When it comes to electromagnetic (EM) carbon steel tube testing, identifying the adequate defect morphology is a challenge. After more than two years of development, Eddyfi Technologies prides itself on delivering Remote-Field Array (RFA) technology to gain a better insight into defect morphology along with the Ectane® 3, the most powerful non-destructive testing instrument for tubing and surface EM inspections.

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) of tubing and surfaces relies on several techniques which depend on the application and the material involved. To push the limits of advanced NDT to higher levels, the Ectane 3 brings the power of Remote-Field Array (RFA) technology for ferrous heat exchanger inspections.

The RFA marks the tenth technology available with the Ectane 3. Whether it is Eddy Current Testing (ECT), Eddy Current Array (ECA), Tangential ECA (TECA™), Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL), MFL Array (MFLA), Near-Field Testing (NFT), Near-Field Array (NFA), Internal Rotary Inspection System (IRIS), Remote-Field Testing (RFT), or RFA, the Ectane 3’s versatile built-in capabilities allow inspection companies to choose the optimal tool for a wide range of inspection conditions.

The Ectane 3 encompasses the latest electronics and IP65 enclosure protection is standard, thereby offering total protection from ingress of ultra-fine particles and low-pressure water jets from any direction, as well as condensation and water spray. With that being said, the Ectane 3 is suitable for most outdoor applications exposed to harsh weather conditions.
