Eddy-Current NDT Near Steel Fasteners

Does anybody have experience and/or references on eddy-current measurements using DC magnetic field to saturate the magnetization of steel? Does anybody have experience and/or references on eddy-current measurements in proximity of steel fasteners? The only references I can find are work by Shepard, et al, at Northrup in USA.

Hocking NDT have experience of EC on fasteners. Using originally low frequency ring (donut) probes and latterly with our FastScan probe (a multi element dual frequency unit). We have detected 1 mm cracks in the second layer beneath a 2.5mm skin).

Lyft™: Pulsed Eddy Current Reinvented

PEC Reinvented—CUI Programs Redefined Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is possibly the greatest u

nresolved 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?
