any information about NDT by AE

Hi everybody,
Do you know how much AE is developed in Asia particulary west asia?
I don't know if they used AE as a NDT method for their industries or not?
regards

Re: any information about NDT by AE
Its a big question and you may want to define West Asia. I am assuming you are talking about from the East side of the Persian Gulf down to Myanmar as west asia.

You probably need to have a dialogue with major AE suppliers such as Physical Acoustics, Envirocoustics, Holyoyd and Vallen as well as major academic institutions in the region. The use of AE will probably be found to be variable across industry sectors. In the Hydrocarbon Industry AE is utilised in Iran, India and Pakistan on a wide range of pressure vessels, storage tanks and piping. I know some of the Tehran Universities are doing research work in the field. Countries with a strong and diverse industrial base such as India have a broader use and are using it in aerospace, conventional and nuclear power stations. As you move down into south east asia the applications become more diverse and when you get into Japan you will find a wide application of the technology.

Development of the technology in some parts of the region is restricted as some of the AE technology is export restricted.

the other part is that your question may need to be refined as many people see AE as a condition monitoring technique rather than pure NDT and as such may not realise that some, applications are AE based.

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
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

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).
