From SLOFEC to MEC – An Overview of the Technique’s Further Development and Inspection Application for Tanks, Pipes and Pressure Vessels

Magnetic Eddy Current (MEC) is the next generation of fast corrosion mapping technique based on the further development of the industry proven Saturation Low Frequency Eddy Current (SLOFEC) technique. The MEC technique is a dynamic electromagnetic scanning technique that combines a direct current magnetic field with an Eddy Current field. An electromagnetic technique where direct surface coupling between the sensor system and the object to be inspected is not necessary, the MEC technique can be utilised not only for risk based inspection but also as a non-intrusive inspection (NII) strategy. The MEC technique is used by Innospection as one of the key tools for integrity assessment support.
