Laser inspection

One of our clients has heard of a system that would be
capable of inspecting vessels from the inside within a
very short space of time. A time of 2 hours for a vessel
was quoted to detect blisters and cracks...
Does anyone have any information about such a system?

It is quite astonishing that nobody has answered Jan Verkooijens inquiry of 26 January yet. I believe that we are many who would like to know more about such a marvellous instrument.

The description is, however, almost too promissing.
Could it be that the instrument belongs to that group of examination methods, techniques and instruments which are onboard the "Flying Dutchman" and which are sold to naive natives around the world?

Kind regards

I am involved in the development of laser-based NDT systems. We now offer two methods - 1) laser-based profilometry and 2) laser-scanned penetrant inspection.

I don't know about this "2-hour" proposal, but I would be willing to look at the application.

Re: Laser inspection
Try Custom Industrial Automation. They have a laser-based scanning service. I also heard that BEAR uses a Cyra laser scanner with their own software to assess cracks etc. from the outside of the drum.
There are some papers presented at AIChE meeting in 1995 (60th Fall Refining Meeting) on this issue. Watch Chemical Engineering Magazine (www.che.com) for a news article on this in June.
