Complete Suite of Airfoil Inspections in Minutes!
TWI's new T3S Thermographic Turbine Test Station performs a comprehensive suite of turbine airfoil inspections in a single, consolidated system.
The breakthrough technology platform uses advanced thermography to detect hole and channel blockages, measure TBC wall thickness, detect TBC delamination and detect cracks for land and aerospace based turbine components.
Comprehensive. Modular. Automated.
T3S can replace many time-intensive inspections currently performed on multiple test systems.
Its modular architecture can be configured to meet specific turbine inspection requirements.
Single test station for multiple applications
Increased speed, accuracy and reliability
Complements other NDE test procedures
Developed under NAVAIR STTR
Conventional NDT techniques used today to inspect for blockages, cracks, thickness and adhesion typically take days to complete. T3S offers improved performance and time savings by an order of magnitude.
The net benefit is increased inspection sensitivity, increased throughput, and significant cost reduction and return on investment.
