Infrasense and BDI Perform GPR HCP Surveys in Norfolk, Virginia
Posted: 2018-11-26Infrasense and BDI mobilized to Norfolk, Virginia to complete testing on the 1800-foot long bridge deck. The methods of testing included GPR, HCP, coring, and chloride sampling. Testing was performed in September on 14 select panels of the bridge deck, with the goal of identifying rebar depth and spacing, and areas of probable corrosion.
The GPR data was collected using a 1.5 GHz ground-coupled antenna system, manufactured by GSSI in the United States. Once field work was completed, experienced analysts ...Read More.

Six Advantages of the MagnaFORM Probe Over Penetrant Testing in Stainless Steel
Posted: 2018-11-13Using penetrant testing to inspect stainless steel pipes for stress corrosion cracking and welds for cracks can be a slow job. Many pipes are rough, dirty, or painted. Before penetrant testing can be used, the pipes must be smoothed and cleaned. If they’re painted, it must be painstakingly stripped off and the pipe later repainted. Luckily, there’s a better way.
Here are 6 advantages of the MagnaFORM™ eddy current array (ECA) probe over penetrant testing.
1. No more paint removal and repainting
The M...Read More.

New Technologies in Inductive Displacement Measurements
Posted: 2018-11-13In contrast to conventional inductive sensors, displacement sensors based on eddy currents stand out due to their high accuracy, bandwidth and temperature stability. Furthermore, this measuring principle enables measurements on ferro- or non-ferromagnetic objects. The sensors are also resistant to harsh industrial environments including dirt, oil, pressure and fluctuating temperatures.
The eddyNCDT 3060 is a new, powerful eddy current measurement system for fast, high precision displacement measurements....Read More.
