Boiler Inspections

Boilers suffer from many forms of degradation while in service. Water Wall Tubes can degrade due to hydrogen damage, pitting, ash and soot-blower erosion, graphitization, under-deposit corrosion, thermal fatigue cracking, and creep damage.

Our ultrasonic and visual inspections detect all of these forms of boiler damage through precise and accurate testing.

Robotic Inspections for Boilers

Using high quality ultrasonic testing probes, inspectors utilize robots to gather thickness data around the complete surface of each Water Wall Tube; we can service Water Wall Tubes ranging from 1’ to 4’ in outer diameter. 

Measurements are collected at different angles by an array of 8 ultrasonic sensors. With variable speeds up to 12” per second, our robots are equipped with an HD camera, allowing for real time video surveillance. Measurements are calibrated and compared with handheld scanner readings to ensure the highest accuracy
