Remote field eddy current testing

How to prepare probe for testing SA192 boiler tubes( 4.5 mm thick)? I have used 800 and 400 turns for exciter and receiver respectively with 3 times of the tube dia as a distance between the coils. But I am not able to get expected signal. Please tell me your suggestion on the same.

Dear Mr. Ravi,

The receiver coil must be kept at remote field zone, Which you can find experimentally by moving the receiver coil. The distance need not be three times the ID of the tube. It may be more or less. Moreover you detection sensitivity largely depends on the instrumentation. Since the flux linkage in the receiver coil is very small the induced voltage will be of the order of micro/nano volts. It would be better if you use lock-in amplifier for the measurement of such voltages.

arasu

Mrrs. Ravi and Arasu,
There is a direct correlation between induced voltage and the wire properties as well as the number of turns. A lock-in amp may help amplify the signal from the receiver(s), but I would think it would also amplify the inherent wire noise. Thus your S/N ratio may be inferior.

Re: Remote field eddy current testing
Dear Dana Ives
I used 800 turns in exciter mode and 400 turns in receiver mode. I need a details on selection of number of turns and technology behind it. Suggest me some article related on preparation RFECT probe.

es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
