THIS YEAR DESTEC ENGINEERING LTD REACHES 50 YEARS IN BUSINESS WITH GREAT SUCCESS

Destec Engineering has experience in abundance to ensure that the products and services provided are of the highest quality each and every time. The PLC was founded by its current owners in 1969, and they haven’t taken a backwards step ever since. The key strength of Destec is that no work is subcontracted out, unlike many of the competitors. This means that Destec has more control over its own products, with everything manufactured, inspected, tested and packaged on-site. Everything that leaves the Destec site is the fully finished article. Destec has developed a number of onsite portable machines which are to be stationed out in South East Asia this year. This means that in the case of an

HOW TSC'S ACFM® NON-DESTRUCTIVE TECHNIQUE IS THE SOLUTION FOR TOPSIDE AND SUBSEA INSPECTIONS

In the 80’s, there was a need for a more adequate technique to estimate the penetration depth of fatigue cracks in underwater welded tubular intersections of offshore oil platforms. That’s when the Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM) non-destructive technique was invented. What exactly is ACFM? It’s an electromagnetic technique that can detect surface-breaking cracks without removing the coating and can then predict the crack’s length and depth using an advanced mathematical model. More precisely, the material under test is submitted to an AC magnetic field, produced by the probe, which induces a uniform current to flow in the material surface. The magnetic flux over the material’s
