NDT program the recipient of LS-50 Immersion Tank
Stressing the importance of students having the latest Non Destructive Testing (NDT) Industry Technology to get hands on training to increase their understanding of basic NDT theory, Joe Clasen, Cowley College NDT instructor/Career and Technical Education Department Chair, had his proposal for a donation of a LS-50 Immersion Tank selected as the winner by judges and employees of Marietta NDT.
There were a wide variety of ideas on how to use the robust UT lab scanner in a College or University setting. Clasen provided insight into how a small immersion tank can help additional departments within the College and the local community that looks to Cowley College for NDT inspection capability.
“Having this new equipment will be a great all around tool,” Clasen said. “We will be able to utilize brand new technology with our students and prepare them with equipment they will use in the work force.”
The students will have a robust UT lab scanner that will come complete with X, Y and Z scanning capability, automated scan plan software, UTEX advanced UT instrument and analysis software. The system will also ship with a tablet computer that will operate the software and provide a complete solution.
“We are very pleased to begin a relationship with Joe and the entire NDT program at Cowley College and look forward to hearing about the results of having this advanced tool,” Scott Delaney of Marietta NDT said.
