Thanks to EMAT* technology, unique in France, obtain an exhaustive mapping of the thickness of your boiler tubes with a minimum of constraints

What is high performance 
thickness measurement (EMAT)?

High efficiency thickness measurement is an innovative non-destructive test that is unique in France and helps to guarantee the level of reliability, prevent failures and optimise boiler availability.


You currently have a partial view of the health of your boiler through spot thickness measurements. These spot thickness measurements require a significant amount of surface preparation time and you wish to reduce the downtime of your equipment. You wish to anticipate the failure of your boiler tubes by precisely locating the sensitive areas.


"The regulations require you to check the thickness of your boiler tubes.


Thanks to this innovative technique, unique in France, APAVE can measure the thickness of your boiler tubes in an exhaustive manner, with a minimum of constraints and in a short period of time. Discover our complete file to learn more.
