GE Oil & Gas has launched Mentor UT, a new digital solution to improve asset reliability, reduce maintenance costs and downtime.
The Mentor platform of connected NDT portables from GE contains the latest developments in flaw detection, user interface and wireless connectivity. Asset owners and inspection companies can choose from a variety of digitally optimised GE instruments to meet their ultrasonic (UT), electromagnetic (EM) and visual inspection (RVI) needs.
The most recent product innovation from GE is Mentor UT, an ultrasonic array flaw detector optimised for corrosion and erosion mapping of process piping, tanks and vessels in the field. Mentor UT enables users to download inspection applications that guide users through inspection procedures.
Mentor UT has been designed to improve inspection productivity and provide excellent probability of detection. Like GE’s other Mentor products the interface is an intuitive touch screen.
“Corrosion and erosion are costly problems for Oil & Gas and Power Generation companies,” said Tim Humphrey, Senior Product Line Manager for Portable Inspection. “Mentor UT addresses this issue by providing a complete digital corrosion mapping solution for this application.”
Mentor UT provides excellent ultrasonic performance with the power of array corrosion mapping and a conventional UT channel. Guided inspection apps and the touch-screen interface improve inspector productivity, lower training costs and get new inspectors on-the-job faster.
