The Dryscan 410D is the latest special applications digital flaw detector released by Sonatest Ltd.
In using the proven method of the Shadow Technique, through transmission, the Dryscan 410D is designed for the non-destructive testing of high technology materials such as composites, hybrids and honeycomb structures found throughout the aerospace, aviation and marine industries amongst others.
For such advanced materials, often combined with complex geometries, Sonatest says that the Dryscan 410D concept is simple to apply and is highly reliable for fault detection, requiring only a minimum of operator training. No coupling medium is required to contact the transducers to the test material, no material surface preparation is required and some of the geometric considerations that are applied to conventional ultrasonic detection methods can be ignored.
