Boiler tubes inside scale thickness

Boiler tubes inside scale thickness which method is best
LFET or EMAT
And kindly provide the reasons with other information too.

Thanks

Hi Jagan

There is already 38DL plus Ultrasonic Thickness Gage which can measure the boiler scale thickness alsong with the thickness of the tube. So it gives you two readings at a time, one is scale thickness and the other is remaining metal thickness. Havent you seen it?

There are two types of EMAT solutions in the market. Both are quantitative techniques that measure remaining wall.
- temate TG-IS(B) is a system made by Innerspec specifically designed for boiler inspection that permits scanning the full length of the tube and measure the actual remaining wall. It also detects Hydrogen Corrosion Cracking. It works on all kinds of tubes, even if they are heavily pitted inside or outside.
- EMAT sensors. Olympus, Sonatest and Innerspec also sell EMAT sensors for spot checking of boiler walls. The normal beam technique works only on tubes that are not corroded.

LFET is a qualitative technique that scans the tube and looks for variations on a pre-established baseline to find potential defects.

Best regards,
Borja

There are EMAT sensors that can be attached to standard UT flaw detectors to spot check tubes and measure remaining wall, but they only provide

Dears

we have the instrument and the software

And the discussion about the tubes inside scale thickness measurement using 38 DL plus - Olympus , with M2091 transducer .

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
