ACFM; Alternating current field measurement in Fairview, NY

ACFM; Alternating current field measurement in Fairview, NY

Integrity Testlabs was one of the first companies to provide this inspection technique in the Northeast. ITL technicians have completed hundreds ACFM inspections on equipment shells in oil refineries in the Northeast. ACFM is a electromagnetic technique used for detecting cracks breaking the surface. Capable of also sizing the defect. ACFM can be used on ferrous and nonferrous metals. ACFM can be fast and effective inspection. It does need the area to be cleaned and electric available to run the ACFM unit. Wet Fluorescent Magnetic Testing (WFMT) can be used as an alternate inspection to confirm the findings of the ACFM.

Fairview Drone Inspection

Using drones is quickly becoming a common inspection method. The biggest attraction is offering a safe way to inspect confined spaces and inspected areas high in the air. With todays advanced cameras they are capable of doing a very good visual inspection. Some drones offer infrared capabilities. This allows the operator to look for hot or cold spots on equipment, structures or solar panels. Smaller drones make for good options to investigate or inspect confined spaces. Larger drones are capable of using or deploying Ultrasonics to perform thickness readings on hard to reach places. To use a drone for commercial purposes the operator must have a FAA license.

Typically 40hrs of radiation safety is the first step/certificate that is needed to get started. Once the Assistant has had some time in the industry the company will provide them with classroom training either in house, computer based or sending them to a course provided by a known 3rd party. When the Assistants meets the required OJT hours and classroom time. They will test with the company they are with by completing a specific, general and practical exams.

Traditional Film, Computed Radiography and Digital radiography in Fairview, NY

Integrity Testlabs currently utilizes traditional film and computed radiography (CR) film. Traditional film is still loaded under safe lights and developed using a 5-step process in the back our darkrooms. Once dry, the filmed in viewed under a high intensity viewer looking for defects. Traditional film comes in several different sizes and leaves the client with a physical piece of film to view for years to come. Computer Radiography or CR uses plates that are phosphor. When these plates are exposed to radiation, the plates emit a blue light that is interpreted by the film processor and then transmitted into an image and viewed on the computer screen. This process is efficient and plates can be used multiple times, no chemicals are needed to process the film. Digital radiography is newer to the industrial and keeps gaining popularity each year. Limited in film size and mobility. The biggest advantage is shorter x-ray times, less radiation, wire or wireless capabilities, and instant images that are displayed on the computer screen.
