4.4 Data Acquisition Software and Offline Data Analysis Software
The software to be used for Phased Array data acquisition and for offline data analysis
shall be TD Scan version 19.03.

4.5 Couplant
Fresh water shall be used as couplant. The water shall be irrigated into the probe wedge
and shall give continuous water path between the wedge and the examination surface
throughout the examination.

Glycerin shall be used as couplant between the phased array probe and the probe wedge.

4.6 Calibration Reference Block
The following blocks shall be used for equipment calibration and examination system
calibration:
a. IIW V1 block
b. Non-piping Basic Calibration Blocks

4.7 General Requirement for Basic Calibration Block

4.7.1 Block Material Selection. The material from which the block is fabricated shall be a
P-1 material clad with P-8 material.

4.7.2 Block Quality. Prior to fabrication of the basic calibration block, the material shall
be completely examined with a straight beam search unit in such manner that
areas contain an indication exceeding the remaining back reflection shall be
excluded from the beam paths required to reach the various calibration reflectors.

4.7.3 Surface Finish and Temperature. The finish on the scanning surfaces of the block
shall be representative of the scanning surface finishes on the component to be
examined. The temperature differential between the calibration block and
examination surfaces shall be within 14C.

4.7.4 Cladding. The block shall be clad by the same welding procedure as the
production part. It is desirable to have component materials which have been clad
before the drop outs or prolongations are removed. When the cladding is
deposited using an automatic welding process, and, if due to block size, the
automatic welding process is impractical, deposition of clad may be by the manual
method

4.7.5 Heat Treatment. The calibration block shall receive at least the minimum
tempering treatment required by the material specification for the type and
grade. If the component weld at the time of the examination has been heat
treated, the block shall receive the same heat treatment.

4.8 Non-piping Basic Calibration Block

4.8.1 The Basic Calibration Block configuration, dimensions and reflectors locations
shall be as shown in Figure 1.

4.8.2 Block Curvature. A flat Basic Calibration Block shall be used as seen Figure 1 of
this procedure.

6. ASSESMENT OF PHASED ARRAY INSTRUMENT

This assessment can only be done when all of the hardware setup parameters have been
defined and configured as detailed in Par. 5 of this procedure.

6.1 Determination of Phased Array Element Activity
This assessment is used to determine that all elements of the phased array probe are
active.

1. Connect one of the phased array probes into connector# 1 in TD-Handy Scan unit and
remove any delay line or refracting wedge from the probe. This will be probe #1.

2. Connect one of the phased array probes into connector# 2 in TD-Focus Scan unit and
remove any delay line or refracting wedge from the probe. This will be probe #2.

3. Acoustically couple probe #1 to the 25-mm thickness of an IIW V1 block with a
uniform layer of couplant.

4. Go to COLLECTION HARDWARE SETUP menu.

5. Go to CHANNEL sub menu and select Channel Number 1.

6. Choose Probe category in this sub menu.

7. Tick [] the box in the Balance Elements field to enable this pre-packaged program.

8. Click on Balance button to start the program.

9. Inactive elements are indicated by the obtained gain value of 100 dB, for that
particular element.

10. The probe is considered acceptable for use if all of the elements give out similar dB
gain from one another. The maximum difference allowed between elements is 4dB.
Maximum number of inactive element shall be 5 (five) elements and there shall be no
more than 1 (one) adjacent element that is inactive.

11. Repeat steps (3) to (10) with probe #2.

12. Save the files created for these two probes in *.txt format.


6.2 Display Height Linearity
Display height linearity checks shall be met at intervals not to exceed one year and
documented in a form a shown in Exhibit A. With the phased array instrument connected
to probe #1 (the probe wedge is to be connected to the probe), place probe #1 on the
Non-piping Basic Calibration Block, as shown in Figure 2. Use the middle Focal Law in
Channel #1 to obtain indications from both T and the blocks bottom corner and set
them to 2:1 ratio of amplitudes between the two indications. Adjust the sensitivity (gain)
so that the larger indication is set at 100% of full screen height (FSH). Without moving
the search unit, adjust the amplifier control, as shown in Exhibit A, to successively set
the larger indication from 100% to 10% FSH. The readings must be 50% of the larger
amplitude, within 3% FSH. The setting and reading must be estimated to the nearest 1%
FSH.

