TOPAZ32 is a 32-channel, high-performance phased array UT device — a complete solution for your inspections. Optimally designed for Oil & Gas, Power Generation, Manufacturing and Transportation applications, TOPAZ32 boosts productivity, reduces job time duration and can lower total cost of ownership.
One of the many key advantages of the new TOPAZ32 is that 2D matrix array probe support is now included without the need of any external software. This fully-integrated and simplified approach can reduce the amount of equipment needed to perform an inspection.
With its rugged construction and airtight magnesium and rubber housing, TOPAZ32 is durable enough to handle inspections in even the harshest conditions. It’s lightweight, making it portable enough to go wherever you need to carry it.
With UltraVision touch software embedded in TOPAZ32, everything you need for advanced setups and analysis is in one instrument.
High-performance acquisitions, high speed and fast processing. TOPAZ32 is one of the most efficient and versatile non-destructive testing (NDT) instruments in the market.
TOPAZ32 enables users to effectively complete the following, all from one unit:
The advanced processing features of the TOPAZ32 onboard calibration provide optimized layouts to facilitate phased array calibration for sensitivity, wedge delay, Time Corrected Gain (TCG) and velocity for each angle.
Before acquisition begins, TOPAZ32 displays the calibration status for all channels (groups). If the relevant symbol on the display is not in green, this indicates that the related parameter has not been calibrated. Only when all symbols are green can scanning and data acquisition commence.
TOPAZ32 displays data in real time, during acquisition even volumetric merged views. With a wide range of predefined, onboard layouts to present data users can create their own layout to meet specific requirements or personal preferences.
A real time, volumetric merged view is displayed onboard during acquisition so there is usually no need to post-process data on an external machine. TOPAZ32 software is based on the UltraVision core engine so there is no need to convert files between UltraVision Touch (embedded in TOPAZ32) and UltraVision. There’s no need to export files and convert for complex inspections where advanced post-processing is required.
TOPAZ32 is a fully integrated phased array UT system. 2D matrix array probe support is now included without the need of any external software. This fully-integrated and simplified approach can reduce the amount of equipment needed to perform an inspection. Powered by high-density, long-life batteries it is a standalone instrument which can perform:
Every inspection step from preparation to final report can be carried out onboard, with no need to connect to an external computer or employ third party software. TOPAZ32 also offers a range of innovative features to allow users to enjoy greater probability of detection and enhanced reporting. The heart of the Topaz32 instrument is its onboard calculator.
Topaz32 features a rugged magnesium housing that is long lasting yet lightweight. Plus TOPAZ32 has no air intake preventing the ingress of dust, humidity or any contaminants making it ideal for harshest of environments. One of the most versatile phased array instruments available, TOPAZ32 is powered by the software engine Ultravision, common to the entire Zetec ultrasonic flaw detector product range. It can be used as a powerful stand-alone instrument or connected to a PC using UltraVision Touch or driven by UltraVision 3 for extended capability. The flexibility is endless.
TOPAZ32 can generate reports to meet every user requirement. Onboard templates are available to provide reports according to the level of information required. Reports can cover scanplans, specimen and weld information, operating parameters, tables of indication, individual images with flaws identified, as well as comprehensive reports.
Works with standard 1D PA probes which are compatible with TOPAZ32, Zircon, Dynaray and many other adaptors and electronics systems. The system allows for interactive probe detection and recognition. There are 19 different types of probes, varying in frequency, active aperture, pitch and number of elements. In addition, custom phased array probes and wedges can be supplied to meet specific requirements and applications.
The TOPAZ32 handheld encoder is a mini encoder supplied with 5m of cable and a waterproff connector compatible with Zircon and TOPAZ32 systems. It includes a bracket kit to allow attachment onto Zetec wedges.
