Margan is the world expert in on-line inspection and monitoring of critical piping systems, pressure equipment and structures by its own pioneered and developed Quantitative Acoustic Emission Non-Destructive Inspection (QAE NDI) technology.
Since 1994 Margan has introduced a number of inspection concepts and technologies that are about to revolutionize the way various industries inspect their critical components and structures. Particularly in the power industry, Margan has developed:
In other industries, Margan has developed and successfully applied QAE NDI technology for on-line inspection of low density polyethylene reactors, water cooling loops in nuclear power plants, glass-lined equipment, concrete and reinforced concrete structures and many other applications.
Margan is the most experienced company in on-line inspection and monitoring in the power industry. Through more than a decade of on-line inspection of high energy piping systems, Margan's QAE NDI technology has demonstrated reliable, early detection and accurate assessment of all common failure mechanisms typical for high energy piping including thermal and mechanical fatigue, creep at pre- and micro-cracking stages, cracks in hangers and many others. QAE NDI findings were validated in numerous confirmation and double blind tests.
In oil, gas and petrochemical industries, Margan's QAE NDI technology has demonstrated superior detectability and accurate assessment of stress corrosion cracking, caustic corrosion, fatigue, hydrogen embrittlement and other dangerous flaws types in different critical process equipment that previously could not be satisfactory inspected by other NDE methods including tradition AE. There are cases when QAE NDI has warned about impending dangerous failures before those could be identified by other available means.
Margan's experts were pioneers in development and practical application of acoustic emission technology for inspection of hundreds of kilometers of concrete, reinforced concrete and metal bridges, tunnels, landslide activity, and buildings after trauma, fire and other events.
Margan brings a great value to the industry:
