Probeswith curved contact wedges may be used to improve ultrasoniccoupling in which case calibration shall be done with contactwedges used during the examination.3.3.2 The nominal probe frequency shall be 2 MHz. High frequency(4 MHz) probes will be used to improve flaw resolution and flawlength dimensioning. Frequency < 2 MHz will be used to assureadequate penetration, when coarse grain structures areencountered.   235-029 BHARAT HEAVY ELECTRICALS LIMITED DEPT.235 – TIRUCHIRAPALLI – 620 014Non-Destructive Testing   BHE:NDT:PB:UT- 01Revision 08Page 4 of 29 P R OP RI  E T ARRYDAT A N OT T  OBE DI   S  C L  O S E D ORRE P R OD U C E D WI  T H O UT   3.4 Couplant3.4.1 Grease - oil mix ,oil or glycerine will be used ascouplant. The couplant used for the examination shall be thesame that is used for calibration.4.0 PERSONNEL QUALIFICATION4.1 Personnel performing examinations shall be qualified inaccordance with BHE:NDT:G :CRT: The testing andevaluation shall be conducted by minimum Level-IPersonnel.5.0 SURFACE PREPARATION5.1 For longitudinal flaw scanning the base metal on both surfacesand each side of the weld shall be free of weld spatter,impurities, rust, scale, foreign matter and disturbingunevenness for appropriate skip distances to allow free movementof probes.5.2 For transverse flaw scanning where the weld surfaceinterferes with the examination, both inner & outer weld surfacesshall be flush ground to permit examination.6.0 EXAMINATION6.1 The entire volume of the weld inclusive of adjacent base metalshall be examined by moving the probe over the examinationsurface. During scanning the probes shall be moved to and fro,with swiveling action of 10º to15º on either side withoverlap between successive scannings. Each pass of theprobe shall over-lap aminimum of 10% of the crystal element dimensionperpendicular to the direction of the scan.6.2 Rate of probe movement6.2.1 The rate of probe movement for examination shall be < 150 mm/sec.6.3 Angle beam/Longitudinal flaw scanning6.3.1 The angle beam shall be directed at 90ø to the weld axis.The probe shall be manipulated so that ultrasonic energy passesthrough the required volumes of weld and adjacent base material.
