Graphitization Inspection (NRG, EPRI)
TesTex developed handheld BFET probes to scan the outside diameter of a tube or pipe looking for graphitization. Quality readings can be acquired through coatings such as paint and uniformed scale. The actual probe does not need to be in contact with the test piece. BFET is able to locate areas suspected of containing graphitization. Core samples are removed at select locations found with the BFET for further analysis.
