Verkade NDT

Introduction

ec-works is an independent enterprise with over 35 years of experience and knowledge in Eddy-current services in the power and process industries. ec-works is among the leading suppliers of Eddy-current services worldwide and is constantly developing new technologies and applications with its management board of skilled experts.

Inspection Services

We provide non-destructive testing on conductive materials by utilizing Eddy-current testing to detect and characterize surface and sub-surface flaws.

If required, custom equipment are manufactured on-site with quick adaptations on ET-Technology to deliver effective inspection results and solutions.

To minimize defects, we fabricated our custom equipment with Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) for a highly precise and flawless finish.

Ceresist Features and Applications

Application Areas

As long as the object to be tested is electrically-conductive, Eddy-current is a very efficient tool for many NDT inspection tasks as it opens up the possibility for a wide range of tests. Below are some of the examples of its application.

Air Cooler Inspection Air Cooler Inspection
IRIS Inspection IRIS Inspection
Special Inspection of 'Crashed' Reformer Tubes Special Inspection of 'Crashed' Reformer Tubes
Welding Seam Defect Detection Welding Seam Defect Detection
Weldolet Crack Detection Weldolet Crack Detection
Boiler Tube Inspection Boiler Tube Inspection

Online Eddy-current Signal Evaluation

In many cases, offline evaluation can prove to be too time consuming as the data from the inspection can be too overwhelming or out of the ordinary. The solution to this is our Online Eddy-current signal evaluation that allows the final results to be immediately reported to the client with the use of the ec-works software, EC-Inspector.
