Torch Integrated Inspection Services offers both in the U.K. and
overseas a comprehensive ultrasonic inspection service to include
testing heat-stressed boilers and pipework, monitoring turbines
and generators, measuring corrosion, testing cast, forged and rolled
products, and welded, soldered and bonded joints and structures.
Our in-house funded TOFD system is used to provide rapid inspections
of new and in-service welds, providing a permanent record of tests,
giving accurate and repeatable results capable of being used for
condition monitoring. The system has unique scanners which enable
the operator to rapidly capture data from both flat and curved surfaces.
The rugged modular construction ensures maximum productivity with
minimum maintenance requirements. Interchangeable wedges, probe
holders and a range of transducers, ensure inspection capabilities
in all cases.
The system software is modular in construction and provides both
easy to use dedicated TOFD data acquisition, image processing and
measurement routines, coupled with facilities for database archiving
and retrieval of inspection results.
The Grey Scale D-Scan gives a finger print image of defect type
and depth. The combined RF display gives defect sizing capability.
