   Home : HADCO Services : Comprehensive NDT : Electromagnetic Flux Leakage Testing

Both wire rope and drilling tubulars can be inspected using Electromagnetic Flux Leakage Testing.

Wire Rope

When visual inspections of wire rope are not enough, HADCO can perform in-service inspections of crane and mooring lines utilizing computerized dual-function units capable of measuring both localized flaws (LF) and loss of metallic area (LMA).

In-Plant Inspection

HADCO also uses a state-of-the-art stationary dual function VEDAQ-P unit with computerized archiving capabilities.

Mobile Inspections

For on-site applications, portable dual-function (also referred to as Buggy Run) units are available.  DS-1 specifies this type of unit as EMI 2. 

The unit is equipped with Hall Effect Sensors that monitor changes in wall thickness and detect transverse flaws through the use of a continuous coil-induced magnetic field.

The results from each drill pipe tube are recorded on a strip chart and kept for future reference.
