Advanced Techniques ANDT

Contact us

Applus+ RTD has been developing innovating techniques for over 75 years in order to provide our clients with the best possible solution for their challenges in NDT, inspection and certification. To provide the best possible services and technologies we have an in-house Research & Development department in the Netherlands, where we also develop our own ultrasonic probes.

Our advanced services are developed with a focus on providing the most efficient and accurate inspection for your assets and facilities. This means that we can also use these advanced technologies to inspect our assets on stream, so they can remain in service. In some cases the technologies can even test your assets without removing insulation or coating.

Off course, safety is a main concern for us as well. Some of our advanced techniques are developed to minimalize the use of radiation, or even replace radiography completely by ultrasonic methods.  Accessing certain assets may be a challenge as well. Some of our techniques mentioned below are developed specifically to remove the need of scaffolding, which is not only a safer way of inspection but can also reduce costs greatly.

Our advanced services and techniques, for the large part developed in-house, always present you with the best possible solution to ensure the safe and efficient operation of your assets. These methods always give you a CLEAR INSIGHT in the integrity of your assets, and at the same time realize savings on the total cost of ownership.

Applus+ RTD comes up with a new tool

A new tool enables Applus+ RTD to perform inspections more quickly and accurately on isolated objects - even in the most challenging environments. A combination of an easy to handle and quickly adaptable system which is equipped with an integrated scanner controller and fully battery operation and in combination with a scanner based on Phased Array inspection procedures were performed more quickly. With the highest dynamic range and amplitude resolution available, you know you’ll never miss a signal. The high frequency range and pulser voltage of the Phased Array channels enable you to inspect a wide range of materials, including challenging materials that you couldn’t previously inspect. The solution is called: P-Scan Stack System with AGS-2 scanner.
