Description

A bellows is fabricated from a 12-in. section of type 321 or type 216 stainless steel tubing. In order to ensure that the bellows will survive the rigors of the production environment, it is essential that the tubing be free of all “scratch like” defects. A feasibility study was conducted to determine if an eddy current method could be developed to nondestructively examine this tubing.
