High pressure vessel inspection is a typical application for Eddyfi Technologies’ advanced non-destructive testing solutions; you can readily find our sophisticated phased array ultrasonic testing, or PAUT, technology being deployed to ensure the continued safe operation of these critical assets. However, no two inspections are ever the same —and in this particular case— one might say it was out of this world. Nearly 200 steel high pressure vessels across eight NASA (the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in USA) centers required inspection to justify their continued use. These vessels were designed and manufactured in the late 1950s and early 1960s during the initial stages of the build-up for the Apollo missions. This article takes a closer look at the unique inspection challenge faced, and ultimately overcome, thanks to the Zetec inspection advantage.
