecting and sizing defects, and the simplicity of the Phasor XS puts this advanced capability within the reach of the everyday operator.

Greater productivity
Most weld inspection operations require three different angles to comply with industry standards. The controllable beam in the Phasor XS allows the angle focus and active area to be varied electronically without the need to connect and reconnect probes. This makes most weld inspections with the Phasor XS significantly faster than with conventional flaw detectors.

Advanced applications
The Phasor XS has a powerful 150 volt peak-to-peak square wave pulser and is capable of using a wide variety of advanced Phased Array probes. As a result, the Phasor XS can tackle complex applications such as flange corrosion and heavy wall flaw detection that, until now, could only be tackled effectively by much more expensive Phased Array instruments.

A Phasor XS image is worth a thousand A-Scans. The integrated cross-sectional image makes it far easier to determine the location and orientation of flaws detected.

 

Transportation

Portable Phased Array helps you to maintain your inspection timetable
With the relentless and often conflicting quest for both higher quality and lower costs, fast and accurate testing is essential. Flaw inspection in the railway and automotive industries has many facets. That's why the Phasor XS, GE Inspection Technologies' first truly portable Phased Array UT flaw detector was designed to be an extremely versatile and flexible tool. Its light weight makes it ideal for remote locations and its full-color real-time sector display has a selectable A-Scan for instant and accurate evaluation.

Easy operation with less training
Although the Phasor XS is an entry-level Phased Array inspection solution, it does not lack sophistication. It is built on a successful and familiar operating platform. This, as well as its menu-driven operation, means that its advanced technology is easily accessible to trained inspectors. The full-color display of its ultrasonic data makes interpretation of the scan result simpler, quicker and more accurate.

Long battery life for operation in remote locations
Rail flaw inspection is often in areas far from mains electricity supply. The Phasor XS has a long 6-hour battery life which allows inspectors to do a full day's work on one charge. And because of its rapid inspection speed, each day will be a very productive one.

Support of standards and internal specifications
Switches to conventional UT quickly so that inspectors can use any standard probe to evaluate detected flaws (locating and sizing) to any specified standard or test instruction. This is necessary until the Phased Array technique is included in the current UT standards.
