Spectroline® frequently surveys NDT technicians and distribution companies across the globe about industry practices, challenges, and goals. This trend report examines the major uptick in use of LED technology in lamps for fluorescent inspection, and the benefits of LED over bulb lamps (HID and Mercury Vapor). The results contain a few surprises and several opportunities for NDT technicians to unlock in the year ahead.
For years, UV HID inspection lamps have been in the forefront of NDT. However, because these lamps have certain operating issues that often make them less than ideal, technicians and specifying agencies have almost universally transferred to the use of UV-A LED lamps instead.
