First In the World To Manufacture Remote Field Technology

At Russell NDE we take pride in developing new technology and products that help our customers around the globe conduct safe inspections. In the early 1990’s through to the 2000’s, Russell turned its attention to honing remote field technology (RFT) solutions for pipelines and pressure vessels.

RFT is well suited for the inspection of carbon steel, nickel, as well as other magnetic materials.  RFT allows for the safe and accurate inspection of tubing (particularly heat exchanger tubes) to catch corrosion, wear, and underscore pitting early on. Remote Field Technology is capable of detecting virtually every kind of degradation type with remarkable accuracy, all with minimal disruption to your system.

Russell’s main RFT product, the Ferroscope 308 RFT/ECT System is the winner of the 2011 Frost & Sullivan Global Remote Field Testing Product Leadership Award, and is widely regarded as the world’s most sophisticated remote field testing system for NDT of tubes, pipes and plate. As one of the foremost experts in the field of RFT inspection, Russell is proud to offer the Ferroscope for our clients in the oil and gas, pulp and paper, and petrochemical sectors.

Russell NDE Eddy Current Technology

Following the success of Russell’s RFT solutions, our team then turned to the development of Eddy current inspection products. Suited for work with brass, stainless steel, copper, aluminum, titanium, and other non ferrous materials, our Eddy Current Technology (ECT) uses voltage plane polar plot display (VPPP) for optimal results. The Ferroscope is capable of supporting up to 16 channels of RFT plus 4 channels of ECT. Alternatively it can be configured for multi-channel ECT and 4 channel RFT. These multi-channel, multi-frequency options allow the Ferroscope to be used for array applications such as VertiScan, E-PIT, FloorScan, I-PIT and surface scanning applications.
