An immersion transducer is a single element longitudinal wave transducer with a 1/4 wavelength layer acoustically matched to water. Immersion transducers are specifically designed to transmit ultrasound in applications where the test parts are partially or wholly immersed in water, which allows a uniform and fast coupling technique for rapid scanning of parts. Focusing lens can be added to increase transducer sensitivity and performance in a particular area of a part. Immersion transducers can be focused either spherically or cylindrically upon request within the allowable focal range for a given frequency and element size.
Usage Note: Transducers should not be submerged for periods exceeding 8 hours. Allow 16 hours of dry time to ensure the life of the unit.
