Immersion Tank Systems
Structural Diagnostics Inc. is a worldwide leader in the manufacturing of ultrasonic inspection equipment and offers a full range of turnkey, high-resolution immersion inspection systems for demanding production and laboratory inspection. SDI has an installed user base of over 300 of its 5000 Series immersion tanks with numerous users purchasing several systems. The SDI-5000 series are precision ultrasonic immersion inspection systems used in facilities ranging from colleges and laboratories to harsh industrial environments.
Inspection of advanced composite structures often requires the use of ultrasonic water immersion systems. The use of composite materials for aerospace structures is increasing and ultrasonic testing using the through transmission immersion technique remains the predominant method of inspection.
Immersion tanks range from small transducer evaluation systems to large plate tanks. Through-transmission techniques can effectively detect delaminations and other internal flaws and immersion systems are used when there are restrictions on immersing the parts being tested, usually due to size or buoyancy. High-resolution immersion inspection systems from SDI feature robust and precise mechanical structures to ensure optimum geometric accuracy and repeat ability.
