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

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
