Gamma scans are a powerful tool that we use to evaluate the operating characteristics inside of trayed or packed towers. This primary investigative tool in diagnostics obtains valuable information that cannot be obtained in any other way. Gamma scans are used to non-intrusively detect blockages and other issues inside of your equipment in real time, and with this valuable data you can determine the best course of action to remedy the situation. Despite their value, many companies and crews still hold some common misconceptions about gamma scans. Here are a few:

Gamma scans fix tray issues

Despite their value to companies, our gamma scans do not fix the issues that blockages cause inside of packed or trayed towers. We use gamma scans to determine if the blockages are there. This saves you the hassle of playing a guessing game as to whether or not there is a problem, and the expense of bringing a crew out to fix a problem that doesn’t exist.

They take a long time

Although the process might seem so complex that it takes quite a long time to get results, gamma scans are able to provide results relatively quickly depending on the equipment being monitored. ScanTech prides itself on providing services as quickly as possible while still maintaining great results. You can have instant access to results with our cutting-edge software, and be well on your way to repairing your equipment.

Gamma scans require preparation from the client

We have heard this before from people in the industry, but it isn’t true. Gamma scans can be used on towers up to 300 feet tall and 30 feet wide with no preparation on your part. The technology we use is capable of seeing through insulation and other materials. We only need access to the top of the tower through your existing platforms.

ScanTech offers the most advanced services in the process diagnostics industry, and with our gamma scans we can quickly and accurately determine damage inside of your packed or trayed towers. These are some common misconceptions about gamma scans that we needed to dispel. Contact us today if you have any other questions about how our services can help your company.
