What is the most effective way to detect Casting defects?

posted in: News | 0

Casting Defects: The effect it has on Turbines and how we can detect this through Ultrasonic Testing Several potential casting defect types can reduce overall material integrity which can, worst-case scenario, lead to catastrophic failure, no matter how mature or technologically advanced they may be. It is therefore, important to test cast parts on turbines as they are likely to obtain large and unpredictable mechanical forces. Ultrasonic Testing (UT) is often the quickest and most cost-effective means of detection for … Read More

Suspect corrosion – where, why, & when?

posted in: News | 0

As you’d expect for a universal problem that presents anywhere metals are used, there are a multitude of different methods used to assess the extent of corrosion in assets. Regardless of the method used, an inspector will be looking to answer three important questions: ❓ Where – is the corrosion happening, and how bad is it? 🗣️ A very common type of corrosion inspection is a grid map. In a grid map, the area to be tested is divided into … Read More

Elcometer NDT Transducers

Through time, a pipeline experiences various chemical, thermal and mechanical forces which puts the pipe at risk of experiencing significant degradation. This has the potential to cause a costly industrial accident if not rectified, making it ever more important to test for corrosion and erosion within pipes or other curved surfaces. To ensure reliable results when testing on various applications, there are a couple of things to consider:   𝗦𝗲𝗹𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗿𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝘂𝗹𝘁𝗿𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻𝗶𝗰 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗱𝘂𝗰𝗲𝗿 Selecting the right ultrasonic transducer for … Read More
