ZETEC Inc. has successfully qualified the ZIRCONTM portable
phased array UT System for the examination of Dissimilar
Metal (DM) welds. Since qualifying its first inspection
technique in 2004, ZETEC has continuously worked with the
Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) to push back the
limits of challenging applications. Using lessons learned from
years of field experience, ZETEC has now qualified an
improved solution for encoded phased array UT examination
of DM piping welds using either the ZIRCON, its latest portable PA UT system, or the powerful DYNARAY®
Controlled by the industry-leading UltraVision® 3 software, ZETECs state-of-the-art instruments
allow for better focusing, improved data quality and increased inspection efficiency. The inspection solution is
qualified for wall thicknesses from 0.210 to 6.50 (5,3 to 165,1 mm) according to ASME Code Section XI,
Appendix VIII. For the benefit of the industry, candidates qualified to previous versions of the ZETEC/EPRI
procedure are automatically qualified to this new, improved procedure.
ZETEC is committed to providing the best solutions to the nuclear power. Our technical expertise and highperformance
systems are born out of many years serving the nuclear industry, and we are proud of this latest
contribution. said Guy Maes, Sales Director for Power Generation.
