Egtved gas compressor station
Lars Andersen is an NDT Inspector who works for FORCE Technology, which is the largest inspection company in Scandinavia. They were founded more than 70 years ago - and operate worldwide from America to Asia.
FORCE Technology has inspected weld seams on pipelines, for ELnet Danmark, during the construction of a new gas compressor station near Egtved in Denmark.
Seeing as low weight and ergonomics are important to Lars, he has been using the SMART EVO 225D for this inspection job. “NDT Inspectors often find themselves in awkward positions while positioning the tube head. These strenuous situations sometimes result in the operator dropping the tube head, which may damage it”.
The EVO series is built for easy positioning and handling, and is well suited for these kinds of situations. The tube heads are robust and can withstand bumps from rough handling, and are also light-weight for easy positioning. “There is a lot to be said about the importance of tube head ergonomics. I prefer tube heads to be as light as possible, and it’s great that the SMART EVO series is even lighter than the Y.SMART series”.
“The relative low weight of the EVO 225D makes it easy to both handle and position. YXLON portable products are robust and have great ergonomics. They are robust and easy to position on pipes”.
