ADVANCED EDDY CURRENT APPLICATIONS

Inspection of Turbine Dove Tails.

Advantages of utilizing Eddy Current Array:

  • ECA is ideal for surface breaking cracks.

  • Custom shaped to specific dovetail profiles, designed to target your specific “hot spots” or entire dovetail profile.

  • Minimal surface preparation required.

  • Rapid, single-pass encoded scan of regions of interest.

  • No harsh chemicals or hazardous waste as with traditional methods.

  • Easy interpretation with C-scan imaging.

  • Full computerized data recording and archiving capabilities.

Inspection of Gear Teeth

Advantages for using Eddy Current Array for mill/kiln girth gear tooth examination:

  • Drastically reduces the examination time. 

  • Minimal pre-cleaning and surface preparation.

  • Covers a large area in one single pass.

  • Provides real-time imaging of the gear teeth, facilitating efficient data analysis.

  • Improves probability of detection (POD).

  • Very useful practice for continuous monitoring program.

  • Examination results may then be used by qualified personnel or organizations to assess probability of failure.

Advantages of using Eddy Current Array:

  • ECA is ideal for surface breaking cracks.

  • Minimal surface preparation required, contributing to process speed and cost-effectiveness.

  • Can be used on in-service pipelines or prior to commissioning.

  • Rapidly inspects large surface areas in a single pass.

  • Provides permanent record of the scan data.

  • Easy data analysis due to color coded C-scans and 3D imaging.
