ultrasonic pipeline inspection

Considered the gold standard of ultrasonic (UT) inspection, phased array is an advanced non-destructive evaluation method that enhances the sensitivity and efficiency of ultrasonic inspections. Phased array allows for permanent documentation and screen shots of acquired data, enabling planar anomaly monitoring and growth analysis.

Pipeline inspections are an integral component of overall pipeline maintenance and wider risk management practices. These inspections access for pipeline deterioration and, if fou

In-Service and Portable Ultrasonic Testing for Rail Flaw Detection. There are three main types of testing that can be done with ultrasonic testing for rail flaw detection: After manufacturing inspection; Inspection of crossing points (cast manganese frogs) In-service train rail inspection

Dec 02, 2020 · Read Guy’s Pipeline & Gas Journal article, “Using Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing in Lieu of Radiography for Weld Inspections,” in the September 2020 edition of the magazine. NDE (non-destructive evaluation) uses quantitative measurements to identify and characterize a defect in a pipe.

Pipeline leak detection, inspection, tracking and collection. How to choose the right ultrasonic flow meter? The key questions which need to be answered before selecting an ultrasonic flow meter are: 1. Does the liquid have particulates of 100 ppm of 100 microns in size? 2. Do you require a handheld or continuous process monitor? 3.

An excellent example of guided wave inspections where large quantities of data are collected is trunk line inspections. Trunk lines are usually long sections of cross-country pipeline which can be ideal for guided wave inspections. For this type of inspection, it is common to collect data from over a hundred separate test locations (TL).

In the last several years, automated ultrasonic testing (AUT) has begun overtaking traditional radiography as the pipeline weld inspection method of choice throughout the world. Radiography has significant limitations: poor detection of planar defects, no vertical sizing capability, safety issues, and environmental concerns.

The 4-Channel Ultrasonic Imaging System along with an inspection head carrying a novel arrangement of ultrasonic transducers for measurement of sag and dimensions have been utilized. This paper provides details of the sag and dimension measurement of the sample tube and pipe, using the 4-Channel Ultrasonic Imaging System.

There are many ways in which we can strive to produce an excellent report document detailing a guided wave ultrasonic testing inspection. The Report Manager within Wavescan software, used in conjunction with the Teletest Focus+™ instrument, has been designed with this in mind. Incorporating photographs and isometric drawings are helpful and can be useful to explain things that would be very ...
