RFEC Inspection of Cast and Ductile Iron Mains

we are researching methods to inspect and determine the degree of corrosion based upon remaining wall thickness of about 40 cast and ductile iron water and wastewater subaqueous crossings in Pinellas County Florida USA.

We are aware of Hydroscope and their service. Is there a competitor to Hydroscope in the marketplace?

Thanks,

Dana

Dana,

I'm not sure if they're still in the business or not but a company called TexTex out of PA did some RFEC work for us a few years ago, maybe they're worth a visit: http://www.testex-ndt.com/ .

Hope this helps,
Chris

Dana and Chris:
We're alive and well. In the past we were made aware of a Company referred to as TexTex. We were told about the Company and we believe they have knowingly infringed upon our patents. TexTex was put on notice of the infringement by our lawyers. Please let us know if they are continuing to offer RFEC services. To understand our USPTO suite of issued and owned patent coverage, please call (505) 345-1897 or search www.uspto.gov
