The use of eddy current arrays as a replacement for dye-penetrant inspection of generator and exciter end-rings
Abstract:With reduced inspection time and recoverable inspection data, eddy current array technology is the future of surface crack detection on power station components.
Generator and exciter end-rings will soon reap the benefits of accurate surface crack detection using eddy current array solutions from RWE npower. Accurate defect mapping, quick and complete data recovery, relative defect size information and rapid data acquisition are just a few of the drivers behind the switch away from fluorescent dye-penetrant inspections.
