We provide accurate, fast and affordable resonance inspection to eliminate field failures, improve process control and monitor life for in-service parts.
Process Compensated Resonance Testing (PCRT) is an NDT solution that enables manufacturers and operators of power generation equipment to detect outlier components and structural defects that affect performance and reliability of power generation and resource extraction systems. PCRT offers process monitoring and control capabilities to prevent quality escapes altogether. For in-service parts, PCRT Life Monitoring can assess the condition of parts throughout their service life to maximize their value. These benefits, along with PCRT’s high testing throughput and affordability, provide real benefits to the bottom lines of companies that power the world.
PCRT can be applied to a diverse array of critical power generation components, from simple ball bearings to complex turbine airfoils. PCRT can be applied to metals, ceramics and composites, and it can monitor the fabrication processes for those materials.
A list of applications for PCRT in power generation includes, but is not limited to:
- Gas turbine engine blades and disks
- Radial turbines
- Fuel nozzles
- Static components
Energy and mining
- Drilling bits
- Cutters Mooring equipment
