IMES is set to showcase an innovative system that reduces time and costs in a key area of inspection work.
The non-destructive testing (NDT) solution for checking certain types of bolts for corrosion or cracking – without removing them – will be the centrepiece of a series of technology events in Aberdeen and Rosyth.
Ewan Giles, business development manager at IMES, said: “The ultrasonic solution has been trialled and approved by large companies internationally, and we're now planning to introduce it to the North Sea market.
“As well as checking for corrosion and cracking, the solution can also quantify the loss of body material within the bolt.
"Depending on access it's possible to test up to 60 bolts an hour, and that represents a huge potential cost-saving when compared to traditional inspection techniques.
“We’re expecting a high degree of interest and are urging prospective attendees to book in advance.”
Five demonstrations will be held: three at IMES’ Aberdeen office at Greenhole Park, Greenhole Place, Bridge of Don, and the other two at Building 72, Watt Road, Rosyth Business Park.
The Aberdeen events take place on Thursday, January 28 at 8.30am, noon and 3pm – contact Ewan at firstname.lastname@example.org to book places. The Rosyth events will be held on Friday, January 29 at 9am and noon – contact email@example.com to book places.
