OPTIMA Immersion Transducers models are the Slim Case with a wide range of element sizes and frequencies, C-Style and F-Style designed for exceptional performance in applications requiring higher beam energy and relatively lower frequencies, D-Style for use on rough surfaces and/or attenuative test objects, and E-Style for through transmission, inside diameters, bore holes and other limited access conditions.
Pencil Case Models
OPTIMA Pencil Case Immersion transducers are designed for use where access is limited,
or when small, relatively high-frequency, active elements are needed. Exacting
manufacturing and quality-control methods assure the most uniform characteristics from
unit to unit.
Slim Case Models
OPTIMA Slim Case Immersion transducers are offered with a wide range of element sizes
and frequencies. Most high specification and other precision testing requirements are
easily satisfied with these versatile transducers.
C-Style Models and F-Style Models
OPTIMA C- and F-Style Immersion transducers are designed for exceptional performance in
applications requiring higher beam energy and relatively lower frequencies. They are often
used to examine products with mill-finish surfaces, such as pipe, forgings, billets,
plates, shapes and extrusions. Larger diameter elements permit greater scan indexes for
faster coverage of large test objects.
OPTIMA D-Style Immersion transducers combine large elements with low frequencies for
optimum results on rough- surfaced and/or attenuative test objects. Larger element sizes
reduce beam-spreading and allow wider scan intervals. This series is often selected for
testing inherently "noisy" materials. The right combination of element size and
frequency can reduce noise reflections from coarse grain structure, or acceptable, small
or scattered inclusions. In such cases, larger rejectable flaws can be more easily
OPTIMA E-Style Immersion transducers are the perfect choice for direct right-angle beam
applications, including through- transmission, inside diameters, bore holes and other
limited- access conditions. Available in a wide range of frequencies and sizes,
right-angle E-Style transducers readily fit standard /- inch-diameter search tubes,
eliminating the need for right- angle adapters or reflectors.
