edm-slots

Dear everyone,

We would like to manufacture edm-slots for testing our eddy current sensors. These sensors are used for inspecting ferromagnetic steel (not magnetically saturated) for surface breaking cracks.

We would like to hear from people having experience with edm slots. How well do they tend to represent real cracks?

A local tool maker is willing to manufacture these slots, but has no experience in this specific application. Can anyone provide clues for manufacturing good slots, like electrode material and design?

Does anyone know of a suitable manufacturer in the Netherlands or Western-Europe?

Thanks for your help, Elmar van den Elzen

Re: edm-slots
Dear Elmar,

EDM slots and notches have been used for years as calibration tools in ET, UT, PT and MT. Some notches are better than others. PH Tool Reference Standards specializes in the manufacture of EDM notch standards and test blocks. I would be happy to help you with this project. Materials to be notched may be provided by the customer if you prefer. These items can be shipped to us from anywhere in the world. NIST traceability of final As-built notch dimensions is obtained from the examination (at high magnification)of replicas. For more info, please visit http://www.phtool.com.

Regards,

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.
