WATER JET COUPLING (SQUIRTER) SYSTEMS
Structural Diagnostics Inc. is a worldwide leader in the manufacturing of ultrasonic inspection equipment and offers a full range of turnkey, high-resolution Water Jet Coupling (Squirter) Systems. SDI’s squirter inspection systems are designed for today’s demanding production and laboratory inspection environments.
Our Water Jet Coupling (Squirter) Systems systems serve the inspection of small to large and heavy critical parts and components common in the aerospace, transportation and forging industries. Inspection of advanced composite structures often requires the use of ultrasonic water squirter systems.
The use of composite materials for aerospace structures is increasing and ultrasonic testing using the through transmission squirter technique remains the predominant method of inspection.
Through-transmission techniques can effectively detect delaminations and other internal flaws and squirter systems are used when there are restrictions on immersing the parts being tested, usually due to size or buoyancy.
High-resolution squirter inspection systems from SDI feature robust and precise mechanical structures to ensure optimum geometric accuracy and repeat ability.
Gantry systems are designed to inspect a complete range of part geometries, such as aircraft control surfaces, wings and doors in addition to highly contoured fuselage and cabin components.
Horizontal flat scanner systems are suitable for a variety of high performance C-scan applications. These systems are designed for the production inspection of advanced composite and metal bonded components.
Vertical flat scanner systems are suitable for a variety of high performance C-scan applications. These systems are designed for the production inspection of advanced composite and metal bonded components.
These are seven axis high performance UT static gantry systems designed for the inspection of large circular airframe components such as engine nacelles. The seven axis design provides a lower cost system for components which have curvature in the YZ plane only.
