Pulsed Eddy Current (PEC) is an electromagnetic screening tool used to find degradation and defects in ferromagnetic materials. It provides a relative wall thickness measurement through non-metallic pipe corrosion.
Highly Versatile

Early Damage Detection

Increases Accuracy

PULSED EDDY CURRENT KEY ADVANTAGES:

  • Can acquire an average wall thickness of the asset without removing the insulation or coating
  • Can penetrate through most forms of insulation, including cementitious types
  • Costs can be minimized or alleviated through implementing programs allowing for early detection utilizing PEC
  • PEC can be applied in-service – No need to stop production
  • PEC can be used on bare metal and can penetrate through 10″ of insulation
  • PEC can be performed on Rope Access

PULSED EDDY CURRENT TESTING METHOD APPLICATIONS:

  • Sphere legs
  • Vessel skirts
  • Offshore risers
  • Piping near cooling towers
  • Above water hull piping
  • Elbows
  • Columns
  • Corrosion blisters/blooms
  • Tanks
  • Underwater/splash zones
  • Marine vessels
