Erosion mapping - In situ Boiler tubes

Looking for erosion mapping of Boiler tubes, 76,51mm OD and 4mm Thickness.The Boiler is in operation for 7 years. The total length of the boiler tubes to be mapped is @1000 meters. The mapping to be done by either by automated ultrasonics (or)Eddy current/Low frequency electro magnetic based principle.

Please revert back.

Re: Erosion mapping - In situ Boiler tubes
Good Day Venkat,

You may want to consider using the LOTIS laser inspection technique. The LOTIS has been used for 18 years around the world to inspect boilers in the Utility, Petrochemical, Marine, Pulp&Paper and Military industries. This process can very accurately inspect the full length of the boiler tube up to a maximum length 22 meters per tube with unlimited accumulative length. The LOTIS can provide very high resolution 3D images of the tubes condition with accuracy’s of +/-0.05mm (0.002”). Additional information on the process can be found at http://www.qi2.com
