Definition - What does Topaz Instrument mean?
The Topaz line of phased array ultrasonic instruments is used for advanced ultrasonic testing.
Phased array technology finds applications in the medical sciences and nondestructive testing. This method is good for finding flaws in manufactured materials such as those in welds.
Corrosionpedia explains Topaz Instrument
The TOPAZ32 is a fully integrated phased array ultrasonic instrument for nondestructive testing (NDT) projects and is designed for oil & gas, power generation, manufacturing and transportation applications, TOPAZ32 increases productivity, reduces job time duration and can lower total cost of ownership.
A key advantage of the new TOPAZ32 PA instrument is that 2-D matrix array probe support is now included without the need for any external software. This fully integrated and simplified approach can reduce the amount of equipment needed to perform an inspection.
