Phased Array Probes
Krautkramer Ultrasonic Probes & Transducers
We manufacture a wide variety of reliable phased array probes and transducers for many applications. Eliminate the need for multiple inspections with fixed angle and focus options available, and reduce setup and scan times with our immersion or delay line probes built for scanning larger areas. Use our probes with Mentor UT for the best performance, or with other instruments. When used with Mentor UT, transducers with the Dialog feature recognize the physical connection and automatically download transducer information to the device.

General Use Probes
Our portfolio of general use phased array probes are a reliable choice for a wide range of applications, with 3 different connector types available for sector scanning or linear scanning. Use with wedges, delay lines or wear caps.
Weld Inspection Probes
We offer a range of weld inspection probes, including small footprint weld probes and integral wedge probes. The small contact area on our small footprint probes fits on standard single element MSWS wedges—comparable to standard single element MSWS probes with phased array capabilities. And our integral wedge probes are durable and ergonomically designed with a die-cast housing, similar to conventional probes—allowing for easy transfer from conventional to phased array inspection with existing mechanics and probe holders that can be reused.
Our corrosion probes offer unprecedented near surface resolution, with an optimum test range of 1.9 mm (0.075“) to 25.4 mm (1“) on steel. They come with adjustable wear bars and are available with 3 different connectors.
Composite Inspection Probes
We offer several reliable composite inspection probes, including our RotoArray, offering excellent acoustic performance in any altitude including overhead, water wedge probes, immersion probes, thin plate inspection probes and bolt inspection probes.
Our immersion probes are acoustically matched for the highest level of efficiency in water. They are waterproof and fixture mountable for fast inspection of large areas. And, the near wall design allows close access to edge of case (~1 mm).
Thin Plate Probes
Our thin plate inspection probes offer high frequency, highly damped arrays for near surface and small defect inspections. They’re acoustically matched to water/delay material, with a rugged waterproof design.
Bolt Inspection Probes
Our bolt inspection probes are a best choice to yield high-quality results and strong PoD for the detection of defective areas in threaded bolts. This is crucial to reducing construction failures and potential liabilities. The protective membrane enables steady coupling on rough surfaces, and they come available with multiple connector types.
