Eddy Current Flaw Detector

The eddy current flaw detector is a machine that tests and finds defects on the surface and near-surface of metal components. It is widely used for online and offline flaw detection of various types of non-ferrous metals, ferrous metals tubes, rods, wires, wires, and profiles. The eddy current inspection equipment has the characteristics of multi-function, strong practicability, high performance, and price ratio. It is often used in the field or field of military, aviation, railway, industrial and mining enterprises.

Eddy current testing (also commonly seen as eddy current testing and ECT) is a nondestructive testing technology making use of electromagnetic induction to detect and characterize surface and sub-surface flaws in conductive materials. Eddy current defect testing is a dynamic test and is accomplished by running energized coils over an area to be tested. Eddy currents are fields of alternating magnetic current that are created when an alternating electric current is passed through one or more coils in a probe assembly. When the probe is linked with the part under inspection, the alternating magnetic field induces eddy currents in the test part. As the coils pass over a crack or flaw, discontinuities or property variations in the test part change the flow of the eddy current the eddy currents are forced to deviate, and this deviation is detected by the eddy current instrument. Testing is fast, accurate, and repeatable, and the technology is much better suited for in-line and offline production inspection versus magnetic particle and dye penetrant testing.

  • China Eddy Current Inspection Equipment
    China Eddy Current Inspection Equipment is a noncontact testing method used to inspect nonferromagnetic tubing. China Eddy Current Inspection Equipment is a flaw detection technique that uses an alternating electromagnetic coil to induce and generate eddy on the metal component. This machine is suitable for detecting and sizing metal discontinuities such as corrosion, erosion, wear, pitting, baffle cuts, wall loss, and cracks in nonferrous materials.

The Principle of Eddy Current Flaw Detector


The drawings below represent schematically how does eddy current machine works. The coil (red) causes a magnetic field, which initiates eddy current. If a defect appears in the effective area, the eddy current has to take a different way, this changes the impedance of the coil and the operator sees the changes on his screen (Z1-Z2).


Main Features of Eddy Current Flaw Detector


1. Non-destructive

Non-destructive--means that when the test results are obtained, except for rejecting non-conforming products, no parts are lost. Therefore, the scale of inspection is not limited by the number of parts. It can be used for sampling inspection and general inspection when necessary. Therefore, it has more flexibility (both general inspection and random inspection) and reliability.

2. Mutual compatibility

Mutual compatibility-refers to the mutual compatibility of inspection methods, that is, the same part can use different inspection methods simultaneously or sequentially, and the same inspection can be repeated. This is also a non-destructive benefit.

3. Dynamic

Dynamic-this means that the eddy current testing method can inspect the parts in use, and can timely investigate the cumulative impact of the product during operation. Thus, the failure mechanism of the structure can be ascertained.

4. Strictness

Strictness-refers to the strictness of eddy current testing technology. First, eddy current testing requires special instruments and equipment to help ET machines with testing smoothly and accurately.  second, it needs the inspector to adjust a suitable parameter to test by using sample piece.
