The Equotip range of portable hardness testers are best suited for on-site hardness checks of metals where the test indentation should be as small as possible. The hardness measurements are made by using the dynamic rebound testing method according to Leeb, the static Portable Rockwell hardness test and the Ultrasonic Contact Impedance (UCI) method.
The Equotip 550 is the most versatile all-in-one solution for portable hardness testing. The Leeb hardness principle is based on the dynamic (rebound) method and is best suited for on-site testing of heavy, large or already installed parts. The Portable Rockwell test principle follows the traditional Rockwell static test method, which is particularly suited for scratch-sensitive, polished or thin parts as well as for profiles and pipes. The electronically adjustable test load between HV1 and HV5 (~10 N & ~50 N) makes the Ultrasonic Contact Impedance method perfect for fine-grained material with any shape or for heat-treated surfaces.
A wide range of different impact devices, as well as a comprehensive selection of test blocks and accessories cover most applications.
Roll Hardness Testers – Fast and reliable hardness testing of paper, film, foil, textile, cardboard and leather rolls
Out of round rolls and other defects such as corrugations caused by non-uniform roll hardness profiles are a major cause of lost production for both producers and converters alike. A reliable measurement of the roll hardness profile is of critical importance in deciding whether a roll is good or bad. Proceq’s instruments give the production staff the support they need to quickly and reliably test the roll hardness and to interpret the results as efficiently as possible. It enables the user to quickly and precisely diagnose roll imperfections, hardness inconsistencies and uneven winding, thereby preventing problems for printing and converting operations.
The Equotip 550 Leeb U is the successor of the Parotester and perfectly suited for large rolls, thin foils and films. The new generation touchscreen offers an elaborate interface designed by industry experts for increased efficiency and an exceptional user experience. The enhanced software provides many helpful functions such as wizards and custom reporting
The Equotip Piccolo 2 and Bambino 2 are both suited for on-site hardness checks of metals where the test indentation should be as small as possible. The Equotip Piccolo 2 offers the same features for metal hardness testing, but offers additionally user defined hardness conversions and the Proceq invented software Piccolo.
Proceq’s latest innovation is Equotip Live featuring a wireless impact device, mobile app, real-time data sharing and cloud backup.
The Paper Schmidt is the first integrated rebound hammer designed specifically for the testing of roll profiles. It features high accuracy and repeatability and delivers instantly all key parameters required for assessing the roll quality. The Paper Schmidt has an extended lifetime to cope with the heavy demands of the paper industry.
Industrial processing and chemical plants work at high temperatures and pressures; with often-aggressive media and stainless steel is often the material of choice for these applications. If the ferrite content of the steel is too low, then welding of stainless material may crack at elevated temperature or with high stress or vibration. If the ferrite content is too high, the weld may be weaker and corrode.
To address the need to measure the amount of ferrite in a sample the Welding Research Council introduced the Ferrite Number (FN) as standardized value, which related to the ferrite content of an equivalently magnetic weld metal.
The Diverse Ferrite meter MF300F+ measures the Ferrite number (FN) of austenitic and duplex stainless steel weld material. It has a probe that is sensitive to ferrite content in a 10 mm area to a depth of approximately 1 mm. The instrument is calibrated using the secondary world standards held at The Welding Institute. All 16 standards are used in the calibration giving an instrument with a measurement range from 0 to 115 FN. Transfer standards are supplied with the instrument allowing performance to be verified at any time.
CIVA is a multi-technique (Ultrasound, Eddy Current, Radiography…) modules package that can be bought or rented, independently or combined, for a single computer or on a network. The CIVA platform not only provides simulation tools, but it is now also powerful software for the analysis of your UT acquisition data.
The simulations accessibles through CIVA software allow for an optimized choice of an inspection procedure. The software lets you take into account most influential parameters involved during an inspection, regarding the transducer, the geometry or the material of the inspected specimen, but also the sought after flaws. Through tweaking all these parameters, it is then possible to determine the most appropriate method for the inspection, or to evaluate the performance and relevance of an existing procedure.
With flawed specimens you can conduct practical demonstrations to ensure your NDT equipment, procedures & personnel are good enough to find & size them.
The flawed specimens offered by FlawTech contain purposely induced real flaws which are accurately sized & located. Each specimen is supplied with documentation detailing flaw types, sizes & location.
Non-destructive testing of wire ropes can be provided with the wire rope tester INTROS. The INTROS is a dual-function instrument, i.e. it simultaneously detects Localized Flaws (LFs) and measures Loss of Metallic cross-sectional Area (LMA). LFs normally mean broken wires, which usually caused by metal fatigue, while LMA is typically caused by external and internal corrosion and abrasion.
The INTROS includes the basic unit and the magnetic head connected with cable. The magnetic head scans the rope along its working length. Size of the magnetic head is chosen according to the size of rope. Signals from defects are stored in the data logger and can be simultaneously shown on the unit display. Using software Wintros signals in the form of LF and LMA traces are downloaded to computer for analysis.
The INTROS meets requirements of international standards like ASTM E1571, EN 12927, ISO 4309, and IMCA SEL 023.
The Lizard M8 NDE system is an advanced electromagnetic defect detection and corrosion mapping system for structural and materials integrity assessment. System variants are available for topside or subsea inspection use, both operating under the same LISS software to ensure a common interface for all users.
The LIZARD® system provides uncompromising performance in one low cost instrument. Whether your need is LIZARD® Electromagnetic Array, LIZARD® AC Field Measurement, advanced LIZARD® Field Gradient Imaging (FGI) or Classic Eddy Current inspection or alternatively choose a user defined combination of techniques to ensure total confidence in defect detection.
