Ipsen adds vacuum chamber wall thickness testing

February 24, 2022

Ipsen USA, Cherry Valley, Illinois, USA, has expanded its field service capabilities to include ultrasonic wall thickness testing for vacuum furnaces, which aids in the verification of the chamber’s integrity and determining its remaining lifespan.

Vacuum chamber wall thickness testing is a service that will be provided by Ipsen’s field service engineers using an ultrasonic inspection instrument. This non-destructive (NDT) method requires only the removal of a small amount of paint at each desired test point.

Ipsen’s service team works with the engineering department to determine the appropriate thickness for each chamber wall, and whether it passes or fails to meet the ASME Pressure Vessel Code. When the test is finished, customers will receive a detailed report charting the thickness of the chamber wall across a wide range of areas, as well as maintenance and repair recommendations.

“Having a better understanding of the furnace’s condition will result in more accurate maintenance planning,” stated John Dykstra, Chief Service Officer, Ipsen. “Customers can have peace of mind knowing their furnace is safe for operation, while also preparing for future repairs or replacement.”
