ID pit sizing

I am looking for updated information about sizing of ID pits with eddy currents in heat exchanger tubing.

I have seen a report referring to a reverse frequency mix of two frequencies. This is an artificial way of enhancing the 40 degrees angle between the wobble signal and the holes signal and is supposed to increase the above angle to 90 degrees. Does anyone know what exactly is reverse mix?

Thank you in advance

Re: ID pit sizing
I guess a reverse mix is to take the data from two channels at different frequencies and then instead of removing an unwanted signal add together the siganl you want. How this is done to maintain sensititvity is a ggod question. You could double the height of the through hole and leave the wobble the same by for instance using two channels at the same frequency set the hole to 90 degrees in both, then conpletely attenuate the x axis on one and then add together both signals and then rotate the hole to 40 degrees.

You could also mix the wobble out in this way.

At the EPRI BOP conference in Scottsdale EPRI reported that the most reliable method they had found for depth sizing ID pitting was to use the max Y amp i.e. ignore wobble and phase.

Which if you think about it is much the same as the reverse mix.

SITEX CPSERIES

Teledyne ICM’s CPSERIES has been designed with a view to revolutionizing the handling and perfor
...
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).
