Wear Resistant Direct Contact Phased Array Probes

GE’s wear resistant direct contact phased array probes will provide faster, more accurate and more comprehensive inspection in applications where conventional straight beam probes have historically been used in conjunction with wedges. Typically, these include the inspection of billets, welds and forgings. In addition the probe replaces standard phased array applications in which delay lines are used. The low profile housing allows the probe to be used in applications with limited access space.

We pride ourselves in providing fast deliveries. However inventory changes rapidly and on occasion some items may not be in stock. If you require an expedited shipment, please contact us via e-mail or call our office to confirm availability of an item. *Nominal lead times vary by product.
