Eddy Current Testing

Eddy Current Testing, coupled with AES’ condenser/heat exchange helium leak detection and tube cleaning services, allows our customers a comprehensive analysis of their system’s tubes throughout various stages of the tube’s life.

 

Eddy current testing is a non-destructive testing method widely used to examine non-ferrous tubing in condenser and heat exchangers.

Effective way of assessing the condition and lifespan of tubes

 

Detects corrosion, pitting, cracks, erosion and other changes to both the tube’s interior and exterior surfaces. All inspection probes are calibrated using tube standards prior to the start of the inspection and at various designated times throughout the inspection

AES’ ET-Level IIA or III inspector will review all data on-site and provide a preliminary summary. Our Level III Certified Inspector conducts the final review and provides a complete report within a two-week period.

 

  • Includes wall loss summary of all tubes inspected, any anomalies documented, indication/flaw map, indication/flaw graph, tube bundle diagram and defective tube screen shot of any high priority tube(s) with notes.
  • Report/data can be stored for comparison with future inspections.

AES’ personnel are cross trained in all services – the same crew conducting the eddy current inspection can clean the heat exchanger prior to the inspection.

 

  • A key component to obtaining quality data during an eddy current inspection is to ensure the internal of the tube is clean.
  • Lowers the overall cost of the project.
