Best Portable Electromagnetic NDT System for Rapid Crack and Corrosion Assessment
Detecting and Sizing Cracks in Carbon Steel Welds
The Sharck™ is based on tangential ECA (TECA™) technology, which was specifically developed for cracking in carbon steel. Not only does it enable measuring surface-breaking crack position and length, but also sizing cracks as deep as 7 mm (0.28 in). Furthermore, the Sharck allows simultaneously scanning the weld cap, toe area, and heat-affected zone for longitudinal and transverse cracks without surface preparation or paint removal.

Assessing Corrosion on ferromagnetic pipes, tank walls and more
MFL pipescans can adapt to a wide range of diameters (48 mm (1.9 in) to flat surfaces). The Magnetic Flux leakage option allows you to fully benefit from the REDDY versatility in order to fast screen large areas for corrosion indications. The array of sensors provides large coverage and high POD. Lift-off and thick magnetic walls are now at reach.
Detecting and Sizing Cracks in Stainless Steel Welds
Padded ECA probes adapt to geometry variations in almost every direction, making the probes perfect for examining weld beads, transitions, and heat-affected zones (HAZ). The probe’s design enables detecting surface cracks 0.5–1.0 mm (0.02–0.04 in) long in welds with minimal surface preparation. The probe’s membrane is extra-tough to better withstand friction.
Assessing Corrosion on Aluminum and Stainless Steel Tank Floors
Semi-flexible ECA probes can adapt to a tank floor’s curvature and other geometric features, offering sufficient penetration to scan through thick aluminum/stainless steel (over 0.250 in or 6.35 mm thick). So doing, the solution is capable of detecting and characterizing corrosion-related defects such as pitting and thinning affecting as little as 10 % of a plate’s thickness. Read the application note about it.
Detecting and Assessing Stress Corrosion Cracking in Base Metal
I-Flex™ probes are the most versatile ECA probes in the industry. Thanks to their multiple built-in topologies and flexible bodies, they can address a variety of applications. I-Flex probes are perfect for detecting stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) in both ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Whether SCC is affecting the integrity of pipelines, pressure vessels, or tanks (on base metal or internal cladding), encoded scans performed with I-Flex probes allow efficient sizing of clusters.
This version of the Magnifi software allows you to perform advanced analysis of the data acquired with Reddy directly on your computer. Magnifi R offers the same graphical user interface as Magnifi GO so any analyst can be up and running in next to no time, with a wider range of large monitor data layouts than Magnifi GO. This means that Reddy units can be out acquiring data in the field while analysts are hard at work on their computers extracting value from the data. Furthermore, with Magnifi R you can easily plan and set up inspections for several Reddy instruments to make the most of your hardware.
