1 Ultra-Fast Inspection of Tubes up to 4

2 Founded in 2010 Experts in Acoustic Pulse Reflectometry Proven, patented Acoustic Eye technology European presence and customer base CE certified ISO 9001 certified COMPANY SNAPSHOT

3 BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY Probe injects acoustic pulse down the tube Returned echoes generated by defects are recorded and analyzed Patented algorithms identify and report exact location, type and size of inner diameter defects Based on Acoustic Pulse Reflectometry (APR)

4 Invasive Application dependant – shape, material, size, thickness Physical limitations – tube ID, wall thickness Inventory of consumable probes and standards required Requires highly skilled personnel Eddy Current – Electromagnetic test Video Scope - Optic IRIS - Ultrasonic Slow, cumbersome, limited Conventional inspection techniques TODAYS INSPECTION

5 ACOUSTIC EYE SOLUTION Boilers, Fin Fans, other heat exchangers U-bends, twisted, spiral wound tubes Ferrous and non-ferrous metals, graphite and plastics Up to 4 inner diameter, any shape or material Less than 10 seconds per tube, 5 sec.< 20 ft.(6m) Fast enough for 100% inspection if/when needed Ideal for emergency situations No need for inventory of consumable probes or standards Ultra-fast, non-invasive inspection Easy operation with minimal training Computer-based data interpretation and report generation Less expertise required Dolphin G3

6 TUBE SHAPE U-bends Finned tubes Twisted Spiral wound Any Configuration

7 5/16 up to 4 (8mm – 102mm) inner diameter Up to 35 meters depending on defect size, tube configuration and type TUBE SIZE AND LENGTH

8 TUBE MATERIALS Ferrous Non-ferrous Graphite Plastics Any Type

9 INSPECTION SPEED Less than 10 seconds per tube 5 seconds per tube less than 20 ft. (6m) Fast enough for 100% inspection if/when needed Ideal for emergency situations

10 DETECTED DEFECTS Tube Size5/16-2 1/2" (8mm – 63.5mm)2 1/2"-4" (63.5mm – 102mm) HolesMin. diameter (1mm) Even smaller in some cases Min. diameter (3mm) Even smaller in some cases BlockagesMin. 5% of cross section ErosionMin. 5% of wall thickness PittingMin. 20% of wall thicknessMin. 50% based on defect volume

11 OPERATION Software guides operator step-by-step Tube sheet mapping Parameter input Measurements Intuitive, graphic user interface Simple process to collect data Less expertise required Minimal operator training Computer-based data interpretation and report generation

12 REPORTS Customizable, graphical on-line reports Available output in PDF or HTML format

13 HARDWARE

14 HARDWARE Loudspeaker Microphone Tube Adapter Microphone Loudspeaker Tube adapters to fit up to 4 ID Customized extensions for easy tube access in challenging situations (optional) Compact handheld device

15 HARDWARE External computer connected to handheld device Runs AcousticEye software Inspection setup Probe status monitoring Test data recording and analysis Main measurement and control unit

16 PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS Total box weight 39.7 lbs (18Kg) Box dimensions 22 L x 17.9 W x 10.4 H (56 x 45.5 x 26.5 cm ) Compact, rugged, lightweight

17 DEFECT SIGNATURES

18 Exact location, type and size identified Each inner diameter defect has its own signature TYPICAL FAULTS Wall Loss pitting, erosion Blockage deposits, dents, welding material Impinging pulse Reflection from a local blockage t Reflection from a local degradation Reflection from a hole

19 SAMPLE SIGNALS Hole Tube Wall Degradation Partial Blockage

20 OPERATION

21 PUTTING DOLPHIN G3 TO WORK Setup (map, parameters) Take measurements Analyze results and generate report

22 STEP 1: SETUP – MAP OUT WORKPLAN Take a digital photo Tubes detected automatically Tubes numbered automatically

23 Tube length Tube outer diameter (OD) Tube wall thickness Ambient temperature STEP 1: SETUP – SET PARAMETERS

24 STEP 2: TAKE THE MEASUREMENTS

25 STEP 3: ANALYZE RESULTS Operator needs to verify the results The software identifies all defects Approve

26 STEP 3: GENERATE REPORT

27 Refineries, fuel processing Power generation utilities Petrochemicals, chemicals Food and beverage Air conditioning (HVAC) Pulp and paper Tube cleaning QA Steel factories MARKETS SERVED Industrial sectors / applications

28 ASME Standard in process ASTM Initial stages INDUSTRY STANDARDS

29 AcousticEye technology validation study Findings report published and available THIRD PARTY REPORTS Southwest Research Institute (SwRI)

30 SUMMARY Ultra-fast inspection up to 4 in any shape or material Less than 10 seconds per tube, 5 sec.< 20ft. (6m) Breakthrough solution for todays hard-to-inspect tubes Boilers, Fin Fans, u-bend, twisted… Proven, patented APR technology Non-invasive, no consumable inventory European customer base and presence
