about country series
The petrochemical industry is largely concentrated in the Haifa Bay, and there are chemical sites on the Dead Sea too, like the new joint venture between VW and Dead Sea Work with their magnesium plant. A new refinery scheduled for construction in Alexandria, Egypt offers exciting potential for market expansion.
Israel's plastics industry is quite large, and still growing, with a 4 billion $ US turnover in 1995. Unfortunately, there is no real NDT here yet, although there is a wall thickness measurement industry. An interesting application with a 3-layer in-line measurement and feedback system is presently is being installed now, and we were told that an x-ray flaw detection at the extrusion die was tried at the Plassim plant.
Agriculture is another large and famous industry; as everywhere, NDT is no big deal there, but we did find a special UT application for testing avocados - this was a development patented by Dr. A. Mizrach for AvoTec Ltd. Fruit Sorting Devices and the Netanya Hamania National Assn. for R&D. Company manager Amitai Keren , M.Sc. told us that in April 1995 the first prototype was successfully installed in an Israeli supermarket. The system works with Ultrasound at 50khz, contains 3 or (in the latest version, just 2) transducers for angle through transmission and evaluation of noise attenuation. The sound penetrates less than 10 mm under the surface. Within the next 3 months 30 units will be shipped to Europe for further tests.
Service inspection industry applications are present in all the above-mentioned industries. Israel also has also a railway  system, though not a large one, that needs intensive services. 10 national airlines give many of their tasks to the inspection service companies. One service company complained that the LCD Screens used by the new digital equipment have the disadvantage of being difficult to read in Israel's bright sunlight. At an NDT Laboratory in Jerusalem we met Dr. Tanja Chernobelsky , who told us that they are the problem solvers for Israeli industry and also suppliers of specially designed UT Inspection Kits to Boeing.
