International supplier of inline inspection (ILI) and data analysis, NDT Global, has released a new combined inspection service dubbed Atlas UG.
Based on Evo Series 1.0 ultrasonic technology, the introduction of Atlas UG deformation measurement means that a comprehensive inspection can be completed in a single run.
Atlas UG delivers direct ultrasonic measurement of dents with a depth resolution down to 0.1 mm (0.004 in). The use of ultrasonic geometry with overlapping sensor measurements, ensures complete coverage of the pipe wall and this coverage is maintained in bends.
The absence of any mechanical calipers ensures that there is no risk of damage to the tool and allows the flexibility to perform bi-directional inspections.
Speaking on the service release, NDT Global’s COO Any Bain said “Combined features such as cracks or corrosion associated with dents represent a special threat to the integrity of pipelines, and better identification provides operators the data needed to safely manage their pipeline assets.”
NDT Global supplies ultrasonic pipeline inspection and data analysis. The company’s inspection fleet provides inline inspection services for onshore and offshore pipelines worldwide.
