IMechE and Eddyfi Launch Pulsed Eddy Current Training

Inspecting and managing Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) is still a major issue facing asset integrity.

October 28 2016 –  In light of this and the unrivalled success of the recently released Lyft system, IMechE Engineering Training Solutions (IMechE ETS) have developed a training course with Eddyfi that provides an appreciation for the use of Pulsed Eddy Current (PEC) in combating CUI. Dates are now available as part of the recently released 2017 training schedule.

Developed in collaboration with Eddyfi which involved one of our tutors visiting their site in Quebec, the course will provide those attending a level of understanding of PEC and CUI. Focusing on the Eddyfi Lyft system, the course will also be beneficial to those that have recently or are looking to purchase the equipment as it will look at calibration, its benefits and its limitations.

Attendees will also get the opportunity to gain practical experience on a mixture of heavily corroded and decommissioned pipe as well as dedicated samples manufactured by our sister company Sonaspection.

Those interested in the new course can find out more at the upcoming Corrosion: Inspection and Prevention event held at the IMechE Engineering Training Centre in Sheffield on 1 and 2 December.

The event will feature talks from key opinion leaders such as Eddyfi, BINDT, the Institute of Corrosion and EEMUA with an exhibition featuring Olympus, Sonatest, Elcometer, Phoenix ISL and Johnson & Allen. There will also be a dedicated area for in-depth practical demonstrations and a tour of the adjacent Factory 2050 where attendees will be able to view the research facility’s next generation developments. Tickets are priced at £40 (+VAT) per person for the two days with refreshments provided and free car parking on site. CPD renewal points are also available.
