Water Thickness Gaging in a Bellows Tube Using Special UT Shoes & an Immersion Ultrasonic System


Article Preview

In this experiment, a residual water level gaging in a bellows tube is implemented by appling the immersion ultrasonic technique. The bellows tube is located in a complex structure. Since it is located at considerable depth implemented, it is difficult to approach it from the outside working area, which has a residual water level after a drainage of the water in it, because a structure like the bellows has a peak and mold shape.
