Caloris has made available a pre-recorded webinar about eddy current testing (ECT). Jeff Podesto, Caloris Western Regional Manager, explains how ECT can be useful in diagnosing the causes of leaks and other problems that plague the tubes of older evaporator calandrias. In the ECT webinar, Podesto walks viewers through two sample ECT reports and explains how customers used those results to inform their strategies for repairing or replacing their evaporator calandria.
Specialty Testing for Precise Diagnosis
Caloris offers eddy current testing for determining the mechanical integrity of tubes after they have been cleaned of product deposits. Eddy current testing provides an analysis down the entire length of the tube, reaching places you can’t visually inspect.
The ECT measures the thickness of the metal. Where the metal is too thin, cracks and leaking can occur. The non-destructive technology uses electromagnetic induction to detect and characterize surface and sub-surface flaws in conductive metals. It is sensitive enough to detect the size of pits in the metal.
Caloris uses the ECT results to pinpoint problem areas in existing evaporators. Targeted fixes can then be applied, potentially saving operators expensive replacement costs.
