Non-Destructive Testing is used widely in the energy, aerospace and offshore industries. It is a particularly useful for detecting issues in pipelines, turbines, heat exchangers and storage tanks, where it is either dangerous or impossible for a human to access.

The many techniques are popular in product evaluation, research and troubleshooting because they don’t permanently alter the article being tested. Parvalux supplies geared motors to some of the leading manufacturers of NDT robotic detection equipment and our drives are used on products that are deployed in more than 80 countries.

NDT equipment comes in myriad forms; from handheld units where direct access to the target is safe, through to devices that can crawl between walls and up chimneys, through pipelines and engines or traverse weak roofs or restricted spaces. Cutting-edge technologies are in abundance. Delicate sensors can use a variety of techniques to establish the condition of the subject being examined. They are housed in motorised robotic units that can be controlled either by an operator using a wireless remote and view screen or for shorter distances via a wired connection. In each case, it’s crucial that the drive motors deliver smooth, controllable power to enable very accurate positioning of the on-board sensors. Parvalux drives are highly controllable and offer efficient performance.

This is important when it comes to maximising battery life, especially when the route to the target is distant or challenging. We offer a wide range of brushed and brushless DC motors that will not only deliver each requirement with ease but also outperform most competitor systems on the market today. These are just some of the reasons that so many of our customers return time and time again.