6.3 Amplitude Control Linearity
Amplitude control linearity checks shall be met at intervals not to exceed one year and
documented in a form a shown in Exhibit A. Place an angle beam search unit on the Non-
piping Basic Calibration Block of any thickness, as shown in Figure 2. Use the middle
Focal Law in Channel #1 to obtain the indication from the T side-drilled hole until it is
peaked on the screen. Adjust the sensitivity (gain) as shown in Exhibit A. The echoes
shall fall within the specified limits. The settings and readings shall be estimated to the
nearest 1% of full screen.


7. EXAMINATION SYSTEM CALIBRATION

7.1 Probe Delay Calibration
Probe delay calibration shall be done on every channel to be used for the examination.
This calibration shall be done whenever replacing the couplant (bridging the elements and
the wedge), at 3 (three) days interval, when changing the wedge or the probe, whichever
is sooner.

1. Go to COLLECTION HARDWARE SETUP menu.

2. Go to CHANNEL sub menu and select Channel Number 1.

3. Choose Probe category. Remove any Probe Delay value and set it to 0.

4. Press Calibration Wizard button to start the calibration process.



Choose V1 100mm Radius in the Probe-Delay column. Position the probe as seen in
Figure 3 to obtain the maximum response from the 100 mm radius from the IIW V1
block.

5. In the Wizard will show an S-Scan view with the addition of 2 delimiters. The software
excludes data outside these when searching for the largest signal for each Focal-Law
(see Figure 4). They are moved by placing the mouse over the de-limiter (the mouse
pointer will change to 4 arrows), pressing the mouse left button. Drag the delimiters
to as close as possible to where the signals from the radius are at their maximum.

6. In the Echo Dynamic View (see Figure 4), the amplitude of the largest signal seen by
each Focal-Law is displayed (green shaded area), and the relative gate time of that
signal (in yellow). Adjust the gain so that a maximum of 80%~90% FSH signals is
achieved. If the amplitude reaches 100% FSH for any given Focal-Law, the echo
dynamic for the Focal-Law will be displayed in red. If this happens the gain must be
reduced.

7. Once the pass is complete, select <Pass 1 Complete> from the menu. The pass
number in the menu item will now increment.

8. Repeat points 5 & 6 until the 4
th
pass is complete.

9. If the acquired data for any given pass is poor (may be due to lack of couplant), the
pass may be aborted by selecting <Clear> from the menu.

10. On completion of the 4
th
pass the menu item <Calibrate> will become enabled.
Pressing the <Calibrate > button instructs the software to compute the Per Focal-Law
Probe Delay. Once calculated these are displayed in the Echo Dynamic view (in
Yellow).


















Here is a typical output for per Focal-Law Probe Delay calibration for a
Sectorial Scan.

The time curve (yellow) should have a smooth appearance. If steps
appear in this, the calibration procedure should be repeated.

11. If satisfied with the calibration output select <Stop> to exit the calibration procedure,
else select <Reset> to try again.

12. Verify that the sound path value of the radius is at 100 mm 3 mm for the 1st,
middle and last focal law.

13. Repeat steps (2) to (12) for the remaining channels 2, 3 and 4.

7.2 Time Corrected Gain (TCG) Calibration
Time Corrected Gain (TCG) calibration shall be done on every channel to be used for the
examination. This calibration shall be done at 7 (seven) days interval.

Time Corrected Gain is used to equalize the response from the Side-drilled Hole (SDH) in
the Basic Calibration Block located at different sound path. The TCG curve obtained is
considered valid if the SDHs responses from all focal laws are set at minimum 80% FSH
(allowed upper tolerance is up to 100% FSH, no lower tolerance). This provision applies to
all SDHs being considered in each channel.

1. Go to COLLECTION HARDWARE SETUP menu.

2. Go to CHANNEL sub menu and select Channel #1.

3. Press Calibration Wizard button to start the calibration process.



4. Set the number of points you want to calibrate in the TCG curve. Enter the depth of
each Side Drilled Holes (SDH), and from which leg they will be stroked from, and
press OK. Choose only SDHs that are relevant to the channel being calibrated. The
targets will then be sorted, shortest sound path first, longest sound path last. [Figure
below is example only]



5. Move the probe over the Basic Calibration Block (BCB) so that each Focal-Law in
Channel #1 acquires a reading for the 1
st
target. Use the delimiters to exclude any

unwanted signals, and set the gain so that an 80%~90% FSH peak amplitude is
achieved. The Echo Dynamic is re-set when the gain is modified, however it may be
cleared at any time by selecting <Clear> from the menu.

