Re: reformer tubes
There is a German company " Magnetische Prufanlagen Gmbh" who specilise in this technique utilising a Zetec Miz40. Have seen them in operation both in South Africa and in the Arabian Gulf. the last contact no I had for them was for "Bjorn-Peter Sasch" e-mail address mprue@t-online.de

Re: reformer tubes
Delta Test is a service company specialist in eddy current and acoustic emission testing. We need some information about your special NDT-question to solve your problem. Which material is used, dimensions of the tubes. Are additional defects suspected?

Please contact us for further information

Best regards

Ingo Becker

Re: reformer tubes
Dear M. Kovacik,

My company and our partner Methanex (Worlds Largest Methanol Producer) has developed a LASER BASED inspection process for inspecting reformer tubes. In addition to detecting and quantifying creep damage in reformer tubes, we are also able to assist in balancing burners, early detection of flame impingement, damage caused by blocked tunnels/coffins , etc. This is all performed with our custom REFORMER 3-DIMENSIONAL SOFTWARE package.

QUEST has field inspection teams who travel the world performing these services.

Please visit our web-site at: http://www.qi2.com/field/fsddef.htm If you look at under the section identified as REFORMER TUBES you will see an example of our capabilities.

Please feel free to contact me directly by phone or Email to further discuss.

Best Regards,
Richard D. Roberts

Re: reformer tubes
pndt has developed a purpose build robotic external crawler for the detection of all stages of creep damage in reformer tubes. Refer to the news section in our wed page for details at http://www.pndt.com.au
Please contact Mr Don Searle for more details on don.searle@pndt.com.au.
