Industrial applications:

Railwayeddy current crack detection of railway parts and car units (wheelsets and axle box bogies of freight, refrigerator and passenger cars, automatic coupler, etc.).

Aerospaceeddy current inspection of aircraft engineering parts (wheel disks, skin, turbine blades, multi-layered structures, various holes, etc.).

Chemicalexamination of pipelines, industrial tanks, etc.

Oil & Gaseddy current crack detection of pipelines, turbine blades of gas-distributing stations (GDS), pressure vessels, etc.

Powernon-destructive testing of steam generator tubes and headers by eddy current bobbin probes, etc.

Heavy machineryeddy current inspection of bars, wires, steel structures, mill rollers, plates, etc.

By designing special-purpose scanners, as well as including the EDDYCON D channel as a part of automated NDT systems makes it possible more effectively to solve the flaw detection tasks for various metal parts and units in different industries.

  • Nondestructive testing in the machinery industry. Bearing rollers and other cylindrical objects

Eddy current nondestructive testing equipment can be used as the basis for creation of various machinery-dedicated automated systems. OKOndt engineers have developed an eddy current system for testing the cylindrical bearing rollers on the basis of the Eddycon D flaw detector. This system provides a possibility to get excellent results in detecting artificial defects of 0.75 mm length, 0.05 mm width and 0.05 mm depth with at least 10 dB signal/noise ratio.

  • Nondestructive testing in the railroad industry. Rails

Mechanized equipment built on the basis of the Eddycon D eddy current flaw detector enables to test the rails in-service for surface headcheck cracking-type defects.

Moreover, the guideline documents regulate the procedure of the automated eddy current testing of rails during their production. To solve this task, in turn, it is indispensable to use eddy current flaw detectors in high-performance systems that are capable of acquiring and processing data, as well as results and commands displaying for controlling the mechanics in real-time mode.

Functional capabilities of the Eddycon D eddy current flaw detectors allow to build systems of a similar type by increasing the amount of flaw detectors for reaching the required output.

  • Nondestructive testing in the aviation industry. Wheels

Eddy current method is used to perform a high-output nondestructive testing of the aircraft wheels made of nonmagnetic materials (aluminum and magnesium alloys) with complex profile. Defects with the following parameters can be detected: length – 1.5 mm, width – 0.1 mm and depth – 0.76 mm, that is regulated by the normative documents of majority of the world-renowned aircraft wheels manufacturers.
