Inductosense and Antaixin partner to run trials with WAND in China
Inductosense Limited (Inductosense) and Beijing Antaixin Technology Company (Antaixin) are pleased to announce a partnership and the start of trials of the Inductosense WAND system in China.
The WAND sensors will be trialled on 100+ locations across different areas of the Sinochem refinery in Quanzhou with the aim of demonstrating their suitability in different corrosion monitoring applications and also integration with the workflow of Antaixin’s NDT engineers. The management from Inductosense and Antaixin met to kick off the project At Antaixin’s facility in Quanzhou, China this week.
Dr. Matt Butcher from Inductosense commented “we are very happy to be working with Antaixin. They have a deep knowledge of refineries, where internal corrosion can occur, and ultrasonic non destructive testing which really complements the WAND product offering.”
Mr Liu from Antaixin commented “WAND product is advanced by its simple installation, fast measurement, reliable data and effective cost. We have confidence in the team of inductosense and we believe that combining the our experience and Inductosense knowledge, the system will become a revolutionary technology for ultrasonic thickness measurement”
