Paper Title:
Measurement of Wall Thinning through Insulation with Ferromagnetic Cladding Using Pulsed Eddy Current Testing
  Abstract

Pulsed eddy current (PEC) technique has been successfully used for measuring wall thinning of carbon steel equipments without removal of the insulation. In field applications, the probe performance decreases in presence of ferromagnetic claddings. This paper presents a method based on saturation magnetization to solve this problem. The main principle of this method is to weaken the magnetic shielding effect of the cladding by magnetizing it to saturation. A U-shaped magnetizer is designed to realize this method. Contrast experiments are performed on a Q235 steel plate covered by a galvanized steel cladding. The experiment results show that the thickness measurement range and lift-off range are increased by applying this method to the common PEC probe.
