Eddy Current Inspection
Eddy current inspection is used to detect surface and near surface irregularities in ferrous and non ferrous materials by inducing an eddy current field in the part under test.
Eddy current testing can detect very small cracks in or near the surface of the material, the surfaces need minimal preparation, and physically complex geometries can be investigated.
Eddy Current Inspection is also useful for making electrical conductivity and coating thickness measurements.
The Eddy equipment is light and it is therefore a highly portable technique and it is ideal for on-site applications as there is no need to remove any surface paint.
