Introducing the latest addition to our core range, the PhaseCheck, an advanced dual probe, dual frequency advanced eddy current flaw detector with C-Scan capability.

For the first time in the field of portable NDT instruments the PhaseCheck delivers the operator with a hand-held high-end eddy current flaw detector package, delivering C-Scan data display.  As the saying goes “a picture is worth a 1000 words” and to date “pictures” , such as the inspection data displayed in C-Scan images,  have been limited to expensive large laboratory instruments.

Eddy Current Tube Testing Systems

The ETi-300 and Ether’s suite of software solutions deliver an advanced end-to-end solution for tube inspectors. Realizing that the inspection process is more than just recording data the ETi-300 was conceived to work with a software suite of solutions, improving on-site workflow and delivering rapid and accurate reporting.

ETi-300 Eddy Current Flaw Detector

The ETi-300 is an advanced eddy current tube testing instrument for inspecting non-ferrous tubing from the inner diameter (ID), developed by ETher NDE to perform in the most demanding of environments whilst delivering outstanding inspection results and reporting functionality. Eddy Current testing has long been acknowledged as the fastest, most efficient, and most effective inspection method to inspect the large quantity of non-ferrous tubes present in a typical heat exchanger. The ETi-300 instrument and its suite of analysis and reporting software are ideal for heat exchanger and condenser inspection applications within Power Generation, Transportation, Petrochemical Oil, and Gas industries.

As part of the Tube Inspection suite of solutions we offer:

 

  • TMR Mapping allows tube map templates to be created to enable inspection planning using either photographs, drawings, or rapid manual entry

  • ETherMap is the Data Analysis software for the ETi-300

  • TMR Reporting processes the analyzed data and turns it into a meaningful and informative report.

ETherMap

Data Analysis & User interface

ETherMap is not only the data analysis tool but also the main user interface to the head-less (no screen) instrument. This versatile software was developed to be directly connected to our latest instruments where it can control and receive live inspection data in the field, or work with previously recorded data. EtherMap is an intuitive user interface for the ETi 300 operator, capable of processing and analyzing data on its own or as an integral part of our end-to-end offering with TMR. When integrated with TMR the user can go all the way from Tube Map design, inspection, and analysis to report generation.

Advanced Tub Mapping Software

In order to offer the best user experience when it comes to tube map design and report generation, Ether NDE has teamed up with Talcyon Pte Ltd, to deliver advanced Tube Mapping Software (TMR) which is second to none in its features and ease of use. Tube Mapping Software (TMR) is a solution intuitively designed with the operator and tube inspection task in mind; specifically to produce an accurate layout and labelling of tubes on a tube sheet. Upload a photograph or schematic diagram of the tube sheet and create a map of the tube sheet, assigning a number to each of the tube openings. The “tube sheet” presents the software with a graphic representation, which helps to track which tubes have already been measured, aiding efficient workflow, labelled, and mapped.

Probes

ID Bobbin Probes

 

Ether NDE design and manufacture a wide range of ID (Internal Diameter) Differential Bobbin probes: 

 

  • Probe diameters from 7.5 to 150mm, available in 0.1mm steps 

  • Dis-connectable and integral probe cables 

  • Cable lengths from 3 to 30 meters 

  • Frequency range from 2.7 kHz to 1MHz, centre frequencies 2.7, 10, 24, 76, 190, 400kHz

 

Report Creation with TMR ET*

Automated Report Creation

A fast reporting software designed to manage data gathered from inspections, with the capability to present inspection data in easy-to-read formats. Reports are generated using the simple user interface, whilst fully-customizable reporting and output are easily configurable. Report templates are viable to save time and can be built and populated by simply placing elements using a “drag and drop” method. Bespoke and unique reports can be delivered using the report-building software features to customize your reports.

Maxwell NDT Pulsed Eddy Current Technology 

Maxwell PECT

 

ETher NDE represent globally the Maxwell NDT pulsed eddy current technology (PECT) product.

With unbeatable inspection capability and a truly simple user interface, we challenge you to test the Maxwell system side by side against any other PEC system and prepare to be surprised!

A no nonsense, capable and flexible PEC inspection tool which has been developed for harsh industrial environment inspections as well as applications in splash zones, subsea inspections and ROV deployments.

Pulsed Eddy Current (PEC) is an inspection technique for inspecting carbon steel objects such as pipes and vessels, without the need for contact with the steel surface. PEC can measure percentage variations in steel thickness through any non-conductive and non magnetic materials between sensor and surface such as air, insulation material, concrete, plastics, coatings, sea water and marine growth, paint, deposits, oil, composite repairs, fireproofing, “scabs” aluminium sheeting and other non-magnetic insulation covers; so ideal for Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) applications. Previous instruments often lacked the power to be fast and effective.

Using the latest battery technology, MAXWELL NDT introduces a novel and very powerful PECT instrument with a design based on 25 years’ hands-on experience at a global Oil Company.

Pulsed Eddy Current (PECT) is an inspection technique for inspecting carbon steel objects such as pipes and vessels, without the need for contact with the steel surface. PECT can measure percentage variations in steel thickness through any non-conductive and non magnetic materials between sensor and surface such as air, insulation material, concrete, plastics, coatings, sea water and marine growth, paint, deposits, oil, composite repairs, fireproofing, “scabs”, aluminium sheeting and other non-magnetic insulation covers; so ideal for Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) applications

The MAXWELL PECT instrument is designed for the inspection of carbon steel and low-alloyed steels, which are magnetic. For magnetic test specimens, the eddy currents are concentrated on the surface directly after the magnetic pulse. Subsequently, the eddy currents diffuse into the test specimen, until the backwall is “reached”. This results in a characteristic shape A-scan: a straight line, corresponding to the diffusion of the eddy currents, followed by curved section when the backwall is sensed.

  • PECT can normally be applied to ferromagnetic steel with wall thickness (WT) between 2.5mm - 65mm (0.1” - 2.5”). Th lift-off range is 0-250mm ( 0-10”).

  • Weighing in at 7.2kg (16lbs), including the batteries, the MAXWELL system is highly portable; and with a typical battery life of 8 hours is an ideal inspection partner in the field.

 

  • A maximum surface temperature of up to 550°C (1020°F) may be inspected with the PECT technique, provided the PECT probe is kept below 70°C (160°F).
