  • R-0 and R-1 phased array ultrasonics on the 7FA rotor blades
         ----- To detect cracking on the P-Cut and Standard Compressor Blades
         ----- We have identified cracked standard R-0 blades on 30% of the units inspected
  • R-1 Eddy Current Inspections to detect cracking at the blade platforms
