Imaginos NDE represents Eclipse Scientific in EuropeImaginos NDE3, Harpenden, United Kingdom
Imaginos NDE has announced that it is now the official distributor of the Eclipse Scientific range of products for the European market. The final agreement was signed by Mike Reilly and Robert Ginzel (President and CEO of Eclipse Scientific) at the ASNT 2013 Fall Conference in Las Vegas, although Imaginos NDE had already purchased demo equipment and received training in anticipation of the new partnership.
Imaginos NDE will represent the following Eclipse Scientific products: ESBeamTool; ESTempMaster; ESFlangeScanner; ESPipeBeetle; ESInspectionBank; ESBoltScanner and ESFlange Solution Suite. Imaginos NDE has invested in demo equipment for all these product lines and further product training took place in November.
ESBeamTool is a ray tracing software product used for technique development and to help resolve those complex applications for UT, PAUT and TOFD inspections. Trusted by over 2000 customers worldwide, ESBeamTool is easy to use and can quickly build a scan plan for in-field inspections. It can offer very simple configuration through to full CAD and complex shape outputs, making it an obvious selection for any ultrasonic inspection. New add-on modules extend the capability of this software. Zonal, ZonalCalBlock, AScan and one for high-temperature work are all add-on options that comply with the continued industry demand for visualisation of the application.
The ESTempMaster product line offers users a full-solution phased array inspection package for corrosion and weld inspections at elevated temperatures, eliminating the requirement for shutdown time in production environments. Available in two temperature ranges, up to 150°C or 350°C, the TempMaster package can be purchased with an automated scanner specifically designed to operate at elevated temperatures up to 370°C; optional accessories include high-temperature encoders.
ESTempMaster, when used with ESBeamTool, enables the operator to compensate for beam angles that will be affected by the high temperatures, in order to correctly locate flaws – something that makes this solution unique in the NDT market.
ESFlangeScanner can be used with any PAUT flaw detector on the market and offers fast, simultaneous in-service inspection of both seal faces of raised face flanges, without having to dismantle or shut down the production line. When used in combination with the ESPipeBeetle and the ESBoltScanner, all components of raised face, RTJ and Grayloc flanges can be inspected.
The ESBoltScanner, designed for bolt inspection, should also be considered when inspecting bridge pins or shafts. This handy scanner enables encoded travel so repeatable scans are easy, and data display makes interpretation a visual solution.
ESInspectionBank supports an entire inspection cycle from project planning and data acquisition, through analysis and diagnostics, to reporting and data management. This software has already been adopted by several major North American service companies and plant owners.
Mike Reilly, CEO of Imaginos NDE, commented: “I am delighted to initiate our co-operation with the team at Eclipse Scientific. The product range is impressive and will fit seamlessly with the Pragma phased array product range. We look forward to building up the portfolio of satisfied customers that Eclipse has already established in Europe.”
