UT detection of SG tube sheet cracks

I need information about the UT technique for detection axial cracks in the tube sheet of horizontal steam generator of NPP WWER 440 type. Material of tube sheet is Cr18N10T. The tube sheet has cylindrical shape with inner diameter 800mm and the wall thickness 135mm. Cracks may start from inner surface or from the holes of tube sheet. Inspection possibilty is only from inner side of tube sheet.

.
It may be possible to supply special tube to tube sheet scanner for this geometry using conventional ultrasonic equipment.
Please provide detail and sizes for consideration.

Re: UT detection of SG tube sheet cracks
Dera Sir,,

A scanner for WWER steam generator inspection has already been made for the P-scan System 4 and is used by one of our customers. The scanner can be seen at www.p-scan.com under the "Spec. applications scanners" tab. If you provide me with you address I can forward a CD showing the operation of the 5-axis scanner.

Regards

Leif Jeppesen

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?

...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
