RTD INCOTEST (INsulated COmponent TESTing) is based on the pulsed eddy current principle to carry out PEC inspection in a wide range of industry sectors. Pulsed eddy current testing is a reliable way to survey ferrous pipes and vessels through their thermal insulation and protective coatings. Our jointly-developed PEC inspection technology is an excellent tool for prioritising corrosion under insulation inspections. In this technique, the sending coil generates eddy currents at the surface of the material. As they diffuse, they generate a magnetic field that is detected by the receiving coil in the NDT probe. The average remaining wall thickness within the enclosed magnetic field is proportional to the decay time of the received signal.
