New UT Phased Array Upgrade Program for ROWA & BIS Users

Posted by Ben Lapp on Dec 10, 2019 3:43:48 PM

Magnetic Analysis Corp., Sensor Networks, Inc. and Zetec, three NDT leaders, have joined forces to offer the ZMS program, a single alternative for bar and tube producers needing to service and upgrade their phased array systems such as ROWA and BIS for detecting flaw/ wall thickness/ geometry and lamination.

With an emphasis on providing customers with fast service for reliable, price-competitive UT array transducers and electronics, along with repair, maintenance, and spare parts, these three companies, working together with one point of contact, can bring existing test systems up to the latest standards. Improved inspection through-put speeds and enhanced defect probability of detection can be achieved.

JAWS 2.0 Undergoes Gamma Irradiation Testing

Posted by Ben Lapp on Jun 11, 2019 12:00:00 PM

The JAWS 2.0 tool uses a CMOS imager to provide a Full HD live image of the tool operation. In some applications of the tool in a nuclear power plant or radioactive material storage, it can be exposed to gamma radiation, which deteriorates the physical structure of integrated circuits. Quantifying the life of the retrieval tool helps the customer plan for efficient maintenance.

Refinery Mechanical Integrity on Your Desktop - at Your Fingertips

Posted by Ben Lapp on May 10, 2019 11:00:00 AM

Today, information is expected to be instantaneous. We are used to “Googling” for information and receiving instant results, sometimes more than we imagined. Online monitoring systems in refineries check temperature, pressure, flow, motor condition, and many other aspects of fixed or rotating equipment.

Some like it "HOT"

Posted by Ben Lapp on May 3, 2019 4:30:00 PM

Monitoring process equipment operating at high temperatures can be very challenging. Piping, vessels, and other mechanical equipment are typically insulated to minimize heat loss. Surface conditions can be difficult for NDT technicians to properly couple ultrasound probes and obtain reliable thickness reading as couplant can quickly vaporize at those high temperatures.
