What is NDT and its Benefits
Pipe inspection of Heat Exchangers Various materials could be checked, like carbon steel, stainless steel, duplex, alloy or other conductive materials. The drawing below represents schematically the defect detection by eddy current. The two coils red were pulled over the defect and the typical signal appeared on the screen. The inner and outer defects have different signals depending on their deepness.
This gives the operator the opportunity to decide what kind of defect is in the tube. Surface Crack inspection The cracks below could be found by eddy current.
Special probes allow to detect inside cracks from outside, depending on the material and wall thickness. Eddy current offers the following capabilities: Quick, simple, and reliable inspection technique to detect surface and near-surface defects in conductive material Can be used to measure material electrical conductivity Measurement of nonconductive coating Hole inspection with the use of high-speed rotating scanner and surface probe. Compared to single-channel eddy current technology, eddy current array technology provides the following benefits: Drastically reduces inspection time.

Reduces the complexity of mechanical and robotic scanning systems. Provides real-time cartography of the inspected region, facilitating data interpretation. Is well suited for complex part geometries. NDT is therefore often used for the detection, characterization and sizing of inherent discontinuities, as well as those associated with damage mechanisms.
NDT is regulated by codes and standards according to the type of industry, country and other criteria. Many different NDT methods are available in the industry, each of them having their own advantages and limitations, but six of them are most frequently used: ultrasonic testing UT , radiographic testing RT , electromagnetic testing ET , magnetic particle testing MT , liquid penetrant testing PT and visual testing VT.
The names of those techniques generally make reference to a particular scientific principle or to the equipment used to conduct the inspection. Phased Array inspection is based on the same physics as the Conventional Ultrasound inspection.
The differences are mainly the probe technology and configuration as well as the acquisition instrument electronics. Learn more. Calibration test intended for girth weld inspection using automated ultrasonic system PipeWizard.
The resulting matrix can be processed by algorithms to produce the image. This technique is generally used to measure thickness and to detect corrosion on ferrous materials that are covered with an insulation layer, fireproofing, or coating. Buy Hardcover. Buy Softcover. FAQ Policy. Show all.
