USR-01 Kit Testing Of Rail Welded Joints

USR-01 Kit Brochure

USR-01 Set purpose

USR-01 Set is intended for ultrasonic inspection of aluminothermic welded rail joints in accordance with EN14730-1 requirements. The USR-01 Set can be used for inspection of joints welded by the electrocontact method, for secondary rail track inspection based on the results of mechanised and quick systems of ultrasonic testing, as well as for pre-weld inspection of end sections of new and used rails before welding them at rail welding enterprises or in tracks.

The Sonocon B flaw detector which is one of the USR-01 kit components offers all the functions necessary to inspect welded rail joints and an easy-to-operate interface.

Sonocon В offers all the functions necessary to inspect welded rail joints and an easy-to-operate interface. The flaw detector complies with all quality requirements and provides a wide range of standard and additional inspection functions. Grip-oriented and light, the device is easy to operate in the field.

USR-01 Scanner

The USR-01 scanning device is utilised for positioning and movement of probes for inspection of rail aluminothermic welded joints

Manual probes and scanning schemes

Probes inspect welded joints of rails from various rail surfaces applying the pulse-echo technique.

Scanning schemes

  • Inspection of the rail web from the running surface of the railhead with 45° probes
  • Inspection of the railhead from the running surface (70° probe).
  • Inspection of the rail web from the lateral surface of the rail web with 0° and 70° probes (a complementary scheme)
  • Inspection of the railhead from the lateral face of the rail head with 0° and 70° probes.
