Innerspec Technologies In-Service Solutions provide standard and customized equipment for complete applications that require specific instrumentation. The list below covers the most common applications.
MRUT describes a suite of techniques used to perform fast scanning on exposed tubes and tanks as well as inspections of inaccessible areas from a fixed position.
Non-contact measurements from -30ºC to 650ºC without couplant, fast scanning, with EMAT. High-accuracy thickness measurement for metals and non-metals without couplant with DCUT.
Stress measurement on railroad wheels, pipelines and plates.
Inspection of welds with Shear Vertical, Shear Horizontal and Guided Waves.
Bolt load measurement without couplant
Thickness measurement of boiler tube walls, HCC detection.
EMAT In-Line Inspection (ILI) Tool for Crack and Coating Disbond Detection. Jointly developed with TD Williamson.
Quantitative way to inspect a material where oxidation or erosion has reduced its thickness.
Acoustic Emission technique allows early detection and monitoring of active corrosion in assets.
The use of composite materials is driving a need for new NDT techniques that can scan large structures and provide quantitative data on the material integrity.
Leak detection by means of Non Destructive Evaluation tools is based recording acoustic emission signals generated by the turbulent flow in the leak hole.
It is important to characterise failure modes in order to improve reliability of composite materials which are part of aeroplane or wind turbine’s subsystems.
Insulators are subjected to bending forces that generate longitudinal and transverse-shear cracks that are generally initiated in the composite material.
