Innerspec Technologies In-Service Solutions provide standard and customized equipment for complete applications that require specific instrumentation.The list below covers the most common applications.

Thickness Measurement


Thickness Measurement Off-the-shelf and custom solutions for thickness measurement in the field using EMAT and DCUT (Dry-Coupled UT) sensors



Features:


EMAT


  • Non-contact and no-couplant
  • Thickness accuracy of 25μm (0.001”)
  • Capable of temperatures from -30°C to 650°C with no active cooling
  • Roller kits, encoders and adaptors for different applications
  • See Catalog of Standard EMAT Sensors & Accessories

DCUT (Dry-Coupled UT)


  • No-couplant piezoelectric solution (100% dry)
  • Ultra-high resolution and accuracy of 5μm (0.0002”)
  • Roller kits, encoders and adaptors for different applications
  • See Catalog of Standard DCUT Sensors & Accessories

Corrosion Detection (MRUT)


Corrosion Detection (MRUT) The temate MRUT (Medium Range Ultrasonic Testing) uses higher frequency (100kHz - 1MHz) guided waves to detect corrosion, cracks and discontinuities on exposed tubes, gas lines, oil pipelines and storage tanks


  • Non-Contact EMAT techniques using Medium Range Guided Waves permit coverage up to 5m (typical distance 0-1m).
  • Through-transmission technique (axial scanning) sends sound around a tube or across a plate to measure attenuation and/or velocity changes to defects between the sensors.
  • Reflection technique (circumferential scanning) sends sound along a tube or plate and detect reflections from defects at up to 5m in front of the sensors (material and coating dependent).
  • Ideal for inspection of corrosion under supports and air-to-soil interfaces on exposed or thinly coated parts (<4mm).
  • Detects isolated pitting and wall loss with up to 10 times better accuracy and resolution than Long Range UT systems.
  • No dead zone in axial scanning, and less than 15cm ahead of the sensor in circumferential scanning.
  • Hand-held manual scanner, and automated high-speed crawler options.
  • Pulsed and permanent magnet solutions to inspect magnetic and non-magnetic pipes.
  • Real time analysis and storage of inspection.
  • A, B, and C scan views.

Boiler Tube Inspection


Boiler Tube Inspection The temate® TG-IS(B) is designed for detecting and measuring wall loss, hydrogen damage and caustic gauging in boiler tubes.



  • Non-contact EMAT technique.
  • Permits 100% inspection of boilers instead of spot checking at up to 15cm/s of scanning speed.
  • Ultrasonic EMAT technique provides accurate thickness readings with minimum surface preparation.
  • Only system capable of measuring remaining wall thickness on heavily corroded tubes.
  • Capable of detecting hydrogen damage, pitting and caustic gouging.
  • Works on carbon steel and clad materials.
  • Sensor with integrated encoder and light indicators for fast visual alert to the operator.
  • Exclusive boiler mapping software application permits easy visualization of boiler walls with results of inspection for fast analysis and interpretation.
  • Proven technique with hundreds of boilers and thousands of kilometers of inspected tube worldwide.

Weld Inspection


Weld Inspection Off-the-shelf and custom sensor for weld inspections in the field using EMAT technology


Features


  • Shear Vertical (SV) EMAT sensors for fast screening &defect detection without couplant
  • Shear Horizontal (SH) EMAT sensors for inspection of austenitic welds
  • Guided wave sensors for inspection of thin welds (0.5mm to 6mm thick)

Stress


Stress The temate® SM provides internal stress measurements on plates, tubes, train wheels and other structures using two linearly polarized shear horizontal waves at 90 degrees.
The temate® SM can be customized to meet your unique inspection needs.


  • Non-contact EMAT technique
  • EMAT sensors do not mechanically load the surface under test allowing a greater precision of measurement of ultrasonic arrival time variation
  • No “beam steering” errors caused by misalignment of the transducer with the surface
  • Capable of penetrating surface coatings or corrosion which may scatter or reflect waves generated from outside the part
  • Custom software provides actual stress readings (MPa or PSI)
  • Portable and integrated options available (including tematePowerBox H). Check catalog of standard sensors for portable options

Bolt Load


Bolt Load The temate BL is used to measure bolt-load by measuring ultrasonic Time-Of-Flight corresponding to changes in bolt elongation. The temate BL can be customized to meet your unique inspection needs.


  • Non-contact EMAT technique
  • EMAT sensors do not mechanically load the surface under test allowing a greater precision of measurement of ultrasonic arrival time variation
  • Capable of working on non-flat bolt heads
  • Double wave technique (using SH and L wave sensor) permits determining the load without knowing the original length of the bolt
  • Custom software provides actual load readings (MPa or PSI)
  • Portable and integrated options available (including tematePowerBox H). Check catalog of standard sensors for portable options
