UWEC Tester: Underwater Crack Detection
Sensima Inspection’s UWEC TESTER is the perfect tool for reliable inspection, both underwater and on surface. The equipment complies with eddy current inspection standards, in particular the ISO 15548-1:2013 (Equipment for eddy current examination) and BS EN ISO 17643:2015 (non destructive evaluation of welds).
The UWEC underwater eddy current tester has been approved for weld inspection by major authorities around the world, including the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS).
The differentiating features of the UWEC tester are
1. Reliable signals: the eddy current signals are processed next to the probe, i.e. robust, digital signals can be transmitted to the surface
2. No compromise on robustness: a stainless steel casing protects the tester and our proprietary design for weld probe includes a full metal protection of the contact points.
3. Versatility: The system can be used for manual inspection and ROV integration, both onshore and underwater. The integration can be performed by the customer. Sensima provides support on demand.
