Model QS Angle-Beam Transducers
Model QS features Quick Swap screw-in wedge attachment. They are available with top-mounted Microdot (MD) or new MCX low-profile swivel connectors. Piezocomposite (C series*) offer superior penetration and signal-to-noise ratio in highly-attenuative and coarse-grain materials.
and their wedges generate shear (transverse) waves at the specified angle in a given test material to detect flaws that cannot be detected by a straight-beam transducer. Typical applications include weld inspection, tube and pipe, shafts, turbine blades, and wheel rims. Shear waves are produced by refracting a longitudinal wave in a precision machined acrylic wedge that also minimizes wedge noise.
