Alexandro,

You only speak of the surface layer, but don't mention the material used in the remainder of the tube.

One thing for sure, the ferrous sulfate layer will influence the Eddy Current because of the constant variation in permeability. I would therefore recommend the use of RFT for this inspection.

Presence any Fe content in a tube may influence the magnetic properties.
It require a DC coil or permanent magnet to saturate the tube before Eddy testing.

****RFET, MFL and IRIS are recommended**

The number of tubes is 15,000, the predominant material of the tubes is aluminum brass. There is another zone that has nickel cupro, but it is around 5% of the total of tubes

Conformable wedge transducer

The conformability is obtained with a flexible membrane filled with water between the transducer and
...
the inspected component. The coupling between the membrane and the component requires a small quantity of water or couplant. The conformable wedge combines the acoustic performance of immersion technique with good coupling and low attenuation.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
