Riser Inspection System,

I design, manufacture, and sell Automated Riser Inspection systems. I use a 2 channel ultrasonic unit (OEM) that is built into the system. Currently, I see only two ways to get the annual ultrasonic unit calibration (EN 12668-1:2010) completed. 1. Remove the ultrasonic unit from the system and ship to the manufacturer. 2. Ship the entire system to the ultrasonic unit manufacture. Most of my customers are international and do not want to use 1, or 2 to get the EN 12668-1:2010 completed.

Is there any other way to get this done for my customers? For example; can my company get out test equipment and standards certified to NIST and we perform the certification in accordance with EN 12668-1:2010 and issue the Certificate of Compliance. If the UT unit is found to be not in compliance then the UT unit (only) needs to go back to the manufacturer for repair.

Hello, Sudheer,

I use a MicroPulse unit from Peak NDT.

Lyft™: Pulsed Eddy Current Reinvented

PEC Reinvented—CUI Programs Redefined Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is possibly the greatest u
...
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?

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform

The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modal
...
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.
