At Tecnatom we help nuclear plants operate more securely and efficiently, ensuring the status of their equipment to guarantee prime production conditions. Our inspection services use Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques, a crucial factor needed to not cause any damage to the equipment during its inspection.
This also means that inspection services have an enormous added value, prolonging the service life of machinery in production plants and increasing their workload.
Our actions are based on the latest verification technology such as laser generated ultrasounds, induced currents, digital radiography, EMAT, UT or phased array. This is in addition to a company which has over 30 years of experience in Non-Destructive Testing services.
We have a team of NDT experts who are certified in all of the relative techniques in accordance with the various regulations (UNE or ASME). They will carry out prior research on the state of the industrial plant, to then provide subsequent suggestions of the most efficient course of action. The plan of action will be carried out together with our customers, to be able to provide a personalised service which is completely adapted to their needs.
Tecnatom’s objective is to provide our users with a service that meets the safety and efficiency standards recommended by the current regulations, which is essential for the reduction of business activity costs and for the increase of plant productivity.
The inspection must first be assessed against the characteristics of each company, in consideration of the regulations established by the current legislation and the type of equipment present. Depending on the outcome, the most effective NDT solutions for the situation shall then be implemented.
We do not depend on third party technology, allowing us to develop numerous inspection systems, from manual to automatic, with ultrasound methods, induced currents, magnetic particles, liquid penetrators, or digital radiology.
The inspections will be carried out by our Non-Destructive Testing experts, who use verification methods which are fully adaptable to any industrial environment. These focus on aspects such as the geometry or thickness of the equipment. Said elements can be changed as required by the client, meaning that we are trained and able to carry out any class of inspection, regardless of its complexity.
Tecnatom will provide you with the best inspection options. To do this we have developed our own hardware and software into ultrasound and induced current equipment, integrating automated elements to streamline the work, allowing us to obtain constant excellent results.
This robotic equipment used in the checks stands out for its versatility and efficiency. It is a product of our R+D department, which is one of the cornerstones of our business, alongside our team of specialists who have helped to position us as global NDT method leaders.
