Revolutionizing Flange Inspection: The Power of Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing for Detecting Crevice Corrosion
Flanged joints play a crucial role in connecting pipes, valves, fittings, and pressure vessels in various industries. However, the design of these joints makes them vulnerable to corrosion, with crevice corrosion being the most common and aggressive type. Crevice corrosion occurs when corrosive substances become trapped within the sealing gasket, leading to serious risks and hazards.
This problem is more pronounced in extremely corrosive environments, making regular inspection and maintenance essential to control and manage associated risks. To address this challenge, the use of phased array ultrasonic testing has emerged as a reliable solution for early detection and management of crevice corrosion in flanged joints. This article explores the applicability of this testing method and highlights its benefits in ensuring safe and efficient operations across various industrial sectors.
Maximizing Offshore Integrity Assessments While Minimizing Marine Growth Removal Requirements
Marine growth is a common issue that plagues offshore assets, obstructing direct access and making it challenging to determine their structural integrity. Non-destructive testing operations are particularly affected by this pesky biological material, necessitating its removal.
This article will examine how long-range ultrasonic testing (LRUT) is already being employed for offshore riser and caisson inspections and how Eddyfi Technologies complementary technologies are significantly enhancing the efficiency of integrity assessments in this domain.
Plane Wave Imaging: The Benefits of Total Focusing Method at High Speed
Plane Wave Imaging (PWI) is an advanced firing mode used by Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT)instruments that achieve the high-resolution of Total Focusing Method (TFM) imaging at ultra-fast scanning speeds. In many cases, Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) can also be improved through PWI implementation, optimizing data quality for challenging inspections at the same time as efficiency.
Interview Series: Brett Hovland on Why Shell Chooses Eddyfi Robotics
Currently the Principal Design Engineer for Alternative Fuels Global Network, Brett Hovland has spent over 27 years of his career with Shell Oil Company.
