Pioneering the Data-Driven Science of Bridge Health
How is Infraspect Revolutionizing American Infrastructure?
Catches Bridge Corrosion in the Early Stages
Infraspect uses an advanced Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) technology to perform non-destructive testing on bridges. The system is designed to pinpoint signs of degradation on the structure’s internal components before they result in costly repairs.
Develops Monitoring System for Corrosion Inspections
The technology behind Infraspect delivers precise, data-driven assessments that catch every nonconformity within the structure of the bridge – and provides insight into what actions are needed to be proactive in maintaining infrastructures.
Traditional bridge inspection methods (like visual tests and hammer taps) do not provide an accurate assessment of structural integrity – and appropriate action is not always clear. Infraspect moves beyond these practices by providing objective data analysis that leaves nothing open to human error.
Provides Actionable Insights
The inspector can analyze the data from the Infraspect system and present the findings to the asset owner. This examination helps the respective party stay ahead of risks and manage resources more effectively.
Reduces Gray Areas in Monitoring
Precise monitoring of bridges is impossible without a 360-degree view of the structure. The Infraspect system examines the inner and outer layers of bridges on a granular level to eliminate unknowns and uncertainties.
The Infraspect Vision
What Do State and Municipalities Gain from Infraspect?
States and municipalities are held to guidelines for visual inspection processes by the Federal Highway Administration. Infraspect meets – and exceeds – these requirements, eliminating the risk of fines and threats to public safety.
Infraspect is instrumental in helping states and municipalities manage budgets efficiently and reduce dependence on federal resources. The data-driven system works to improve confidence from the federal government – which may assist in securing more funding.
The proactive nature of the Infraspect system works to eliminate issues that lead to safety concerns, damage control, and loss of life.
About Infraspect: How It Works
Infraspect uses a proven combination of Non-Destructive Testing technologies, robotics, and specialized software.
The MFL technology scans every component of the structure. If there are any broken wires within the magnetized steel, a flux is created. This flux is measured and converted to a percentage of loss to assess the damage – then determine the proper action.
The system goes above and beyond manual testing processes, which generally provide subjective results. These antiquated tests rely on visual inferences and limited data.
The Future with Infraspect
Bill Seavey, Vice President of Engineering and Executive Vice President
Bill Seavy founded Infrastructure Preservation Corporation, which was subsequently acquired by Infraspect, a TFIC Company, to identify deterioration within today’s infrastructure’s critical assets.
Bill has sixteen years of non-destructive testing experience, advanced NDT in magnetic flux leakage, condition assessment on steel and concrete structures to identify levels of deterioration – as well as remote structure health and environmental monitoring.
The mission at Infraspect is to make infrastructure safer, help government and private organizations manage resources more effectively, and provide a new approach to remote monitoring.
