Product Description

Mentor UT – Ultrasonic Phased Array Flaw Detector

With Mentor UT, you get an accessible and efficient inspection experience. Create user-defined menus and workflows (“apps”) with GE’s desktop software Mentor Create to ensure consistency, even for the most complex inspections, every time. Mentor UT is the first UT device to easily allow wireless connectivity and live streaming, so you get second opinions when you need them most—in real-time. This solution enables you to achieve the outstanding performance you want, with unparalleled compatibility you need, bringing the power of ultrasonic phased array inspection to everyday use.

The Mentor UT is a dynamic ultrasonic flaw detector from GE designed for use with corrosion and erosion mapping of vessels, pipes and tanks. Mentor UT makes array inspection user-friendly through the customizable touchscreen interface and simplified reporting through its wireless connectivity and data export. Users can create their own apps or use the preinstalled apps and completely customize the user interface to meet their needs. The device setup and calibration are simple to learn and can save in training costs while upping productivity.

Mentor UT is a powerful, connected ultrasonic flaw detector optimized for corrosion and erosion mapping of process vessels and piping. Mentor UT brings the power of array inspection to everyday use with an intiuitive, touch-screen interface and customizable inspection applications ("apps"). Build custom apps for your inspections or use apps pre-installed on the device. Increase your inspection productivity and lower training costs with guided on-device setup and calibration. 


- High-performance Design: powerful 32:32 phased array flaw detector (upgradable to 32:128) with conventional UT channel and 20kHz pulse repetition frequency (RPF)
- Rugged Durability: stands up to tough environments with an IP65 durability rating
- More productive, quality inspections: user-defined inspection “apps" or pre-installed apps on the device tailored to your needs
- Unparalleled compatibility: easily pairs with GE's industry leading dual-element linear DM probes for corrosion inspection, linear array probes for weld and composite inspection and a wide variety of commercially available scanners
- Intuitive operation: glove-friendly, customizable touch-screen UI, and  on-board wireless connectivity and data export to streamline reporting and analysis (offline analysis software included
- Save time and resources: specialized workflows simplify complex inspections for increased efficiency and easier training
