Special Version of the Phased Array Calibration Standard (PACS™) with 0.060" diameter Side-drilled Holes for use with AWS requirements. Block is used for angle beam verification, probe angle exit point, calibration for wedge delay, sensitivity, DAC/TCG for thicknesses up to 2".
The three radii (0.500, 1.000, 2.000") allow for exit point verification, velocity, and sound path calculations. Block contains five holes at 0.060" diameter drilled through the 1.000" width, located at 0.100, 0.200, 0.400, 0.600, 0.800, 1.200, 1.400, 1.600, 1.800, and 1.900" from the respective scanning surface. Generous hole spacing eliminated "ghost" images from adjacent holes. Also includes an engraved scale from 30° to 70° associated with the 0.800" hole for beam angle verification.
Dimensions: 18.0" x 2.0" x 1.0"
