TCR Arabia now undertakes Acoustic Eye Inspection for Heat Exchanger, Boilers and Fin Fan Tubes

TCR Arabia are engaged in advanced NDT inspection of Heat Exchanger and Boiler tubes employing latest Acoustic Eye tube inspection technology to discerning users  for the safety and integrity of their process equipment. Acoustic Eye) tube inspection is Fast (10 seconds per tube, up to 2000 tubes inspection in one shift of 12 hours), Non-invasive and provides in-built computerized signal analysis tools to quickly identify tube faults (e.g. pitting/ wall loss, erosions, holes/ leakage, blockage, bulging) in heat exchangers/condensers/boilers/chillers/reactor tubes.

Acoustic Eye’s breakthrough, non-invasive solution for today’s hard-to-inspect tubes up to 4” inner diameter enables ultra-fast, accurate inspection of boilers, Fin Fans and other heat exchangers, regardless of tube shape or material.

Main advantages:

Can test up to 4”inner diameter any shape or tube material

Ultrafast, non invasive, inspection, less than 10 secs. Per tube, 5sec for less than 6m tube – ideal for 100% inspections and emergence situation.

It can detect blockages apart from pitting or punctures- useful for detecting extent of cleaning, to increase efficiency of heat exchanger

Non-Traversing NDT  system with no moving parts

Fast inspection of tubes, each tube irrespective of length it takes 10 seconds for inspection

Tube wall material independent, can be used for tubes of any material

Tube configuration independent (fin tubes, U-tubes, multi bends, 90 deg turns)

Extremely accurate

Self Analyzing  special software does automatic analysis using Matlab and C++

Automatic report Generation (in PDF/HTML format)

Can be used for tubes from 7 mm ID to 70 mm ID

User benefits:

Fast and accurate detection of tube faults and type, position/ location and size/extent of faults

Resultant time saving in taking corrective actions on tubes with defects

Faster turn-around of equipment contributing to faster unit/plant startup

Paresh Haribhakti to deliver a talk in INS Workshop

The Indian Nuclear Society (INS) has invited Mr. Paresh Haribhakti, MD of TCR Advanced to deliver a lecture at the Workshop on Corrosion and Condition Monitoring during February 13 – 17, 2012 at Mumbai. Participants will be mainly from industry where corrosion and service induced degradation is a concern. This lecture will focus on corrosion - different forms of corrosion, corrosion degradation, corrosion monitoring, corrosion preventive techniques and condition monitoring – various testing techniques for assessment of healthiness of the plant components and significance if flaws thus detected. The use of these techniques to ensure safe and reliable operation of the plant components will be emphasized.

INS has termed, Mr. Haribhakti as a recognized expert in the field of in-situ metallography. The organizing committee of the workshop requested him to deliver a talk on “In-situ Metallography and its Applications”. The duration of the talk would be for 90 minutes.

TCR Arabia undertakes NDT project at the Haram site in Mecca

PMI Inspectors from TCR Arabia carried out Inspection of Zam-Zam Filtration Tanks in Haram (Mecca) in January 2012 to verify the material grade.  These tanks are located in the basement of Kabah area within the grand mosque in Mecca. The job was carried out in the cellar of Haram where these filtration tanks are commissioned.  This inspection job was carried out by our PMI Engineer Mohammed Iqbal and the project Incharge was Mohammed Shuhab.

TCR launches ARTIS - Automated Reformer Tube Inspection System

TCR NDT inspection department has now launched a revolutionary new product called ARTIS, which is an Automated Reformer Tube Inspection System.

One of the major concerns in the maintenance of primary reformer is to predict the behavior of the reformer tubes. The prediction is based on selection of suitable inspection methods. Most importantly, the creep strain, mid-wall fissure detection and bowing measurement. ARTiS can perform all these tests at a time, providing integrated and interactive digital inspection record. ARTiS has leading advantage to inspect from external surface without needing removal of catalyst. The system measures creep strain with high precision IR sensors. Mid-wall fissures are detected through ultrasonic flaw detection. Use of gyroscopes measures precise level of bowing. More than a gigabyte of data is gathered for each tube inspected inclusive of flaw detection dB levels with screen captures, bowing and creep strain. Precision encoders used in crawling ensure accurate location of defectives and generation of 3D plots across length of tube.

TCR LEAFLET FOR DELHI EXHI

INSPECTION BENEFITS
•    Inspection without catalyst removal,
•    No surface cleaning needed
•    Automated crawling action avoids need for scaffolding
•    Faster – precise PC controlled movement
•    Full coverage across length of tube
•    Built-in water tank for ease of ultrasound coupling. No need for overhead water drum arrangement


ARTIS now allows TCR’s inspectors to perform real-time Fissure detection, Creep Strain measurement, Visual Aid and Bowing Measurement.
