NAPSS AG has developed a unique concept called “Asset Health Management” (AHM) for metal structures. We combine “residual stress” detection technologies together with our proprietary stress relief technology “D-Stress”, to offer a unique preventative service which locates, quantifies, relieves and maps excessive residual stress, the root cause of metal cracks and corrosion that can lead to catastrophic failures. Additional benefits such as fatigue life extension, corrosion resistance, distortion mitigation, and abrasion resistance are also realised.
AHM is an asset health tracking systems that uses a number of base technologies including:
NAPSS has developed its own in-house ultrasonic impact treatment (UIT) system D-Stress ™ for a wide range of stress relief applications. The benefits of UIT include:
The global authority on residual stress detection, removal.
Safety through Innovation
The NAPSS spin-off company will use proven passive magnetic sensor technology for stress and flaw detection.
The sensor technology is able to quickly and accurately identify stress concentration zones by either non-contact methods (e.g. through pipe insulation or buried pipe) or by close contact. Non-Contact scans can quickly identify with significant accuracy potential problem zones thereby targeting further inspection. Close contact scans can pinpoint with great accuracy stress concentration zones, microcracks, large cracks, and corrosion areas.
