EM&I – the international asset integrity specialists – have just completed a highly successful trial of their ‘ExPert™’ technology for the NII (Non-Intrusive Inspection) of Ex equipment for a major drilling company.
ExPert is a technology derived from the medical profession that allows for the internal inspection of Ex equipment without opening the units or shutting down the electrical systems.
The trial involved EM&I specialists from around the world to test the system on various Ex components selected by the client and witnessed by a senior representative of the company.
EM&I was able to detect all the major flaws introduced into the test components, fully validating the technical ability of the ExPert system for non-intrusive inspection of Ex equipment.
Danny Constantinis (Executive Chairman of the EM&I Group commented: “The speed and capability of the ExPert system is a major advance in the inspection of Ex equipment which will save our clients significant costs and time whilst improving Ex equipment safety, and avoids the costs and time of having to isolate electrical systems and strip down components for inspection”.
