phased array weld testing

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.

Planar anomalies, including cracks and crack-like features, and other weld defects; 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 for weld inspection can also be used in lieu of radiography, and has been accepted by most codes in the industry including, ASME B31.1 Power Piping, ASME B31.3 Process Piping, ASME Section VIII Pressure Vessels, and API 650 Above Ground Storage Tanks. Some advantages of Phased Array are the following: • Non-intrusive

The system consists of a phased array electronically controlled transducer test head which is held and positioned by a 5-axis robot. The robot can be preprogrammed to move to the weld line test position, a calibration position, or quickly retract to safety when integrated signals from the mill’s PLC indicate open welds, cut outs and other ...

Dec 05, 2020 · In Phased array ultrasonic testing, along with range calibration/velocity calibration and reference curve calibration (TCG/DAC), the NDT operator shall perform two additional calibrations called depth calibration (wedge delay) and sensitivity calibration (angle vs amplitude). This content discusses the four-phased array calibration steps in detail.

Once data from TL03 is collected, we need to identify how far the weld marker is from TL03. Remember, we selected weld 12 at 168.65 meters (553 feet) from datum (as shown in Figures 6 and 8). Figure 9: TL03 feature list. We can see from the Feature List in Figure 9 that weld 12 is currently 45.89 meters (151 feet) behind the TL03 tool position.
