Waygate Technologies straight beam transducers are single beam units that are designed for use with the Waygate Technologies USM Go flaw detector. These transducers are for use with parts containing regular geometry on flat or curved surfaces. They work especially well with thick sections that need to be inspected. A layer of couplant is required between the transducer and the material being tested.

Waygate Technologies straight beam transducers are ideal for general purpose flaw detection and material inspections, especially the manual inspection of plate, large forgings, billets, and castings. The fingertip model is ideal for pipe and tube, tanks, bars, and small forgings.

Waygate Technologies offers two performance ranges for straight beam transducers:

Gamma Series Features

  • General purpose transducers, recommended for the majority of applications
  • Medium pulse, medium damping—best combination of gain and resolution
  • Matching electrical network ensures maximum gain and optimum waveform for general use
  • Medium bandwidth—typical 6 dB bandwidths range from 30% to 50%
  • Typical Gamma waveform exhibits three to four full ring cycles, depending on frequency, size an other parameters

Alpha Series Features

  • Recommended for applications where resolution is the primary consideration
  • Suitable for applications such as thickness measurement and near-surface flaw detection
  • Very short pulse—mechanically damped to the limit of current technology
  • Gain is usually lower than that of the Gamma and Benchmark Series
  • Broadband—typical 6 dB bandwidths range from 50% to 100%
  • Typical Alpha waveforms (right) exhibit one to two full ring cycles, depending on frequency, size and other parameters

Waygate Technologies is formerly known as GE Inspection Technologies (GEIT)
