Pocket UT

The Mistras Group has introduced the Pocket UT, a battery-operated, hand-held, stand-alone, full C-Scan data acquisition system.

Its portability, coupled with its full A, B and C-Scan capability and optional TOFD capabilities, make the Pocket UT System (along with available companion scanners or other compatible devices) suitable for on-site inspection applications.

The unit boasts quick assessments of the presence, depth, shape and orientation of cracks, flaws, corrosion/erosion, delamination, and internal anomalies in a variety of structures, materials and surfaces.

The Pocket UT can operate as a conventional thickness meter (for spot readings), a basic flaw detector with RF display and alarm gates, or in either active B-Scan or full C-Scan modes. The system has a bright, back-lit LCD color touchscreen and a keypad for fast entry of common commands and data.

The Pocket UT weighs about two pounds (0.9 kg), uses the Windows-CE operating system, and integrates all ultrasonic components together in a rugged, rubber-encased enclosure. With a user-replaceable and rechargeable battery pack, the system can also operate via the included 100-240 Volt AC/DC adapter/charger.

Bridge Applications

The Pocket UT has a variety of industrial applications, including thickness mapping of gusset plates on steel bridges.  This system can provide measurements and inspection data faster for future trending comparisons, the manufacturer says.

The system uses an encoded scanner to gather continuous thickness measurements versus distance and present a color picture of the inspection results.  This increases the amount of data being recorded and completes the inspection more quickly, the manufacturer says.

Using the Pocket UT for thickness mapping of gusset plates allows inspectors to pinpoint divots and section loss in a fraction of the time of a typical gage, the company says. Data are collected faster and the scan results are immediately displayed and recorded for future trending comparisons.
