Eddy Current Array Inspection
Advanced Turbine Support offers many types of non-destructive testing. Methods like eddy current array inspections oftentimes do not require turbine disassembly.
Eddy current array testing works with the principle of electromagnetic induction. First, we create a magnetic field by applying an electric current with a conductor. Then, we inspect the field for any anomalies. Our technicians know how to analyze this process and identify problem areas.
Advanced Turbine Support, LLC utilizes advanced phased analysis and array technologies to perform patented and proprietary inspections. Our eddy current array inspections for turbines provide a safe and in-depth report of your machine’s overall health.
Other benefits of turbine eddy current inspections include:
- Fast testing
- Expansive coverage
- In-depth analysis
- Flexible probes
- More inspection possibilities
Advanced Turbine Support has partnered with cutting-edge inspection equipment producers to develop and implement in-situ inspections that no other inspection company can offer.
With applications that have reduced an inspection from a 4-week rotor removal to a 2-day in-situ inspection, Advanced Turbine Support will develop and implement an inspection method to best meet your needs and provide unbiased inspection results.
With our encoding capabilities when utilizing arrays, we can provide 2 and even 3-dimensional imaging to give our customers the information they need to make educated decisions regarding preventative maintenance, resulting in improved availability and cost savings.
Advanced Turbine Support performs Advanced Phase Analysis and encoded eddy current array inspections for turbines to ensure component integrity. This includes items such as rotating and/or stationary dovetails and airfoils, cases and valve bodies, gears, and rotating components for life extension evaluations.
Non-destructive testing allows your facility to operate as usual while our experts work to improve your turbines. Contact us today to learn more about our methods and schedule a consultation.
