Guided Wave Ultrasonic Testing
PetroChem opened a new era in inspections which can characterize long runs of pipe from a single set-up point using our long-range guided wave ultrasonic testing. The tool is a low-frequency ultrasonic device that can detect corrosion in pipe up to 300 feet in either direction from a single inspection point.
This method requires that insulation be removed or access provided to only 24 inches of clean pipe with 6 inches of clearance above and below circumferentially. The tool can handle pipe sizes from two inches to 60 inches in diameter.
