Course Description:

Lavender International's Eddy Current Testing Tube Level 2 training is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to effectively conduct eddy current testing on tubes. The training covers both general and specific theory related to eddy current testing, as follows:

General Theory:

  • A brief history of testing
  • Basic principles of testing
  • Generation of eddy currents by means of an ac field
  • Effect of fields created by eddy currents
  • Effect of Change of impedance on Instrumentation
  • Terminology and units
  • Principles of magnetization.
  • Magnetization
  • Electromagnetism theory
  • Flux leakage theory and principle
  • Readout mechanism
  • Types of eddy current sensing elements
  • Types of flux leakage sensing elements
  • Review of electromagnetic theory
  • Factors that affect coil impedance
  • Factors that affect flux leakage fields
  • Signal-to-noise ratio
  • Selection of test frequency
  • Selection of method of magnetization for flux leakage testing
  • Coupling
  • Field strength and its selection
  • Field orientation for flux leakage testing
  • Instrument design consideration
  • Safety as applicable to eddy current testing and electrical safety

Specific Theory:

Application of the method to the specific requirements of the company, in particular making reference to those codes, specifications, and procedures used by the company, including the relevant control checks.

This training is suitable for those seeking certification at PCN GEN BS EN ISO 9712 Levels 1, 2, and 3, as well as ASNT Level 3. Additionally, the training is suitable for candidates working in an employer's written practice based on SNT-TC-1A, EN4179, and NAS410.

Participants will be equipped with the necessary knowledge and practical skills to carry out effective eddy current testing on tubes and will be able to apply this knowledge to the specific requirements of their company.
