TD NDE ™ provides customers with quality refurbishment and modification services
on old immersion systems. When new UT equipment is cost prohibitive or impractical, we can save a worn and obsolete immersion system by tearing it down, evaluating wear and failures, and rebuilding it with new electronics and custom fabricated replacement parts, as needed. Refurbishment of ultrasonic systems is not limited to a particular brand or Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). It is a service offered on all systems; often on OEM that are no longer in business or that do not offer this service. We work with a selection of data acquisition electronics including conventional UT and Phased Array and we will add our motion software to complete the selected acquisition system.
How does it work
The process begins with an assessment of the need and evaluation of the work extent. Clients begin by sending pictures and technical information on the system they own. A check list is used to assist. Items such as system conditions and description, known problems and requested improvements are covered. Details on the inspection needs follow to determine if the system can meet these objectives and to select the most appropriate data acquisition unit and software requirements. Based on these inputs, an initial offer is made. The offer has a base cost that includes the work described. There is also a provision for assessment of mechanical and electrical components to ensure they are working properly. The assessment leads to a situation report to finalize the work content prior to beginning the retrofit.
