NDT Inspection of Prestressing Tendon Systems in Pressurized Concrete Containments

I am looking for an inspection process to determine cracking, corrosion, etc., of grouted prestressed tendons. The tendons consist of 19 x 0.62 inch diameter strands with access to the ends only.

Thank you

In the UK a 7.5m long 6mm dia videoscope is used for looking at the tendons of prestressed bridge supports in preperation for increasing the weight limit.

Tendons were failing through corrosion as incorrect grouting procedures were leaving the tendons exposed.

Everest VIT has a video probe that would suit this application.

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.
