Abstract:

An ultrasonic probe was developed to gauge the thicknesses of partially wasted superheater tubes in a Y100 Babcock and Wilcox boiler. The contact probe is inserted into the 1 inch inside diameter tubes from the header. The probe is easy to use and shows promise of being an exceedingly useful NDT tool in marine boilers. Author
