Les Ulis, France, January 31th, 2019 — Eddyfi Technologies is proud to announce that the Gekko phased-array flaw detector has been successfully qualified for the examination of austenitic and ferritic piping welds according to the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) procedure “EPRI-PIPE-MPA-1, Rev.2”. The EPRI procedure is qualified according to ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code, Section XI, Appendix VIII.
The Gekko® inspection equipment is qualified to accurately detect and length size discontinuities within the specified examination volume from the outside diameter (OD) surface. This includes piping systems susceptible to Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC).
Since 1972, the EPRI is an independent nonprofit organization for public interest in energy and environmental research. Being qualified by EPRI is a real recognition in the nuclear industry and it means to be one step forward towards a safer and better environment. During the coming year, other qualifications at EPRI are scheduled on other procedures, and Eddyfi Technologies is actively looking forward to it.
Eddyfi Technologies is committed to provide the most advanced NDT inspections technologies and to promote advanced technology in the nuclear industry, and that, as safely as possible.
