Advantages of Eddy Current (EC) Weld Probes
In our opinion there are many advantages to using Eddy Current (ECT) Weld Probes as a form of Weld Inspection. These are:
An approved method to replace MPI, require the removing of the coating before inspection, costing both money and time.
Has approval from many certifying authorities and many training facilities.
Application specific design to suit the clients needs.
No polluting chemical / effluenct.
Eddy Current (EC) Weld Probes allow welds to be efficiently inspected for near-surface cracks.
Eddy Current (ET) can inspect welds through paint or metallic coatings.
Are very sensitive to lift-off and variations in material properties caused by the heat affected zone through a simple absolute probe.
ETher NDE can also add to these advantages with the following:
