Krautkramer Usip 40




The Waygate Technologies Krautkramer USIP 40 Multi-Channel Ultrasonic Flaw Detector, a Baker Hughes business product (formerly GE Inspection Technologies), delivers precision, multi-channel ultrasonic testing performance you can rely on. It is available with up to ten ultrasonic channels and comes in three different package options – a remote ultrasonic unit, an integrated rack-mount instrument, or a fully portable, battery-powered instrument. All versions utilize the same core electronic hardware and Graphical User Interface. When you combine its outstanding ultrasonic performance with optional application specific imaging and analysis tools, you can see that the USIP 40 is the ultimate solution for your current and future inspection needs.

Accommodates a Wide Field of Applications:

The USIP 40 Aero configuration is qualified to GE DFO P3TF22, P3TF30, P3TF35, and RRAE RPS705 specifications for jet engine component inspections. USIP 40 instruments are also extensively used for airframe composite inspection by leading aircraft manufacturers.

Used in conjunction with Ultraproof imaging software, the USIP 40 is the perfect instrument for inspecting pistons and other safety critical parts. Configured in this way, the USIP 40 provides visualization and recording of alarm outputs as well as automatic evaluation and reporting of single flaws, interacted flaws, and total numbers of flaws per part and per batch.

Pipe and Tube
With the appropriate probe holders and imaging software, the USIP 40 is easily set up for weld inspection, multi-channel flaw detection and wall thickness measurement.

Plate and Billet
Combining inspection productivity and coverage requires multiple inspection channels. The 10-Channel USIP 40 fills this need in both manual and automated inspection environments.

Roll Testing
The multi-channel USIP 40 combined with C-Scan imaging provides rapid scanning of industrial rollers. Waygate Technologies’ K-Scan software knits multiple ultrasonic channels to form one continuous C-Scan. In combination with the USIP 40’s 20,000 Hz PRF, this package is perfect for high-speed defect evaluation and sizing.

Vessel Weld Inspection
Combined with Ultramap Weld software, the USIP 40 can be configured to perform multi-channel inspections of welds on pressure vessels to ASME Case 2235 utilizing both Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) and pulse-echo B-Scan imaging and data archiving tools.
