tube-to-tubesheet weld scanner

I´m looking for an ultrasonic tube-to-tubesheet weld scanner
or an UT inspection system with remote scanner to inspect tube-to-
tubesheet welds for pores with pores size >0.5 mm and for lack of
fusion. To be inspected are welds with tube excess out of tubesheet
of some mm.

Dear Peter
Some years ago the Force Institute in Broenby Denmark were performing such work, they would be worth a call. Contacts are Hans Ole Olsen or Yens Grassov

Re: tube-to-tubesheet weld scanner
We have designed and engineered several of this manipulators (manual or motorized)for heat exchangers manufacturers with or without UT system with B and C-Scan presentation according to the Stamicarbon rules.

Feel free to contact me.

FORCE Technology has developed the AHS-1 scanner for the P-scan System 4 for inspection of tube-to-tube sheet welds. The scanner can inspect up to 3 welds in parallel and the data acquisition is controlled directly from the scanner. Inspection speed is up to 300 welds per hour. For further information please look under brochures at www.p-scan.com

Re: tube-to-tubesheet weld scanner
We also have a tube-to-sheet scanner as an available accessory for our IntraSpect UT C-Scan imaging systems. Such a scanner has been used to inspect near drums in fossil boilers, as well as reactor and pressurizer penetrations in nuclear applications. Please contact us to provide additional detials.

Best regards,
Randy Plis

We have an OmniScan system that is capable of such inspections. You can contact me if you have any further questions.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
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.
