SPX Gappscan on-site leak detection service

Tuesday, 12 November, 2013 | Supplied by: SPX Flow Inc



Detecting defects in heat exchangers, pressure vessels, heater coils and jacketed tanks has traditionally been a difficult process, involving undesirable chemicals/gases or expensive disassembly of machinery for inspection. The SPX Gappscan on-site inspection service offers an efficient eco-friendly solution for detecting leaks.

This method of identifying even minute cracks or holes is claimed to substantially reduce the risk of product contamination and lower overall production costs.

The non-intrusive Gappscan technology does not require any undesirable chemicals or gases to evaluate the internal status of machinery, and access to just one side of a heat exchanger is required. The process uses a quick-connect system, which requires only mains water to operate.

Testing is swift, minimising interruptions to production. Test results are instantaneous, recorded with GPS information and utilise a unique reference number for complete traceability.

The service is a certified process carried out by a qualified inspector who can provide an immediate assessment of any action required. The system detects cracks and holes below five microns, enabling the pre-detection of leaks and meaning non-urgent repairs can be monitored and scheduled with other planned maintenance to optimise plant production time.

Using only water, the service offers an environmentally friendly methodology which minimises the risk of lost product through contamination.
