SCT™

LEADING THE

WAY FORWARD

 The science of stress-magnetisation in steel was little known in the world until we initiated and funded a research project jointly conducted with the University of Leeds UK. Our research team at the University has discovered in precise detail the relationship of stress and magnetic fields produced by steel structures under localised corrosive, metallurgical and mechanical stresses. The existence and location of these defects can now be identified through an automated algorithmic analysis of magnetic data collected by using our patented hardware UNISCAN™. This method of data collection is now known internationally as SCT™ - Stress Concentration Tomography. 

The only inspection technology in the world that can detect defects and 3D map at the same time.

Uses magnetic signatures to detect wall defects, weld defects, corrosion, SCC, physical features, lateral position and depth of cover.
