Tank Xray or magnetomer?

Recommended Posts

I need help to provide a service for my customer.  He has large water cooled diesel engines with large radiators that have steel top tanks that are rusting on the inside.   This occurs because the top tank includes the coolant expansion area and exposed to air on the inside of the tank.  These engines provide critical power in the event of power failure, and he wants me to assess the condition of the tanks without disassembly.  He suggested a magnetometer to measure tank plate thickness to determing if a tank is nearing a failure point.  I am unfamiliar with this area of expertise and wondered if any of you have some ideas?  I am all ears!
