To guarantee the quality of Equipment.
■ Periodic check is the way to ensure the equipment quality fulfils the requirements of current standards and all inspections carried out are relevant, in compliance with the specifications of the Customers / Primes.
■ It is carried out using a normative support with gauged and equipment.
■ A Periodic check is supposed to prevent breakdowns and represents a starting point to change obsolete parts from the manufacturers /suppliers.
■ It gives a progress report on the ageing of equipment, thus allowing the follow-up and the forecast of investments.
Periodic checking On site
■ no immobilization of the equipment
■ no shipping costs
■ no damage
■ No dismantling of the acquisition units from the scanning machines or X-ray cabins
In TESTIA buildings
■ reduced immobilization (1 week maximum)
■ reduced cost (unit price by equipment)
Examples of equipments:
■ Ultrasonic Testing: flaw detectors (conventional/phased array) & thickness gauges, transducers (single Crystal & arrays).
■ Eddy current Testing: flaw detectors & electrical conductivity instruments
■ X-ray testing: tubes, generators, negatoscops
■ Other: on request
