Non Contact Profile Measuring Tool for Nuclear Reactors
Two lasers are used to monitor the profile. The operator moves a testing head fitted with lasers on mechanically guided encoder slide, which provides the real time position of the head. The lasers provide the distance from the object reflecting the beam. Up to thousand samples per second are collected from both lasers together with corresponding positions.
The profiles are calculated from collected samples. An advanced calculation routine is used to calculate the diameter and the centre of each feeder pipe.
