HamerTech Ltd work with the only Company to effectively clean and inspect heat exchanger tubes using IRIS or Eddy Current technology.
Internal Rotational Inspection System (IRIS) is a sensitive ultrasonic immersion pulse echo technology providing highly accurate integrity data.
Inspection results depend greatly on cleanliness levels. Both ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic tubes can be inspected, providing a three dimensional picture of a defect, showing the profile and its depth.
For successful IRIS inspection, tube bores must be very clean. While other inspection techniques tolerate some degree of scaling, IRIS methods require tubes cleaned virtually down to the bare metal.
Offered is Enhanced IRIS standard Tube Cleaning service that ensures all deposits are removed ready for immediate IRIS inspection. Clients do not need to risk rework or critical path situations which often happen when using conventional high pressure water jet lancing. Jetting nozzles often leave tram lines or a helix of scale in the tubes leading operators requesting a second cleaning cycle before IRIS inspection can be completed.
Any potential conflict of interest by cleaning and inspecting simultaneously is eliminated by the integrity of the inspection technique only seeing what the cleaning reveals.
