CHIME is not so much an equipment but a technique based on the correct transducers, wave modes, data display and interpretation. The technique was developed by the HOIS JIP when it was part of AEA Technology. HOIS 2000 is now part of ESR Technology based in Abingdon Oxfordshire.

As indicated in an earlier posting there are published papers on the technique and some of the computer based UT system manufacturers now offer CHIME capabilities.

Re: CHIME
Try AGR Field Operations, we supply equipment and software for the CHIME technique. Our Aberdeen and Bergen offices also provide site service using CHIME amongst other NDT services. The data needs to be processed & presented in a computer generated format that would not be possible on conventional flaw detectors.

Re: CHIME
CHIME is manufactured by ESR (Was AEA Technology) They could provide you with equipment and a license to use CHIME.

3 companies currently have a license to use this equipment.

Good day MJ,

Olympus (RD Tech, Canada) is manufacturing equipment with CHIME software. It is user friendly too. It is no other than Olympus multi scan equipment with TOFD, CHIME, Eddy Current (Surface scanning), etc. Hope you're MJ of Malaysia. If so, contact Olympus Singapore. They can help you

Regards,
