Dry-Coupled Ultrasonic Testing: An Effective, Yet Underutilized NDE Method
December 30, 2015 | Article
A new family of piezoelectric transducers has recently been developed to withstand very high voltages and can be efficiently coupled through rubber with no need for liquid couplant. These DCUT transducers can be used to inspect metals, composites, and any material suited for ultrasound propagation with the following advantages....
Expanding the MRUT capabilities of the Innerspec PowerBox H instrument
October 22, 2015 | Press Release
Innerspec is introducing a hardware and software upgrade for their PowerBox H, the first high-power portable EMAT instrument in the market, to improve its MRUT (Medium Range UT) application. The MRUT technique uses guided waves with a typical inspection range between 0.1m (4”) and 5m (200”)
In-Service Inspections Using EMAT and MRUT
August 27, 2015 | Article
Readers were previously introduced to some of the practical advantages of EMAT Ultrasonic Testing (UT) in the March/April 2013 and July/August 2013 issues of Inspectioneering Journal. In this article, I will cover the practical advantages of EMAT for in-service applications using Medium Range Ultrasonic Testing (MRUT).
Portable Corrosion Detection System Qualified by Oil Majors.
July 6, 2015 | Press Release
We are pleased to announce that our MRUT (Medium Range UT) hand-held scanner and Innerspec PowerBox H instrument have successfully passed several qualification tests in North America and the Middle East, and it is now standard equipment for corrosion detection by most oil majors. The Innerspec PowerBox H is the first portable, battery-operated instrument that can run EMAT (bulk and guided waves) and conventional piezoelectric transducers. This system complements our automated MRUT system which has been in the market since 2008.
