The importance of balancing HVAC systems


What are HVAC systems? HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) systems are designed with a dual purpose: on the one hand they filter particles from the air in a given enclosed area and, on the other, they are able to achieve selected conditions of pressure, temperature and humidity, i.e., they produce a sensation of suitable … Read more

Supporting the development of nuclear fusion


Have you heard of ITER? ITER is undoubtedly one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken by mankind, not only because it constitutes a challenge in terms of complexity and cost, but also because it involves the coordination of more than 35 countries across the world. This said, what is it about? The aim of … Read more

Take a look at the latest type of remote visual inspection


Visual inspection consists of observing the external or accessible surfaces of parts, components or materials, either with the naked eye or using optical instruments. It is the Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) technique par excellence and its physical agent – light – does not cause any damage to the vast majority of materials. Changes in the properties … Read more

central atucha

The company Nucleoeléctrica Argentina S.A. (NASA), the owner of Atucha nuclear power plant, has awarded Tecnatom a new contract for the supply of valves and spares. This is the second contract for the supply of Walthon Weir Pacific components to the Argentinean nuclear programme. This order arises in the wake of an in-depth review of … Read more

Dry ultrasonics. Analogy of the most widely used techniques


As is described in our article “Ultrasonics. Beyond the coupling medium” , dry inspection makes it possible to address the evaluation of components under extreme working conditions, the inspection of complex geometry elements, the reduction of surface contamination on parts and the avoidance of the need to install water circuits in productive machines, also facilitating … Read more

How does simulation help in NDT inspections?


Recent simulation tools allow us to anticipate and increase our knowledge of responses to complex scenarios. In the field of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), simulation takes on special importance through its use in various critical areas such as the aeronautical, nuclear, industrial, healthcare and military sectors, where the levels of safety and quality involved require particularly … Read more
