MILAN, ITALY-AcousticEye, the leader in non-invasive tube inspection solutions for the heat exchanger market, has signed a strategic agreement with nondestructive testing (NDT) company Sound Tube Testing, based in the Netherlands. Sound will deploy the AcousticEye Dolphin G3 systems throughout Europe, making the tube inspection technology readily available to the region. The two companies made the announcement at POWER-GEN Europe, where they are exhibiting together at Booth 5D46.

“With this partnership in place, we expect the penetration of our ultra-fast inspection system into Europe to accelerate greatly,” says Brenda Zeitlin, vice president of Business Development for AcousticEye. “Under the agreement with Sound we can already boast the entrance of the Dolphin G3 into the markets in Germany, Greece, Croatia, Spain and Benelux.”

Sound Tube Testing has already signed on five new service providers in Europe, representing new territories for AcousticEye. The providers are: Vogt Ultrasonics GmbH in Germany, Technava S.A. in Greece, Trokuttest d.o.o. in Croatia, DiagnostiQA Consultoria Tecnica S.L. in Spain, and HPFM in the Benelux region. With many more prospects in the pipeline, the AcousticEye APR technology is guaranteed to be widely available for the inspection of all heat exchangers throughout Europe.
