Corrosion and Pitting
LTC's Laser MicroMap™ system is ideal for inspecting parts subject to corrosion and pitting to determine their condition. Our laser surface mapping sensors can provide a 3D map of the part surface, allowing precise measurement of the amount of remaining material. In particular, our Laser MicroMap™ Tube Inspection system is ideal for internal corrosion monitoring of tubes and pipes. Our LaserViewer™software contains tools for statistical analysis of all or part of a scan, and the file comparison feature enables quantitative comparison between parts or over time. In addition, the LaserVideo™ image generated by the laser mapping sensor provides important qualitative information about surface features that cannot be measured by laser profiling, such as discoloration and surface roughness.
