Microwaves are radiated from the transducer to the specimen being tested. A detectable signal is returned at each interface where the dielectric constant changes (e.g. – where there are delaminations, cracks, holes, impurities. or other defects.) The transducer may be moved relative to the specimen at any desired speed. Once the data is collected, the software allows the image to be manipulated to enhance features.
The microwave sources used in Evisive equipment are below monitored exposure thresholds and require no special handling or precautions. Microwaves are non-ionizing, and can not damage tissues in the way that X-rays can.
Evisive Scan Imaging Software generates scans for magnitude and phase to visually detect potential indications. There are endless options to assist in the analysis.
EVISIVE NDE EQUIPMENT
Out standard scanning equipment includes automated and manual pipe scanners, tank scanners, wireless scanners, and automated scan tables. We can develop specialized equipment for your needs.
Our automated pipe scanners are ideal for HDPE and FRP piping, suitable for pipe ODs ranging from 3" to 96".
Our wireless manual scanners are lightweight and portable. Our single-axis handheld scanner is great for quick condition assessment. Our 2-axis wireless scanner is extremely simple to use. Both scanners can be used for piping, tanks, etc.
Manual Wireless XY Scanner
Automated XY Scan tables for research institutions.
Our automated tensile tester is used to validate HDPE butt fusion NDE inspection results.
