NM200EVT-1 underwater laser scanner for PWR
Newton Labs has developed the NM200EVT-1 Scanner with built-in high-resolution radiation tolerant colour cameras and lighting to quickly and accurately perform VT-3, VT-1 and EVT-1 inspections required by MRP and ASME Section XI.
Robot performs further tank inspection with VT-1 Tank Floor
Newton Labs and Framatome (formerly AREVA NP) have successfully completed a robotic examination of a third filled Condensate Storage Tank (CST) using Phased Array UT and VT-1 Visual Examination at the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station. The exam satisfied requirements for license renewal and the NEI 09-14 directive on buried pipes and tanks.
Underwater robot maps water storage tank
Newton Labs and AREVA NP successfully completed a robotic examination of a filled CST (Condensate Storage Tank) using Phased Array UT and VT-1 Visual Examination at a US nuclear facility in April. The exam satisfied requirements for license renewal and the NEI 09-14 directive on buried pipes and tanks.
Newton Labs partners with Areva to provide robotic exam tech
AREVA NP signed an exclusive agreement with Newton Research Labs to make Newton’s non-destructive evaluation (NDE) inspection technology available to the U.S. nuclear industry. The combined service will be the most advanced NDE tank inspection and robotic repair service currently available in the nuclear industry. With this partnership, AREVA NP becomes the exclusive U.S. supplier for Newton’s “Inspector" robot technology f...
Underwater laser scanner used for 3D measurements of steam dryer
A Newton Labs’ NM200UW Underwater Laser scanner captured precision as-built dimensions at a Midwest Nuclear Facility during a recent spring outage. A team of engineers, supported by Newton Labs, performed 3D laser scanning on the four vessel support brackets and the four associated steam dryer seismic blocks.
Underwater laser scanner gathers evidence
An underwater laser scanner, developed and manufactured by Newton Labs, is proving to be an effective and critical evidence gathering tool at a construction-related special project in Germany, where the scanner measurements will used for judicial purposes. Divers from Baars-CIPRO deployed a Newton model M210UW Underwater Laser Scanner at the bottom of a water-filled construction pit to document the detailed features of a slurry wall.
Highly Accurate Nuclear Fuel Assembly Mapping System by Newton Labs to Eclipse Legacy Video Micrometer Measuring Process at Exelon Facilities
A revolutionary nuclear fuel assembly core mapping system developed by Newton Labs is approved by Exelon Corporation as their primary method for determining nozzle position in PWRs. The mapping system, known as the NM200E, offers substantial advantages over the legacy video micrometer procedure in terms of accuracy and mapping time, and has been deployed during outages at both the Braidwood and Byron Generating Stations in Illinois.
Newton Labs Expands Underwater Laser Scanner Line with a New Model Featuring Extended Distance and Greater Imaging Area
Time-efficient surveys and precise measurements of larger underwater facilities, from bridge and pier substructures to smaller, submerged piping and valve assemblies are now possible with a new underwater laser scanner, the M300UW developed and manufactured by Newton Labs of Seattle, Washington.
