Carburization of ethylene pyrolysis tubes causes issues such as loss of weldability, corrosion resistance and ductility, which can result in micro-cracking and ultimately tube failure. Quest Integrity's Ethylene Pyrolysis Tube Inspection System (EPTIS) enables comprehensive inspection of carburization damage in ethylene pyrolysis tubes. Our system utilizes advanced eddy current technology to measure magnetic permeability increase due to carburization as wells as separate sensors to measure diameter increase. It is the only tool that allows inspection along the entire length of tubes without scaffolding.
Our EPTIS provides operators with accurate information to assist in predicting tube remaining life, scheduling timely tube replacement and avoiding on stream tube failures.
