Applied Technical Services offers heat exchanger testing as part of our wide range of nondestructive testing services. Our NDT field technicians can thoroughly test heat exchanger tubes and verify that they operate safely in accordance with applicable codes and standards.
A Proactive Approach to Heat Exchanger Maintenance
Typical Heat Exchanger Testing Findings:
Heat exchangers can vary from operation to operation; subsequently, there is no one “catch-all” test method to satisfy every circumstance. ATS can nondestructively test both ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic tubes using several proven NDT methods:
Used for non-ferromagnetic tubing, eddy current testing (ECT) detects and characterizes surface flaws such as cracking and voids. ECT creates a magnetic field with electricity and magnetism onto the conductive metal surface. Variations in the electrical conductivity readings typically indicate an irregularity.
Internal Rotary Inspection System (IRIS)
IRIS can be used to test the outside and interior diameter of both ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic heat exchanger tubes for corrosion. IRIS probes use rotating mirrors that send an ultrasonic pulse around a helical path to produce a scan and accurately measure wall thickness and metal loss.
