Conductivity Measurement of Steel

Greetings

I have been approached by a steel rolling company who require conductivity measurement of some of their products.

Does anyone know of specific equipment that I can source as well as techniques or procedures that I should use?

Regards,

Keith

Re: Conductivity Measurement of Steel
It depends since you talk about steel.
Usually, conductivity measurements are done by eddy current conductivity gauge for non-magnetic metals. But for steel, it is magnetic and the relative permeability might vary depending on the manufacturing factors. And permeabiliy affects eddy-current measurements a lot. So it is a challenging task for eddy current measurements.

I think the most possible soultion is the DCPD(direct current potential drop) measurements, which is also called four-point measurements. The beautiful part of applying DCPD method is that it does not depend on permeability of steel. So it can be used for magnetic metals.

Google for four-point measurement instrument or DCPD, you should find several manufacturers and talk to them for further information.

Hope this will help.

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?
