Description

Eddy current probes fabricated with cores made of ferrite-loaded silicone rubber RTV are flexible; they can be used to scan components with contours of varying radii. A typical application would be the inspection of rocket nozzles; the radius of curvature changes between the throat and the base, with additional curvature in the axial direction. RTV cores of any size and configuration can be fabricated, thus eliminating reliance on commercially available cores, designed for other purposes.
