EddyFi Lyft Eddy Current Phased Array Flaw Detector for sale
Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance PEC solution. The system features a portable, state-of-the-art instrument, real-time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition (up to 15 readings per second) with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables (35 m / 115 ft). It can also scan through thick metal (up to 64 mm / 2.5 in) and insulation (up to 203 mm / 8 in liftoff), as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets.
The Lyft software is packed with automation and advanced algorithms that remove operator-specific dependence, thanks to the power of the SmartPULSE™ technology. It automatically optimizes pulser and receiver parameters (gain, duration, time gates, filters, etc.). SmartPULSE also optimizes wall thickness (WT) measurements, which ensures optimum performance and repeatability, while limiting the need for advanced knowledge of pulsed eddy current.
The multi-touch, user-friendly software includes several innovative features, including real-time C-scan imaging (grid mapping and dynamic modes), complete WT measurements (ID and OD corrosion), as well as complete inspection management and reporting capabilities.
The Lyft instrument is sealed and designed for IP65. Its magnesium alloy casing is tough, water and dust resistant, and cools without any external air exchange. The adjustable stand, the top handle, and four corner anchor points make it practical for on-site inspections. The embedded and portable Windows® PC offers standard connect-anywhere capabilities and advanced productivity tools that optimize field testing. The premium-quality 26.4 cm (10.4 in) LED display is optically bonded, non-reflective, comes with 3 mm (1/8 in) strengthened glass, and is designed for gloved hands, under any lighting conditions. The system also comes with two, hot-swappable batteries for extended battery operation.
CUI Programs Redefined
Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) is possibly the greatest unresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness over insulation (Liftoff) without removing it all have severe limitations. Lyft® is a high-performance solution reinventing Pulsed Eddy Current
Lyft can scan through thick insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. It also benefits from a range of PECA, single-element PEC, and application-specific probes to support various applications. Who else but Eddyfi would reinvent an eddy current technique, integrate high-productivity array to the solution and completely redefine CUI programs?
Automated Software for Reliable and Repeatable Results
The Lyft is packed with automation and advanced algorithms that remove operator-specific dependence, thanks to the power of the SmartPULSE™ technology. It automatically optimizes pulser and receiver parameters (gain, duration, time gates, filters, etc.). SmartPULSE also adjusts Wall Thickness (WT) measurements to ensure optimal performance and repeatability, while limiting the need for advanced knowledge of pulsed eddy current. The user-friendly multi-touch software also includes several innovative features, including real-time C-scan imaging (grid-mapping and dynamic modes), complete wall thickness measurements (ID and OD corrosion), as well as complete inspection management and reporting capabilities.
Unique to Lyft—Wall Thickness Measurement Tool for Smaller Flaws
Under sizing is a well-known phenomenon for PEC where defects smaller than the probe’s averaging area appear shallower than they really are. The Lyft’s Compensated Wall Thickness (CWT) tool mitigates the phenomenon by quantifying the minimum wall thickness of a specific region in a C-scan. The CWT tool’s specialized algorithms isolated a defect’s contribution to the A-scan signal to more precisely compute its minimum wall thickness.
Optimized Performance for Wall Thickness and Liftoff
The Lyft solution includes several sizes of plug-and-play probes for the right balance between wall thickness and liftoff.
Capable of a single-pass coverage of 457 mm (18 in) in grid or high-resolution encoded dynamic mode. It supports metal thickness 6–25 mm (0.25–1.0 in), insulation 0–102 mm (0–4 in), and stainless steel and aluminum weather jackets. CUI assessment has never been this fast, improving overall inspection productivity as much as 10 times.
Supports metal thicknesses up to 100 mm (4 in), insulation as thick as 300 mm (12 in), and stainless steel/aluminium/galvanized steel weather jackets. They complement the array probes in limited-access, small-pipe, and thick-component inspections.
