Setting the latest innovation
A Game Changer: RET Walking Stick
Q Rail NDT has developed the ﬁrst RET walking stick in the UK. Q Rail NDT has developed, designed and manufactured its innovative QuRET, in conjunction with Ether NDE ﬂaw detection unit. It has successfully carried out a series of RCF/head checks and GCC evaluations with remarkable accuracies, consistencies and detection speed. QuRET, can detect complicated defects in one pass of the railhead using WideScan© Rail probe that has been characterized using artiﬁcial ﬂaws of diﬀerent sizes, orientation and probe-to-rail-clearance. The test rail contains 9 EDM notches, machined on the gauge side at between 18˚ to 22˚ to the vertical, simulating a series of RCFs with varying depths of: 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0 mm. This will be used to determine sensitivity levels that may be achieved using this probe. The active face of the probe, with an 80 mm scan width, can easily be contoured to suit diﬀerent railhead proﬁles.
