[post_content] => Users reliant on non-destructive testing (NDT) now have an additional option as Eddyfi Technologies launches the RMS PA, a powerful new corrosion mapping solution that delivers high-resolution imaging without sacrificing speed. Users of the RMS PA will discover a complete system aimed at significantly improving data quality while reducing inspection times for non-intrusive inspections (NII) of critical assets. Detection capabilities of the latest innovation includes corrosion, erosion and microbial induced corrosion with quantifiable, detailed defect characterisation.
The new RMS PA integrates the robust field-proven RMS robotic scanning head – from Eddyfi’s Silverwing brand – with Eddyfi's cutting-edge portable machine-to-machine (M2M) systems, Mantis™ and Gekko®.
The RMS scanning head has enjoyed successful deployment on a variety of assets, including pressure vessels, pipelines, storage tanks and other critical structures. It has also been used in harsh environments such as those found in the oil and gas, offshore and mining industries. According to Eddyfi, its Mantis and Gekko units are “undisputedly the most innovative phased-array instruments on the market”.
The M2M units are driven by Capture™ software that has been developed specifically to simplify the inspector’s workflow. Inspection setup is fast and easy as the RMS scanning heads are preconfigured within the system. Furthermore, streamlining inspection has been made possible by the RMS controls being embedded and functioning seamlessly with the software.
“Adding phased array to the RMS brings major benefits to its users, with a scanning speed up to 10 times faster than conventional systems at a 1 mm resolution,” says Stuart Kenny, general manager of Silverwing. “There is no longer a need to sacrifice resolution for productivity. In addition to phased-array ultrasonics, having the ability to supplement NII campaigns with real-time total focusing method imaging is a game changer within the industry. We are confident that the RMS PA will not only improve the data from NII inspections but will also reduce the inspection time and save money by shortening the timeline from inspection to report. It’s great to see the evolution of our flagship products and I’m excited about future technology developments.”
Current M2M Mantis and Gekko users can add automated corrosion mapping of assets ranging from 152 mm (6 inches) to flat plate to their inspection capabilities, while RMS owners can add phased-array capabilities to existing scanners. The new RMS PA complete solution features a detachable handheld manual scanner for the inspection of smaller areas and assets ranging from 101 mm (4 inches) to flat plate, allowing for improved manual corrosion mapping with M2M instruments.
The RMS PA will be a welcome addition to Eddify’s diverse portfolio of NDT sensors, instruments and software for the inspection of critical components and assets in key industries such as aerospace, oil and gas and power.
Eddyfi specialises in assisting original equipment manufacturers, asset owners and service companies to enhance productivity, improve personnel safety and protect the environment. This is achieved by pushing the limits of advanced NDT to new heights by featuring various NDT modalities and investing in product development. Currently, Eddyfi serves customers in more than 110 countries, employing more than 460 people in 10 centres of excellence and sales offices, all staffed by NDT experts.
