Research groups on Eddy Current
Is there anyone can tell me some research groups working on Eddy Current Technology?

Re: Research groups on Eddy Current It's a big subject - most of the reseach is industry specific - can you give us an idea of your area of interest?

You are right. It is too big.
Actually, I am very intereted in the problem with corrosion and cracks in large diameter (>1m) iron pipes. There are thick coating (1cm) on the surface.

Re: Research groups on Eddy Current Our research and development group at RTD Quality Services bv. (Netherlands) is continually improving on the pulsed eddy current technology, with further developments to our RTD-INCOTEST system (Insulated Component Test)and other eddy current technologies. Another group that has conducted testing is EPRI, with whom we have been in discussions to advance the pulsed eddy current technology. Please see our Netherlands Web Page at www.rtdquality.nl or our North American page link.

Sounds to me like you should use Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM). This will inspect through thick non conducting coatings and is used on pipework welds in the offshore industry.
Let me know if you want more details
AIS229 - Multipurpose Real Time System
Latest standard & automatic real time
system developed by Balteau. The
AIS229 has been designed to
inspection in a wide variety of industry.
Composed of a shielded cabinet, 5
axis manipulator, x-ray generator and
tubehead from 160kV to 225kV, a fl at
panel & much more, the AIS229 is most
certainly one of the most multipurpose
RTR system available on the market.
Ultrasonic tomograph for imaging of concrete structures А1040 MIRA
Applicable for concrete inspection allowing imaging of the internal
structure of objects from conc
rete, reinforced concrete, different
stones. The operation applies pulse-echo technique at one-side access
to the object. The instrument is feasible for concrete inspection for
searching conduct ducts, conduits, detection of foreign inclusions,
holes, honeycombing, cracks and other concrete defects.
Lyft™: Pulsed Eddy Current Reinvented
PEC Reinvented—CUI Programs Redefined
Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is possibly the greatest u
asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for
measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation,
all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented,
high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent-
pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real-
time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and
dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also
scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum,
stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but
Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI
programs. Got Lyft?
MUSE Mobile Ultrasonic Equipment
The MUSE, a portable ultrasonic imaging system, was developed for in-field inspections of light-weig
ht structures. The MUSE consists of a motor-driven manipulator, a water circulation system for the acoustic coupling and a portable ultrasonic flaw detector (USPC 3010). The MUSE provides images of internal defects (A-, B-,C- and D-scan).
