pipeline integrity

Ultrasonic Shear Wave testing utilizes high frequency sound energy to inspect welds and materials with extreme accuracy.

By utilizing automated scanning systems, corrosion mapping can be taken to a whole new level of accuracy and dependability.

Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing is an advanced ultrasonic method of testing that is highly effective for a multitude of different inspection tasks.

Time of Flight Diffraction method is a sensitive and accurate method for the non-destructive testing of weld defects.

The 3D testing scan is perfectly scaled to be representative of the real geometry and allows easy external defect visualization and sizing.

Carbon Equivalency Testing (CE/OES)

This testing is used on ferrous materials to determine various properties of the alloy.

 

Ultrasonic Straight Beam testing utilizes high frequency sound energy to produce highly accurate thickness measurements.

Visual Inspection (VT)

Visual Inspection (VT) is utilized prior to any other inspection technique.

Magnetic Particle Testing (MT) is an inspection method that is utilized to detect both surface and very shallow subsurface defects.

Pipe to Soil Potential

Pipe to Soil Potential measures the cathodic protection (CP) on and around the pipeline

MIC Testing

When micro-organisms play a role in the corrosion of the pipeline or vessel, the corrosion is classified as Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC).

Soil Resistivity

Soil resistivity is a function of soil moisture and the concentrations of ionic soluble salts and is considered to be the most comprehensive indicator of a soil's corrosivity.

Coating Inspection

A visual coating inspection is done to help confirm a specific anomaly's location and can also help determine the possible cause of the defect.

Soil PH

The PH of the soil surrounding a pipeline can provide a general guide to the nature of the possible corrosion.

Entrapped Water PH

The PH measurement of trapped water beneath disbonded coating can aid in answering questions about the pipeline's integrity.
