Ashtead Grows Inspection Tools Portfolio

Ashtead Technology has expanded its equipment rental pool with the latest Pulsed Eddy Current (PEC) technology for asset integrity inspections.

Namely, Ashtead will now supply the Eddyfi Lyft, an inspection tool for identifying corrosion under insulation (CUI), an asset integrity issue for the oil and gas, and petrochemical sectors.

CUI is a type of corrosion that occurs as a result of a moisture build-up on the external surface of insulated equipment. The corrosion is most commonly galvanic, chloride, acidic, or alkaline, and if undetected, the consequences can lead to the shutdown of a process unit or an entire facility.

Allan Pirie, chief executive of Ashtead Technology, said: “This investment underlines our commitment to the subsea and non-destructive testing markets, by offering the latest, cost-effective technologies ensures our customers are getting the most efficient, reliable solution available.”
