Eddyfi Launches a New Generation of Sharck ProbesEddyfi57, Quebec, Canada
An evolution making it even easier and faster to detect and size cracks in carbon steel welds.
Québec, Canada, April 5, 2017 -- As a world leader in electromagnetic inspection technologies, Eddyfi is proud to announce a new generation of field-proven Sharck™ probes, which are dedicated to carbon steel crack assessment.
The tangential eddy current array (TECA™) probes were redesigned to incorporate user-requested features and improvements inspired from lessons in the field. For example, the probe's active surface is now more resistant to wear and tear (up to 10 times), new control buttons on the housing facilitate one-man inspection, and the ergonomics were improved.
Beyond these design improvements, all Sharck probe setups were optimized to simplify data visualization during scans and analysis. Dedicated software tools also make it easier and faster to analyze data:
“The patent-pending Sharck probes are designed around the user’s needs,” said Angélique Raude, surface inspection product manager at Eddyfi. “They replace conventional inspection methods such as PT and MT in a wide range of applications. Through paint and coatings and with minimal surface preparation, they are the fastest, simplest, and most reliable to detect, size, and assess the depth of cracks in vessels, tanks, bridges, and other assets.”
The Sharck probe family is composed of the following probe models:
