At TesTex, we know your turnaround depends on our turnaround.

Products

TesTex uses a variety of state-of-the-art electromagnetic techniques to scan for defects in both ferrous and nonferrous materials and structures.

LFET Products

Low Frequency Electromagnetic Technique (LFET) products are used to inspect storage tanks, other convex or concave ferrous surfaces, as well as nonferrous metal tubing/piping surfaces.

RFET Products

Remote Field Electromagnetic Technique (RFET) products are used to quickly and accurately inspect ferrous tubing found in heat exchangers and drum-to-drum boiler generating banks.

BFET Products

Balance Field Electromagnetic Technique (BFET) products are used to detect surface and sub-surface cracking in welds and base metals.

ECT Products

Eddy Current Technique (ECT) is used to quickly and accurately inspect non-ferrous metal tubing from the tube internal dimension (ID).

Ultrasound

TesTex has enhanced ultrasonic (UT) inspection for many different applications, including tank shells, UT prove-ups, finned tubes and waterwalls.

Probes

TesTex produces standard and custom probes (and calibration tubes) for all of its ID (internal dimension) inspection equipment.

Falcon S Series

The Falcon S Series is a tank floor scanner based on Saturation Low Frequency Eddy Current Technique. It scans tank floors by saturating the floor plates with an electromagnet and then using Eddy Current to detect defects in the plate as it scans over it. With this technique we are able to detect pits, holes, cracking, and wall loss while differentiating the orientation of the flaw depending on if it is a top side or bottom side flaw. This scanner is the latest in tank floor scanning technology.

Differences from other Falcon products

The underlying technology is what makes this scanner a better tool for sizing flaws. LFET is better suited to detection than sizing, and is an excellent option for some of our clients needs. The Falcon S Series uses similar technology to our Mag Wave system, in that it brings Eddy Current accuracy to Ferrous plates. The highly sensitive nature of eddy current allows the scanner to detect and size top side and bottom side pitting, and localized wall loss. Additionally, The Falcon S Series can detect cracks. One other exciting feature is the ability of the Falcon S Series to scan through non-metallic coatings of up to 0.5 in. (12mm)
