Intelligent ECT System
MNES offers the EPRI App. H qualified Intelligent ECT probe system for SG tubing inspection. This technology acquires readings at a high speed, equivalent to bobbin probes and achieves the refined detect capability of rotating probes. Data acquisition is 80 times faster than conventional rotating ECT probes and reliable by actualizing full length analysis using auto signal processing, resulting in no blind spots.
The system has been used in Japan since 2003. Since then, over 330,000 tubes have been inspected end-to-end (full length) in SGs by the probe. 1,927 tubes were repaired (plugged). In the US, 15 plants have utilized the system since 2010.
