Overview

MAXWELL NDT is a newly founded company providing electromagnetic inspection technology. The vision is to bring together expertise in electromagnetic non-destructive testing, starting with Pulsed Eddy Current Technology (PECT).

PECT has been developed to detect corrosion hidden under insulation. Previous instruments often lacked the power to be fast and effective. Using the latest battery technology, MAXWELL NDT introduces a novel and very powerful PECT instrument. Its design is based on 20 years’ hands-on experience.

Other applications of PECT include:

– Corrosion under fireproofing (CUF)

– Detection and sizing of flow accelerated corrosion (FAC)

– Inspections in the splash zone – through coatings, marine growth and corrosion product

– Wall thickness monitoring and inspection through repair wraps

– Defect assessment through corrosion product

PECT Instrument

The PECT instrument comprises a ruggedized tablet computer connected to a data acquisition unit. The set is splash water tight, robust and easy to operate. Data collection is fast (two measurements per second) and has a scanning mode. The data is analysed in real-time with various quality control features that assists the operator to correctly analyse the data.


There are four standard probes, each for a different lift-off range. The probes are optimized for defect sensitivity.

The instrument can either be operated from the probe and from the tablet computer.
