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® instrument.

Controlled by the industry-leading UltraVision® 3 software, ZETEC’s 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.
