Sonomatic Power Generation Division, employs seasoned professionals with combined decades of experience in advanced turbine/generator NDE. We offer a full range of automated and manual techniques to interrogate the integrity of your turbines and generators; with many of our inspections being used to support engineering remaining life assessments. In addition to our ‘standard’ offerings, such as boresonics, wheel-sonics, blade attachments, generator rotor retaining rings, etc. we also have developed unique, proprietary inspection techniques for specific applications, such as curved axial-entry last stage blade roots on specific OEM blade variants. We also work on all OEM rotors.

SonoCAM - Compound Aperture Multiplexing Technique
SonoCAM is a unique, automated phased array technique that combines a pulse-echo phased array, with a distinctive pitch-catch technique for far-superior detection of radial-axial indications on wheel-like components.
Ideally suited detection technique for shrunk-on disk-bore/keyways & radial-axial cracking on blade attachments. The technique also improves data collection speeds, boasting up to 50% faster data acquisition by multiplexing than from single-channel scanning.