6. When satisfied with the gain and de-limiter settings, select <Start> on the menu to
enter the TCG calibration phase.

7. Move the probe over the calibration block so that a signal is acquired by each Focal-
Law. During this procedure it is paramount that good coupling and a constant probe
skew is maintained.

8. Once the pass is complete, select <Pass 1 Complete> from the menu. The pass
number in the menu item will now increase.

9. Repeat steps 7 & 8 for pass 2.

10. When pass 2 is complete, the menu item Point 1 Calibrate will become enabled. On
selection of this option, the average amplitude response is computed and displayed in
the Echo Dynamic view (there should be very little difference between the images).




11. If satisfied with the result, select <Accept> on the menu to move to the next TCG
point, else <Reject> to do the current point again.

12. Repeat steps (7) through (10) until all TCG points have been calibrated on the
Channel being considered.

13. Repeat steps (2) through (12) for Channel #2, #3 and #4.

7.3 Encoder Calibration
A calibration check shall be performed at intervals not to exceed one month or prior to
first use thereafter, by moving the encoder a minimum distance of 500 mm. The display
distance shall be within 5 mm of the actual distance moved.


8. DATUM OF THE WELDS AND LENGTH OF SCANNING

For every weld joint, there shall only be one datum which represents 0 mm position of the
weld from which the scanning will start. Datum shall be permanently marked on the surface of
the part using low stress stamp or dot stamp at the one edge of the plate to determine the start
position of scan to ensure repeatability of test result. The direction of the scan shall also be
permanently marked using the letter V pointing to the direction of the scan.

Each weld joint shall be sectioned to maximum 1,000 mm of weld length. On each scan of the
weld section, a minimum overlap of 25 mm is required between adjacent scans (maximum scan
length is 1,025 mm). This is to limit the file size so that it wont be too large and becoming
cumbersome to handle in the offline analysis process.

The actual weld centerline shall also be marked for each weld joint. Using a white paint marker,
guiding lines shall be marked on either side of the weld to ensure the PA probes travel in
straight lines and at their respective distances from the weld centerline.
Even response from
each Focal-Law set to
80% FSH.

9. SURFACE PREPARATION

The examination shall be conducted from the base material surface that are free from dirt,
spatter, and slag or other conditions that will interfere with the examination result. When
necessary, mechanical dressing by grinding may be used but not to exceed limitations as
defined in the referencing contract documents.

On T-junctions, the reinforcement of the welds (circum and longitudinal welds) where the PA
probe will travel over will be ground flushed to ensure proper continuous contact and coupling.

Prior to the commencement of any production examination scan on a particular type of
weld joint (either circumferential or longitudinal weld joint), a preliminary scan shall be
done on the Basic Calibration Block using the relevant setup file. The same examination
system to be used on the production weld (i.e.: same scanner, sensitivity settings,
carbide position, etc.) shall also be used when doing this preliminary scan.

The operator must choose one of the SDH in the BCB that corresponds to the channel
being used. The operator shall only be allowed to proceed in scanning the production weld
only when the signals obtained from that particular SDH in the BCB is set at above 80%
FSH and the depth of the SDHs are correct within 5 mm of their actual depth in the
block. Any calibration setups which give out-of-tolerance result(s) will require the
operator to recalibrate the examination system. The data file of this preliminary scan
is not required to be stored on file.

10.2 Post Examination Scan
After scanning for data collection on a particular type of weld joint, a post examination
scan shall be done on the qualification block using the same setup file used during
production scans. The same examination system that was used during production scan
(i.e.: same scanner, sensitivity settings, carbide position, etc.) shall also be used when
doing this post examination scan.

The data collected from the production scans are considered valid only when the signals
obtained from any of the SDH in the BCB is above 64% FSH and the depth of the SDHs
are correct within 5 mm of their actual depth in the block.

Any UT data (scan files) which are considered invalid shall be marked void and the area
covered by the voided data shall be re-examined.


11. EXAMINATION PROCEDURE

11.1 Scan Plan and Technique Details
Volume of the weld to be examined, direction of scanning movement, probe separation
shall follow the scan plan which is detailed in Exhibit C, Exhibit D and Exhibit E of this
procedure. These scan plans are including the whole volume of the weld plus 25 mm of
base material on each side of the expected fusion lines of the weld.

11.2 Straight Beam Scanning on Adjacent Base Metal
After completion of the groove weld, but prior to Phased Array UT examination, a
compression wave test of the parent material on both sides of the weld (minimum distance
325 mm) shall be performed. A separate procedure shall be established for this examination
to locate any laminar discontinuities which could obstruct sound propagation during Phased
Array UT.

