Flaw and Wall thickness inspection solutions
Eddy Current Surface Probes
Ideal for detecting small defects in flat and varying-contour surfaces, surface array probes cover a wide area in a single pass. Applications and materials include irregular nonferromagnetic surfaces; defects in smooth ferromagnetic surfaces; pressure vessels, corrosion or cracking, tanks, and turbine blades; fractures in raised welds and friction stir welds; and delamination and foreign materials in composites. For certain inspections, surface probes can reduce inspection time up to 95% when compared to traditional pencil probes. Look for these capabilities and characteristics that improve inspection accuracy:
Encoder to accurately identify flaw locations and dimensions.
Position indicators that ensure the entire area of interest is inspected.
Ability to conform to the weld surface and detect pitting and surface cracks in any orientation.
Field-replaceable components to accelerate inspections.
Durability to inspect thousands of feet of welds before replacement
