Advanced Corrosion Technologies & Training (ACTT) is a leader in the field of corrosion detection and prevention. Our range of inspection methods and tools address corrosion before it becomes an issue.
America's businesses and manufacturers lose more than $350bn each year due to corrosion. Corrosion can cause equipment failure, stop manufacturing processes, thus delaying - or preventing - deliveries.
ACTT provides an inspection system which has been modified to perform retro positive material identification of components of a multi-feature system while at the same time minimizing the amount of insulation that needs to be removed. The system can be used to carry out the following:
The NDT tools used by the system include:
It can often cost businesses considerable time and money to confirm whether or not corrosion has occurred under insulation. Insulation must be removed and manpower must be taken from other tasks to perform this time-consuming procedure.
With ACTT's method of detecting corrosion, businesses can save up to 40% insulation removal costs compared with other industry methods. Our method also minimizes the amount of insulation removed to determine the extent of corrosion.
Our under insulation inspection methods are cost-effective and friendly to your budget. By reducing insulation removal costs, more money can be spent on the coverage of piping and equipment.
Key features / advantages of corrosion under insulation inspections:
First in our series of leading and pioneering inspection methods and tools is our electro magnetic acoustic transducers (EMAT) technology.
Ideal for many types of corrosion detection applications, our EMAT technology can be used on exotic alloys such as Hastelloy furnace tubes. Our EMAT technology is advanced compared with other automated scanning systems. Whereas conventional pitch catch ultrasound has difficulty maintaining acoustic contact with rough surfaces, inspects a narrow area, and is time consuming, the speed and accuracy of EMAT make it the superior choice.
EMAT technology can be used in the following applications:
EMAT's many benefits include the following:
Our EMAT Guide Wave technology is able to detect general wall thinning, isolated pitting, general corrosion, hydrogen induced cracking, stress induced cracking, acid etching, chromium depletion and corrosion under insulation (CUI).
