Re: EDDY CURRENT/IRS Dear Jimmy,
i am also doing the same research as you are, And i have found that R/D Tech provides MS 5800 which can be used to perform eddy current, Iris as well as MFL(Magnetic Flux leakage), i dont know much about it yet, as i already told u i am also like you. however i will foward u any more info if you interested.
And i also hope you will also share your findings with me regarding such equipment, so i would be ina better condition to select the best one for my company's inspection needs.
Best Wishes

Re: EDDY CURRENT/IRS Hi
Your finding is right.There are four major tube testing methods viz.eddy current(for non-feromagnetic)Remote Field eddy current testing-RFET(for ferrous tubes,MFL-for ferros ,finned tubes and IRIS -for any tube material.Normally we are doing any one from-ET,RFET or MFL and for confirmation of findings we use IRIS.R/D tech has a range of equipments which could do all the four methods.MS 5800 and TC 5700 are the latest in their series.I have used both of them and I find TC 5700 more reliable and usefriendly eventhough MS 5800 is the latest.
If u have anymore questions pls mail me

Gentlemen,

R/D Tech (which is now owned by Zetec, which is in turn owned by Roper Industries) has been making test gear for a number of years. While the advantages of a multitest unit are numerous, using one unit to do all can have its disadvantages as well. For instance, if your unit's power supply goes down, ALL of your testing ability goes down with it. Modularity allows the user to add features as they are needed (and can be paid for), but again, everything is contained in one unit. Many of our customers prefer having separate systems for reliability reasons. When deciding which system to use, remember that detection of cracking in thin-walled tubes is not what IRIS should be used for. Typically, that requires ET or RFT depending upon the material. IRIS Inspection Systems (http://www.iris-inspection.com/) produces an excellent system that is sold worldwide. Contact Ken Miertschin. CoreStar is a manufacturer of ET and RFT inspection gear that is controlled via EtherNet/PC. (www.corestar-corp.com). We have numerous systems deployed throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Pan American Industries (http://www.panamiris.com/) also produces an IRIS system. Contact Mike Birchall.

Re: EDDY CURRENT/IRS Feel I need to comment on the below message thread - which provides an EXCELLENT summary on the METHODS available to peform tube inspections.

NDT Automation provides a FULL C-SCAN based tube inspection system - TubeScan - which is an "IRIS-LIKE" system (in that it uses a rotating mirror) - but since it is FULLY ENCODED - TubeScan can provide a TRUE C-SCAN image and RECORD of the tube inspection. Also, since it is a true C-Scan based system, angled mirrors can be used to produce ultrasonic shear - which in turn can be used in situations which IRIS CANNOT- to detect circumferential or longitudinal cracking - and (in one study) has been used to statistically detect "micro-cracking" (in titanium tubes).

You can follow the link below (or contact me directly) to get more information about TubeScan technology.

Re: EDDY CURRENT/IRS R/D was purchased by Zetech????? when..

Only a part of R/D as far as I know.

The new info is as replied by Mr. Neil Burleigh is correct.

M/S 5800 was personally used by me and foud as highly relevent instrument.

though all techniques are combined togather, it is not a problame to get as an Isolated machines in seperate modules like ECT RFT MFL or IRIS.

if you need any info in India Pl contact Mr.Pramo0d Michal from Blue Star for all your sales quarries.

if you are elsewhere then long on to www.rd-tech.com and send mail with refernece name to Mr. Calr Marciar
for better and correct answers.
Thanks

Re: EDDY CURRENT/IRS
Thanks Mic, for making the correction on R/D Tech. Here are additional facts about the company:
On June 1 2005, Olympus Corporation acquired R/D Tech which resulted in the formation of a new business called Olympus NDT. Olympus NDT comprises all companies affiliated with R/D Tech at the time of the acquisition including Panametrics-NDT™, NDT Engineering, and Staveley NDT Technologies. The new company is headquartered in Waltham, MA, USA.

In 2004, Roper (owner of Zetec) acquired only the Power Generation division of R/D Tech.
