QAE NDI is a full diagnostic NDE technology applied for detection and assessment of flaws in critical structures during their normal operation with no need in outage or costly scaffolding. Since it is applied during operation, QAE NDI is used for evaluation of operational, mechanical conditions causing flaw origination and development.
QAE NDI technology have numerous unique advantages. It is full diagnostic method allowing detection of flaws at their early stages long before their develop to failure. QAE NDI performed on 100% of the inspected structure and during its normal operation.
After hundreds of projects and many years of practical application, QAE NDI has demonstrated its maturity, reliability and accuracy. Numerous documented double blind, confirmation and verification tests have demonstrated excellent detectability, accurate assessment and agreement with other NDE methods.
We listen to the integrity of critical structures during operation to detect flaws at their earliest stages long before they become failures.
Combined Cycle Units
Combined cycle units may undergo damage accumulation in their piping material. Our QAE NDI technology is now available for online inspection and monitoring of:
1. Over-Spray Damage (Thermal Shock / Fatigue)
2. P91 - Flaw detection at early stages.
On-line inspection and monitoring of high pressure reactors, steam and gas lines, ammonia tanks and other critical equipment suffering from stress corrosion cracking, hydrogen embrittlement and fatigue.
On-line assessment of structural integrity of boiler headers, P91 steam piping, deaerators, drums and other equipment subjected to creep, thermal damage, corrosion-, mechanical- and thermal fatigue and other flaws.
