|Title:||BOREHOLE ACOUSTIC LOGGING RECEIVER QUALITY CONTROL AND CALIBRATION|
A method and system of performing quality control for a downhole tool. An acoustic source is employed to generate a Stoneley wave, and acoustic receivers generate signals indicative of the Stoneley wave. A reference value is calculated from the signals to assess the quality of the receivers. The reference value may be for a selected receiver or a selected receiver ring. The reference value is compared to a threshold deviation to determine if the reference value is outside the threshold deviation. If the reference value is outside of the threshold deviation, the deviation for one of the selected receiver or the selected receiver ring is corrected.
