M2M Gekko successfully qualified by the EPRI


Eddyfi Technologies has announced that the Gekko® phased array flaw detector has been successfully qualified for the examination of austenitic and ferritic piping welds according to the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) procedure EPRI-PIPE-MPA-1, Rev.2. The EPRI procedure is qualified according to the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code, Section XI, Appendix VIII.

The Gekko inspection equipment is qualified to accurately detect and measure size discontinuities within the specified examination volume from the outside diameter (OD) surface. This includes piping systems susceptible to stress corrosion cracking (SCC).

Since 1972, the EPRI has been an independent non-profit organisation for public interest in energy and environmental research. Being qualified by the EPRI is a real recognition in the nuclear industry and is another step towards a safer and better environment. During the coming year, other qualifications at the EPRI are scheduled on other procedures and Eddyfi Technologies is actively looking forward to it.

Eddyfi Technologies is committed to providing the most advanced NDT inspection technologies as safely as possible and to promoting advanced technology in the nuclear industry.
