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
