Phoenix Inspection Systems

Phoenix Inspection Systems manufacture ultrasonic non-destructive testing systems for use in the energy sector, particularly nuclear power plants and oil pipelines.

I would encourage companies to get involved with universities if they want to develop new products.

We get to see our research transferred into real applications, and we better understand the problems that industry have.

Barry Lennox / Professor of Applied Control, The University of Manchester

Researchers from The University of Manchester helped them to develop prototype testing equipment that uses an acoustic pulse to detect defects in pipes.

The solution that the researchers developed was cost-effective and provided a quick route to market for the company.
