Automated Ultrasonic (UT)
Tube Corrosion Mapping
provides complete services for tube inspection of heat exchangers, boilers
and coolers. Apart from the EC and RFT methods Envirocoustics also
provides automated ultrasonic inspections.
With the use of
completely automated UT systems, designed for rapid measurements, C-Scan
type displays are provided from small or medium diameter pipes.
specially retrofitted probe is inserted inside the tube, together with
water supply (as coupling material). The ultrasound is emitted vertical
(for corrosion inspection), or at an angle (from 45° to 70°, for the
detection of imperfections as microcracks).

measurements acquired are recorded and filed inside the system, separately
for each tube. The final report contains analyzed data in colored maps or
in Excel worksheets. The report contains also the highest, the lowest and
the average thickness values for each tube wall.

up to 100mm per second, depending on the desirable resolution.
The probe for data
recording is inserted completely automated with a 300mm per second speed
depending on the required measurement precision.
Complete 2 or 3
