Detachable Active Array Head (DAAH): A Proposed Solution to Help the Proliferation of Phased Array Manual UT

F. Mainguy

As the price of portable phased array instrumentation drops, the current phased array probe technology doesn’t allow for a major cost reduction, to a point where the proliferation of phased array for manual UT may be limited or impossible. The current manufacturing process is presented to better understand where the high costs come from. A Detachable Active Array Head (DAAH) technology is proposed to solve many problems related to manual phased array UT, but also to semi-automated and automated UT. Results show that the technology has a great potential to become the long-awaited solution for phased array massive adoption.
