Eddyfi Test Instrument Helps TEAM Perform Inspection for NASAQuébec, Canada, November 24, 2015 — Non-destructive experts from TEAM Industrial Services have recently used the Ectane® instrument from Eddyfi to assess the mechanical structure of the next Mars lander at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Using the advanced eddy current array inspection system, it is possible to detect minute cracks and other discontinuities so small that they are invisible to the naked eye.
TEAM has been using the advanced system for a variety of critical inspections over the last few ...Read More.
Axxim: Software Solution to Reduce Asset DowntimeOil and gas decision-makers are coming under increasing pressure to reduce asset downtime, according to new research released today*.
As part of our Technology Radar research programme, a survey of oil and gas decision-makers was commissioned– to mark the launch of our new software solution Axxim™, which offers the next generation in asset management optimisation.
Almost two thirds (63%) of those polled said pressure to reduce asset downtime has increased in the last year. Asset costs are also a majo...Read More.
SwRI’s CAsed Pipeline COrrosion Model Predicts Corrosion ConditionsSouthwest Research Institute (SwRI) has developed a CAsed Pipeline COrrosion Model (CAPCOM) that allows engineers to evaluate corrosion conditions of cased pipeline sections, where product-carrying pipes are encased within an outer shell of protective piping. R&D Magazine recently recognized CAPCOM as one of the 100 most significant innovations for 2015.
The cased pipeline segments that lie beneath some of the most sensitive areas are also among the most difficult to inspect. The CAPCOM software helps ad...Read More.

Light-Weight Portable Technology Developed for Non-Destructive Inspection of ConcreteMetna Co. announces the development of a new portable machine to inspect and diagnose concrete infrastructure non-destructively.
Management of the nation’s aging transportation infrastructure constitutes a growing financial burden. Limited resources are available for inspection, maintenance, repair, rehabilitation and replacement of the deteriorating infrastructure. More efficient management of the aging concrete-based transportation infrastructure, enabled by thorough and practical condition assessment ...Read More.
TS-2000 Tube ScannerTesTex Inc.The TesTex TS-2000 LFET Tube Scanning System uses the Low Frequency Electromagnetic Technique (LFET) to quickly scan tubing in boiler waterwalls, reheaters and superheaters in utility boilers and large industrial boilers.
Inspection are performed from the tube OD (outer diameter), but flaws can be detected on both the OD and ID surfaces.
In addition, both magnetic and non-magnetic metals can be scanned (as can economizer tubing).
The TS-2000 scanners have concave surfaces to match the OD of the tub...Read More.
