Tubular Inspection is the application of various technologies to detect anomalies such as corrosion and manufacturing defects in multiple different tubes. Tubing can be found in all different places such as boilers, heat exchangers, and other industrial equipment. By inspection, we usual insert some type of probe into the tubes, one at a time, while data is recorded for later interpretation. The technologies listed below (ECT, RFT, IRIS, and MFL) are all able to detect defects on the outside of the tube from the inside.
