Pulsed Eddy Current Array (PECA) High-Resolution Probe

Assess remaining wall thickness under corrosion scabs and blisters. Safely.

Eddyfi Technologies offers a dedicated PECA™ solution to assess the remaining wall thickness through corrosion scabs and blisters. With a specialized high-resolution sensor, scan accessory, and advanced algorithm, the PECA-HR scab kit enables safe in-service inspection of corrosion layers - without surface preparation.


  • An array of dual sensors capable of spatial triangulation
  • Dual sensor coil design
  • High-resolution acquisitions
  • 75 mm (3 in) coverage in a single pass
  • Two acquisition modes: grid and encoded dynamic scanning
  • Software with advanced real-time processing and a dedicated scab mode
  • Semi-rigid scab mat for constant liftoff during acquisition


The patent-pending high-resolution PECA probe is part of a complete inspection solution dedicated to providing the best estimate of remaining wall thickness over surface-forming scabs and corrosion blisters.

Using an array of dual sensors capable of spatial triangulation, the HR PECA probe enables detection of the smallest possible defects with pulsed eddy current technology, within the adequate range of wall thickness and liftoff. With 75 mm (3 in) of coverage and encoded dynamic-scanning, typical corrosion scabs can be inspected in less than one minute! Eddyfi Technologies’ array design generates clean and compelling C-scans. The novel probe, combined with advanced real-time processing, a dedicated scab mode and a new scab mat, provides top-quality data at unrivalled speed. It supports metal thickness 3-19 mm (0.12-0.75 in) and liftoff 0-50 mm (0-2 in).

The Most Reliable Option for Corrosion Scab Assessment

Because Eddyfi Technologies’ PECA HR inspection solution does not require surface preparation, assessment of the remaining ligament can be performed while the asset stays in service. Moreover, the technique provides 100% coverage and does not use radiation for a safe work environment.