All interfering partial and full beam reflectors shall be noted (datum location and distance
from the weld edge) and recorded on the examination record. Final disposition of this type
of reflector is determined by PT. Sanggar Sarana Baja.

11.3 Display Panel Layout for Data Acquisition
Prior to the commencement of data acquisition process, the TD-Superview panel layout
shall be set as shown in Figure 6. Only the C-Scan is to be displayed during data
acquisition.

11.4 Data Acquisition
Scanning shall use Weld Scan-XT, a manually driven type of scanner, to maintain constant
pressure of the probes to the examination surface and to maintain constant probe
separation. The maximum rate of scanner movement shall be maintained at 25
mm/sec. Lower scanning rate is permitted. Missing lines in the display shall not exceed 5%
of the scan lines to be collected, and no adjacent lines shall be missed. When missing lines in
the display occur, move the scanner back to re-capture the data in the missing lines.

During scanning, a constant flow of fresh water shall be maintained to provide constant
coupling between the wedge and the examination surface. Adjust screw to maintain constant
fixture between the wedge cradle and the wedge. Screw-out the carbide pin inside the
wedge to allow firm placement of the probes on the examination areas but with no contact
between the wedges and the examination surface (to avoid wear).

11.5 Resolution for Scan Data Collection
A-scan data shall be recorded for the area of interest in an unprocessed form with no
thresholding and recording at increments of 2 mm.

11.6 Saving Scan Data File
After scanning has been done, the scan file shall be identified using the following format:

[A] [B] [C] [D].scn

where: A PT. Sanggar Sarana Bajas project ID
B Item Tag Number
C Weld joint number
D Positional location of the weld length examined
E Probe Travelling Plan Sequence

12. OFFLINE DATA ANALYSIS AND SIZING OF INDICATIONS

Offline data analysis shall be done using the TD-Superview software on a separate PC/laptop. A
dongle shall be available on the person responsible in doing this analysis. Panel layouts shall be
set as shown in Figure 7 to include the following:

A-Scan from channel #1 and #2 (when analyzing data in the 1
st
probe travelling plan) or
channel #3 and #4 (when analyzing data in the 2
nd
probe travelling plan).

S-Scan view #1 from channel #1 (when analyzing data in the 1
st
probe travelling plan) or
channel #3 (when analyzing data in the 2
nd
probe travelling plan).

S-Scan view #2 from channel #2 (when analyzing data in the 1
st
probe travelling plan) or
channel #4 (when analyzing data in the 2
nd
probe travelling plan).

C-Scan from channel #1 and #2 (when analyzing data in the 1
st
probe travelling plan) or
channel #3 and #4 (when analyzing data in the 2
nd
probe travelling plan).

The analysis shall be conducted in the following order:

1. Set the C-Scan gate to encompass all of volume shown in S-Scan display.

2. Raise the bottom threshold to 16% of the amplitude color bar at the right most of the
screen as seen below. This is to ensure that only ultrasonic reflector above 20% of the
reference level shall be visible for investigation. Note the difference in the C-Scan display.

3. Once all of the relevant indications have been noted and ready to be evaluated, return the
amplitude color bar to its original position, begin data evaluation with no filtering and
thresholding on the recorded data.

4. Define the welds overlay TD-Superview overlay configuration. The overlay configuration
should closely match the actual welds bevel configuration and cross section. This will assist
the examiner to determine whether an indication is from an actual discontinuity or some
type of non-relevant indication.

5. In all of the S-Scan view available, right click to show the context menu and turn on the the
following options:
o Show C-Scan Display Gate
o Show Skip
o Show Overlay

6. In the C-Scan view, turn on the Show Overlay option in the context menu.

7. Start discontinuity characterization from the C-Scan view. Use single cursor to obtain
positional information of an indication. Once determined it relevance, use dual cursor to
measure the indications length.

8. Adjust the position of the delimiters to designate portion in welds width and combine this
with the utilization of the vertical-echo dynamic functionality on the C-Scan display. Use
6dB drop concept to measure indication length (extremities of the indications are taken
from 6 dB drop from edge of the indications).
9. For height sizing of an indication, it shall be done in the S-Scan view. Technique of height
sizing of an indication depends on the type (cylindrical or planar) of the indication in
question.

o For indications characterized as cylindrical, sizing shall be done utilizing the vertical-
echo dynamic functionality. Use the right dB drop concept* or calculation of creeping
wave (propagating on the surface of the flaw); whichever is appropriate

* Note: Use 6 dB drop when 3 or more focal laws in the channel exhibit similar
amplitude. Otherwise, use 3 dB drop.

flaw. If the tip diffracted echoes cannot be clearly resolved in any of the S-Scan views,
use the right dB drop concept*.

