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
