Brookes Bell launches non-destructive corrosion detection technology

Brookes Bell has announced a new system to allow yards and management companies to ‘see through’ teak decking, enabling accurate assessment of corrosion levels underneath the deck before the superyacht is hoisted out of the water, and before any decking is ripped up.

The system works by firing a magnetic pulse through the deck and covering to the steel plating below. This produces an electrical current, with the time taken for the current to decay measured to determine relative corrosion levels underneath. This produces an electronic visual report for the user showing the spread and severity of corrosion below deck.

The NDT (non-destructive technology) system is being described as a ‘practical and sensible approach to tackling the problem of hidden corrosion in superyachts’ by the firm.