* Note: Use 6 dB drop when 3 or more focal laws in the channel exhibit similar
amplitude. Otherwise, use 3 dB drop.

13. SIZE AND CATEGORY OF FLAWS

13.1 Size of Flaw
The dimensions of the flaw shall be determined by the rectangle that fully contains the
area of the flaw.

(a) The length of the flaw shall be the dimension of the rectangle that is parallel to the
inside pressure-retaining surface of the component.

(b) The height of the flaw shall be the dimension of the rectangle that is normal to the
inside pressure-retaining surface of the component.

13.2 Category of Flaw
Flaws shall be categorized as being surface or subsurface based on their separation
distance from the nearest component surface.

(a) If the space is equal to or less than one-half the height of the flaw, then the flaw shall
be categorized as a surface flaw. A flaw need not be surface breaking to be
categorized as a surface flaw.

(b) If the space is greater than one-half the height of the flaw, then the flaw shall be
categorized as a subsurface flaw.

(c) The depth of the flaw shall be drawn normal to the inside pressure retaining surface
and shall be denoted as "a" for a surface flaw or "2a" for a subsurface flaw.

13.3 Evaluation Threshold
All reflectors that produce a response greater than 20% TCG (16% FSH) shall be
investigated and evaluated as per the acceptance criteria in Par. 13. Reflectors that are
determined originate from the surface configurations (such as weld reinforcement or root
geometry) or variations in metallurgical structure of materials (such as cladding to base
metal interface) may be classified as geometric indications and need not be characterized
or sized.


14. ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA

Flaws shall be evaluated for acceptance using the applicable criteria of Tables 1 and with the
following additional requirements. Unacceptable flaws shall be repaired and the repaired welds
shall be re-evaluated for acceptance.

Table 1 Flaw Acceptance Criteria

Notes:

1. For intermediate flaw aspect ratio a/l and thickness t (2 in. [64 mm] < t < 4 in. [100
mm]), linear interpolation is permissible.

2. The parameter t is the thickness of the weld excluding any allowable reinforcement, and the
parameter l is the length of the flaw. For a butt weld joining two members having different
thickness at the weld, t is the thinner of these two thicknesses. If a full penetration weld
includes a fillet weld, then the thickness of the throat of the fillet weld shall be included in t.

3. A subsurface indication shall be considered as a surface flaw if the separation (S in Figure
8) of the indication from the nearest surface of the component is equal to or less than half
the through dimension [2d in Figure 8, sketch (b)] of the subsurface indication.



4. If the acceptance criteria in this table results in a flaw length, l , less than 6.4 mm, a value
of 6.4 mm may be used.



14.1 Surface Flaws Flaws identified as surface flaws during the UT examination may or may
not be surface connected. Therefore, unless the UT data analysis confirms that the flaw is
not surface connected, it shall be considered surface connected or a flaw open to the
surface.

14.2 Multiple Flaws

1) Discontinuous flaws shall be considered a singular planar flaw if the distance between
adjacent flaws is equal to or less than the dimension S as shown in Figure 9.

2) Discontinuous flaws that are oriented primarily in parallel planes shall be considered a
singular planar flaw if the distance between the adjacent planes is equal to or less
than 13 mm (see Figure 9).

3) Discontinuous flaws that are coplanar and nonaligned in the through-wall thickness
direction of the component shall be considered a singular planar flaw if the distance
between adjacent flaws is equal to or less than S as shown in Figure 10.

4) Discontinuous flaws that are coplanar in the through-wall direction within two parallel
planes 13 mm apart (i.e., normal to the pressure-retaining surface of the component)
are unacceptable if the additive flaw depth dimension of the flaws exceeds those
shown in Figure 11.

14.3 Subsurface Flaws the flaw length (l) shall not exceed 4t.


15. DATA PACKAGE AND REPORTING

15.1 Recording Threshold
All relevant reflectors producing UT indication above 20% TCG (16%FSH) and have length
greater than 10 mm shall be recorded in the examination report.

15.2 Recording Threshold
The final data package shall be reviewed by a UT Level III individual. The data package
shall include:

1. The ultrasonic data record (original scan file)
2. Data interpretations
3. Flaw evaluations/characterizations performed by another qualified Level II or III
individual.
