Eddy current inspection is an efficient and precise non destructive test method. This type of inspection is particularly helpful to evaluate heat exchangers and aircraft parts and components.
The flow of periodic electrical currents in conductors, or probes, creates varying electromagnetic fields. These probes are placed near the surface of the test material and can detect the effects of processing and shaping operations during production, as well as corrosion damage or cracking for most nonmagnetic metals and alloys.
Eddy current testing is a valuable tool for the non destructive testing and condition monitoring of a large variety of metallic structures, including heat exchanger tubes, aircraft fuselage, and aircraft structural components.
