Calibration Standards for tube inspectionsOur experience in dealing with all simulated flaws from EDMs notches to thinning and expansions puts us in a unique position to recommend procedures and implement standards that increase your probability of detection during inspection of plants worldwide.A large list of tubing as per ASME standards are available. Encircling and sector Eddy Current coil tests perform in this manner. The product is passed through or adjacent to an electrical test coil, which has been excited by an alternating current. This induces a flow of eddy currents around the test material or in the case of a sector coil, in the area under the coil.
Non-destructive techniques are used widely in the metal industry in order to control the quality of materials. Eddy current testing is one of the most extensively used non-destructive techniques for inspecting electrically conductive materials at very high speeds that does not require any contact between the test piece and the sensor. This paper includes an overview of the fundamentals and. best. This inspection method is slow, and depending on the remote viewing equipment, expensive. Inspection of a tube may take several minutes. If a small sample of data is indicative of the overall condition, this may be an adequate test. Remote Field Eddy Current (RFEC) RFEC is a low frequency inspection technique that allows accurate.
The strength of eddy currents and other magnetic field diffusion effects depends on the magnetic diffusivity of the material. (The Wikipedia article only mentions plasma physics but the concept is equally useful in ordinary materials, a good reference on these sorts of things is the book "Magnetic Fields: A Comprehensive Theoretical Treatise for Practical Use" by Heinz Knoepfel.). Partial saturation eddy current examination method Principles This inspection is applicable to partially ferromagnetic materials such as nickel alloy or ferritic austenitic and thin ferromagnetic materials such as ferritic chromium molybdenum stainless steel. The full saturation probe contains conventional eddy current coil and a magnet.

Octo Tubing inspection is generally limited to non-ferromagnetic tubing and is known as conventional eddy current testing. Conventional ECT is used for inspecting steam generator tubing in nuclear plants and heat exchangers tubing in power and petrochemical industries. The. The eddy current technique has been applied successfully in this respect to inspect non-ferromagnetic tubes.
However, inspection of ferromagnetic tubes by means of eddy currents is more problematic because local variations of the magnetic permeability along the tube can cause disturbing signals and the high incremental magnetic permeability Author: W.H.
Van Den Berg, H.L.M. Bakker. The remote field and Near Field™ eddy current techniques for inspecting ferromagnetic heat exchanger tubing are similar in that they both take advantage of low frequencies to penetrate the material without the use of magnetic bias to reduce permeability by saturation or partial saturation.
A multi-frequency eddy current technique was developed for the inspection of SSl tubes of intermediate heat exchangers (IHX) in the fast flux test facility (FFTF).
The technique enables detection of discontinuities on the outer tube surfaces, while effectively discriminating against the interfering signals caused by the probe motion, tube. Eddy current array (ECA) is an assembly of single eddy current sensors or Eddy Current Inspection of Mildly Ferromagnetic Tubing.
book that are multiplexed in a certain order to obtain the required sensitivity. There are many different designs of eddy current probes, including flexible probes, padded probes or spring-loaded fingers. Figure 3. Calibrating eddy current array equipment.

Eddy Current Application Eddy current is a noncontact method used to inspect nonferromagnetic tubing. In this technique, the probe is excited with an alternat-ing current, inducing eddy currents in the part under inspection. Any discontinuities or material property variations that change the eddy.
Eddy Current Testing, Remote Field Testing and DinsearchTM are electromagnetic techniques and tend to be used as screening tools in order to select tubes for IRIS ultrasonic testing, especially in the case of ferromagnetic materials, e.g.
Carbon Steels. FEATURES Up to tubes per day inspected Ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic tube inspection. A new eddy current technique has been developed that does not require the use of magnets. Near field array for ferritic/ferromagnetic stainless steel (NFA FS) is an ET array solution for thorough inspection of thin-walled ferritic/mildly-ferromagnetic tubing capable of detecting and characterizing inside diameter (ID) and outside diameter (OD).
Traditionally the remote field eddy current (RFEC) phenomenon has been applied to the inspection of ferromagnetic tubes in heat exchangers, boilers etc. The RFEC probe has an exciter and sensor coil spaced such that most of the magnetic field received by the sensor is due to the field that has diffused through the pipe wall.
The phase difference between the exciter and sensor signals is. A velocity induced eddy current probe has been used to detect cracks in both non-ferromagnetic and ferromagnetic metals. The simulation and experimental results show that this probe can successfully detect cracks in both cases, but further investigation shows that the underlying principles for inspecting non-ferromagnetic and ferromagnetic metals are actually different.
Since outer diameter defects might not be detected by conventional eddy current testing due to skin effect phenomena, this paper studies the feasibility of using the remote field eddy current (RFEC) technique, which has shown equal sensitivity to inner diameter (ID) and outer diameter (OD) defects in ferromagnetic pipe inspection.
The purpose of this practice is to outline a procedure for the detection and location of discontinuities such as pits, voids, inclusions, cracks, or abrupt dimensional variations in ferromagnetic tubing using the electromagnetic (eddy current) method.
Furthermore, the relative severity of a discontinuity may be indicated, and a rejection level may be set with respect to the magnitude of.
The experiment was conducted on inch ferromagnetic pipe using the RFECT system showed good performance by detecting all defects machined on the pipe. Keywords Remote Field Eddy Current Testing Design approach Ferromagnetic pipe inspection.

In various NDT methods, eddy current testing (ECT) technique is widely used for surface and near surface defect inspection, and characterization of electrical conductive materials.
This chapter gives brief introduction of theories and applications of advanced ECT, with emphases on the probe design and numerical simulation methods.Probes for tube inspection are lightweight but solidly constructed eddy current, remote field, magnetic flux leakage, and IRIS ultrasound.
These probes are used for ferromagnetic or non-ferromagnetic tube inspection applications.The remote-field eddy current (RFEC) method is widely used for nondestructive testing of ferromagnetic tubes such as those found in heat exchangers.
An exciter coil generates an electromagnetic field that diffuses through the pipe wall, axially along the outside of the pipe, and back through the pipe wall to a detector coil.
