GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies Introduces ApolloGE Inspection Technologies GmbH310, Hürth, Germany
Apollo multi-channel eddy current system improves inspection speed and efficiency
Billerica, Mass. April 23, 2009 GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies introduces Apollo for tube inspection for use in utility, refinery, and other industrial facilities requiring eddy current inspection of heat exchangers and condensers. Apollo is designed specifically for in service eddy current tube inspection, increasing inspection speed, and providing operational efficiency in the harsh environments found in power plants and oil & gas facilities. Along with the world-class technology Apollo brings to the market, the product is also backed with world-class service and support located across the globe.
We are excited to bring Apollo to the market as a vital part of the larger eddy current solution GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies is developing, says Dave Jankowski, Eddy Current Business Leader at GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies. Organizations demand the highest quality products and high quality support. With the Apollo we are delivering both.
Flexibility is key with Apollo, which can be used in both multiplexed and simultaneous injection modes. The software behind it is industry proven for increased productivity and is easy to use for small inspection scopes, while still having the power required supporting large-scale inspections. Its lightweight design and digital capabilities are well suited for simple single person operations as well as large outages where multiple testers and large data rooms are required. Its durability and portability make it ideal for applications such as ferrous and non-ferrous in service tube testing and surface component testing
Additional features include full signal capture, configurability up to 1024 channels and 256 frequencies, a wide frequency range of 1 Hz to 10 MHz and automatic gain control.
