Wherever Heat Exchangers, Coolers, Boilers or other applications with tubes are used, you’ll find that they all experience defects over the years. Defects like pitting, blockages, holes and cracking are often causing problems in the work process.
Over the years a lot of different techniques were developed to cope with those defects, find and locate them so action can be taken. The big disadvantage is that those techniques take a lot of time and therefor money, because the application is out of order for a longer period.
Because of the timetable, often only sampling is done to get a general view of the status of the application.
Sound Wave Inspection Systems (SWIS) doesn’t have the time problem because we are working with sound and therefor the speed of sound. Where the other techniques need sampling to cope with the time problem, SWIS inspects all the application tubes in the same time or faster!
SWIS's products are using the latest industry standardized non-traversing APR technology. This innovative heat exchanger and boiler inspection solution enables fast and efficient maintenance of critical systems for a wide range of applications in all kind of industries. These highly accurate and easy-to-use defect detection tools improve business efficiency, reduces downtime and lowers maintenance costs.
