Hitachi

Toward the goal of steady and continuous operation of equipment and facilities

In general condition of machine is easily confirmed by daily checking of machine, archive of operating log, operating circumstance. But Hitachi's advanced diagnosis technologies are able to inspect the progress of machine deterioration more strictly and quantitatively.

Our experts apply the dingnosis technologies to a lot of equipment shown below.

Diagnosis Technology

Ultrasonic corrosion diagnosis

Hitachi's ultrasonic diagnosis can inspect corrosion progress inside of vessels and equipment without dismantling. Also this inspection is availabele during machine running and operating.

  • Estimating carrion condition of cast iron and carbon steel by using a master evaluation curve created based on the characteristics of ultrasonic diagnosis detector.
  • Corroded condition (area and depth) and wall thickness is visually displayed on monitor
  • Ultrasonic diagnosis system is consisted of potable PC and handy type detector, which is optimal for onsite working.
