Ultrasonic time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD) is a popular method widely used in petrochemical, energy and other industries for the in-service detection and characterisation of weld defects such as root corrosion, porosity, inclusions, and cracks.
A solution was sought to monitor erosion caused by ore tailings from a mining operation in South America.
The subsequent wall-loss has the potential to cause failures and loss of containment, resulting in lost productivity, and damage to nearby population and environment. Find out more in this latest case study.
A demonstration of the Ionix high-temperature TOFD transducers, with integrated wedges, for their suitability for weld inspection at elevated temperatures up to 240 °C is shown here. The wedges are mounted on to a modified EddyFi Lyncs scanner for high-temperature
encoding, with high-temperature couplant, connected to commercially available UT sets from EddyFi and
Ionix high-temperature TOFD transducers, with integrated wedges, are suitable for weld inspection at elevated temperatures up to 350 °C. Here, the transducers with integrated wedges are mounted on to a modified EddyFi Lyncs scanner for high-temperature encoding, with high-temperature couplant, connected to commercially
available Mantis UT set, and a carbon steel plate inspected at 240 °C for lack of side wall fusion and notches in the weld.
An automated solution for in-service corrosion monitoring of multiple refinery process units was sought by a major oil company, read this case study to find out more.
A solution to make wall thickness measurements of pipes, during operation, at a pulp mill was sought by, a world leader in manufacturer of tissue, pulp, paper and packaging. Read the full case study to find out more.
Direct Integration of HotSense™ UT Wall Monitoring Sensors into Plant Optimisation and Control Systems
A European refinery had identified a number of high temperature locations which were showing increased corrosion and required increased monitoring. They sought an automated system which could provide automated, on-stream
wall thickness measurements with data being used by both asset integrity and process control teams. Read the full case study here.
