Non-contact Diagnostic Methods
The portable EMI system for inspecting drill pipes.
The PipeScope 60-170 drill pipe diagnostic system is designed to perform
electromagnetic express inspecting (EMI) to detect transverse defects in the
drill pipe wall, to identify defects associated with changes in pipe wall thickness
(internal and external general corrosion), as well as to identify pinholes defects.
The testing conforms with the DS1 standard. The system is portable and
designed for high-speed testing of drill pipes in the field.
In addition, the PipeScope 60-170 system allows user to measure the diameter and ovality of drill pipes, at the same time with electromagnetic inspection. The user also can use a magnetization coil for magnetic particle inspection of the pipe body, ends of drill pipe and threads.
PipeScope Viewer software displays an animated 3D model of the pipe with defects. Visualization of C-scans allows user to determine the exact position of defects with angular and linear coordinates.
The program settings allow user to change numerous control parameters, select the criteria by which pipes will be rejected, select the information that will be added in automatically generated reports.
Pipe inspection complex
The complex is designed to detect defects in pipelines using an in-line diagnostic robot and assess the residual life of defective sections.
The technology does not require preliminary preparation of the pipe, it allows you to control the state of the metal through a layer of deposits up to 30mm.
The diagnostic robot of the complex is equipped with six tracks, allowing to pass areas with a significant level of pollution.
The robot is controlled by an operator located inside the autolaboratory-the mobile control panel of the complex, at the place of loading the robot into the pipe. Loading takes place through a technological cut of a pipe measuring 400x600mm. The total number of operating personnel is 2 people.
Pulsed eddy current flaw detector
The PE1437 Pulsed Eddy Current Flaw Detector measures the averaged metal thickness under the sensor. It is suitable for searching for general area corrosion located both on the external and internal surface of metal. The device implements an algorithm that corrects the measured data after a change in the insulation thickness, i.e. a change in the insulation thickness associated e.g. with the insulation sagging; makes a minor effect on the device’s readings.
PE1437 Pulsed Eddy Current Flaw Detector can detect corrosion areas in steel objects without any preparation of surface.
There is no need to remove scale, dirt, paint etc. The total thickness of scale deposits or paint can be up to 30 mm.
Pulsed eddy current flaw detector
The Pulsed eddy current flaw detector PE4222 is designed to detect a corrosion under insulation:
The device allows:
to detect a corrosion under insulation (CUI)
to detect a corrosion under fireproofing (CUF)
to detect corrosion under any coatings.
The system Features:
The measurement are independent from changes in the thickness of the insulation on the pipes associated with sagging insulation.
The device has the automatic measurement of insulation thickness
The device can automatic to define the parameters of the insultation casing (The device it self defines the material of the casing and its thickness)
The presence of a display on the sensor allows the user to see information about the current coordinate of the sensor and the measured metal thickness
The sensor is equipped with a flashlight that allows user to work with the device in the dark
The presence of a quick-detachable battery
Low weight of the device in comparison with analogues
The displays of the device and probes are covered impact-resistant hardened glass.
