Steam Generation UT Inspections & TRUSTIE™ Workshop

Dates & Locations

Overview

​Protecting the investment in steam generators and heat exchangers requires an inspection and maintenance system that minimizes repair costs and extends the life of these components. This course discusses and demonstrates the TRUSTIE (Tiny Rotating Ultrasonic Tube Inspection Equipment) system. Kinectrics’ experts present the information required to help you determine asset condition for optimum usage and equipment life extension.
