Eddy Current Testing (ECT) is a non-destructive testing method which utilized the principle of electromagnetism to characterize the integrity of electrically conducting structural materials and components. A Portable Eddy Current Test System (Model: Eddycon C, OKOndt Group) is recently set-up at High Temperature Technologies Division, IPR.  A system consists of Eddy Current flaw detector, surface and bobbin eddy current probes, calibration standards to detect surface and sub-surface defects presents in materials and components. This facility have a potential utilization such as,
1.  To check the surface defects in Divertor plasma facing components at various stages of manufacturing as well as at in-service inspection,
2.  To evaluate electrical conductivity of material and
3.  To inspect raw materials, multilayered structures and tubes.

System Features:-

 Frequency Range up to 16MHz in dual frequency mode and multiplexing.

 Surface probe for flat/curved surface components and bobbin probe for tube inspection.

 Compatible with encoder and data storage up to 8 GB.

 Non-contact inspection with immediate results.

 Compatible with probes and rotary scanners of various makes and types.
