Hot Inspection Service (HIS)

Is there an issue with your high temperature fixed equipment, but you can’t see the cause, or the exact site? Cetek’s Lancescope™ was designed and developed for just this situation. It allows a high temperature inspection to be undertaken to determine the scope of the problem, often avoiding an expensive shut down.

Cetek’s Lancescope™ system provides real-time, close-up or wide-angle views of virtually any area inside a fired heater, or other high temperature equipment while it is still operating. The system uses a state-of-the-art digital camera system, which provides clear, detailed images of problem areas up to 3000°F (1650°C). The system can be inserted into openings as small as 2.75” (7cm) and reach up to 30ft (10m). In applications below 1000°F (540°C), the system provides illumination via a high temperature light source for optimum clarity.

Benefits of the Lancescope™ Inspection process include:

  • Performed while unit is in operation
  • Provides insight for production availability
  • Identifies damage in early stages
  • Reduces maintenance costs
  • Minimizes repair down time
  • Maximizes production

The Lancescope™ technology is supplemented by a complete infrared thermography analysis, temperature tests, and emissivity measurements.
Infrared Thermography – Cetek employs infrared technology to inspect process tube surfaces to primarily identify the degree of oxidation and scale formation.
