ROTA – Ultrasonic Tube/Pipe Tester

GE Inspection Technologies’ ROTA test systems have their origins in high-precision testing of pipes and heat-exchanger tubes for nuclear applications. Now, the ROTA Series is a probe rotating ultrasonic system also for bar and hot processed pipe inspection from 5 mm up to 450 mm in various types.

The product fulfils various testing regulations such as ASTM, ASME, API, SEP and DIN.

ROTA System Features and Benefits
  • Turn key online, offline system with conveyor, testing bench and water system
  • Various crack-type defects throughout the material cross section and divergences in the dimensions for internal and external diameter, wall thickness, ovality and eccentricity/wall-variation can all be detected in a single inspection cycle
  • The systems are equipped with single or multiple probes, depending on the particular test requirement
  • Capacitive signal transmission without mechanical wear
  • High lifetime of the mechanical elements by use of stainless steel
  • Notable for high test speeds and highly repeatable results
  • Integration of eddy current test systems as a second, independent physical test procedure
