Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is possibly the greatest unresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness over insulation (liftoff) without removing it all have severe limitations. Lyft is a high-performance solution reinventing pulsed eddy current (PEC). The patent-pending Eddyfi® solution features:
-State-of-the-art portable instrument
-Standard pulsed eddy current array (PECA) technology
-Real-time C-scan imaging
-Fast data acquisition
-Grid and dynamic scanning modes
Lyft can scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. It also benefits from a range of PECA, single-element PEC, and application- specific probes to support various applications. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
Automated Software for Reliable and Repeatable Results
The Lyft software is packed with automation and advanced algorithms that remove operator-specific dependence, thanks to the power of the SmartPULSE™ technology. It automatically optimizes pulser and receiver parameters (gain, duration, time gates, filters, etc.). SmartPULSE also adjusts wall thickness (WT) measurements to ensure optimal performance and repeatability, while limiting the need for advanced knowledge of pulsed eddy current. The user-friendly multi-touch software also includes several innovative features, including real-time C-scan imaging (grid-mapping and dynamic modes), complete wall thickness measurements (ID and OD corrosion), as well as complete inspection management and reporting capabilities.
Unique to Lyft—Wall Thickness Measurement Tool for Smaller Flaws
Under sizing is a well-known phenomenon for PEC where defects smaller than the probe’s averaging area appear shallower than they really are. The Lyft’s compensated wall thickness (CWT) tool mitigates this phenomenon by quantifying the minimum wall thickness of a specific region in a C-scan. The CWT tool’s specialized algorithms isolate a defect’s contribution to the A-scan signal to more precisely compute its minimum wall thickness.
Desktop Analysis Software
Lyft Pro enables advanced Lyft data analysis and features the same graphical user interface than the Lyft software, making it easy to learn and benefiting from larger data layouts. This translates into Lyft instruments out in the field acquiring data while analysts work hard to extract value from acquired data. Lyft Pro makes it easier to plan inspections for several Lyft instruments. The software also has features to generate richer reports and tools to bridge calibration parameters between scan zones. Available for free to subscribing Lyft software and service plan users. Download Lyft Pro here.
SurfacePro 3D is an advanced visualization and reporting software designed to automatically create components and overlay stitched C-scan data. Use it to import Lyft reports, create 3D components, and stitch color maps automatically. Easily import, export, create, and edit report templates. Compile and merge inspection data with associated images, inspection parameters, and defect tables for fast and compelling reporting.
The Best of PEC in a Portable Instrument
The Lyft instrument is sealed and designed for IP65. Its magnesium alloy casing is tough, water and dust resistant, and cools without any external air exchange. The adjustable stand, the top handle, and four corner anchor points make it practical for on-site inspections. The embedded and portable Windows® PC offers standard connect-anywhere capabilities and advanced productivity tools that optimize field testing. The premium-quality 26.4 cm (10.4 in) LED display is optically bonded, non-reflective, comes with 3 mm (1/8 in) strengthened glass, and is designed for gloved hands, under any lighting conditions. The system also comes with two, hot-swappable batteries for extended battery operation.
Lyft can be used in any number of applications, such as corrosion under insulation (CUI), corrosion blistering and scabs, flow-accelerated corrosion (FAC), corrosion under fireproofing (CUF), in the splash zone and underwater, surface corrosion, corrosion under coatings, and waterworks.
