Rolling on to Better Tank Inspection Data and Decision Making
Posted: 2023-3-7Many owners of storage tanks understand the burden of inspecting tank shells and roofs for corrosion degradation. On one hand, the inspection quality needs to be met, while on the other hand personnel safety needs to be ensured. To make it even more complicated, downtime of the asset must be minimized. A traditional way of performing tank wall thickness degradation inspection is by ultrasonic wall thickness spot check measurements using a rope access approach or by building scaffolding. This approach leads ...Read More.
When PoD Matters – Microbially Induced Corrosion
Posted: 2023-2-21Quality assurance during manufacturing is being extended to online inspection and integrity management for aging plants given the increased awareness of the consequences of in-service damage mechanisms. Microbially Induced Corrosion, or MIC, is a common problem in carbon steel pipelines, often causing isolated corrosion pitting due to biological growth. The main risk of MIC is its ability to eat through a pipe or tube wall in a matter of weeks, particularly if equipment is left with stagnant, untreated wate...Read More.
The Aerial Advantage: New Confined Space Inspection Drone is Available at Fiberscope.net
Posted: 2023-2-16Drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have entered many industries recently. It is not an exaggeration to say that drones have revolutionized certain areas of our life. The industrial inspection business was not left behind, and the enhanced model of the Skycopter Cobra inspection drone is tangible proof of this.

Heat Exchanger Defect Detection Near Support Plates Enhanced by New RFA Technology
Posted: 2023-2-14Critical defect detection and characterization during petrochemical plant shutdowns is non-negotiable. Remote-field testing (RFT) technology is a standard method for inspecting carbon steel heat exchanger tubing, but the technology has its limits. Critical defects like pitting, corrosion, and baffle wear can be hidden underneath or near support plates and are nearly impossible to distinguish from the support plate signal itself using RFT technology. Even a single petrochemical heat exchanger can contain ove...Read More.

Putting Ultrasonic Nozzle Weld Inspection into Perspective With a 3D Environment
Posted: 2023-1-31The non-destructive testing inspection of welds in nozzles can be a difficult application to get right, ensuring all defect types of interest can be properly detected and located within the weld. The use of Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) gives many benefits compared to radiography and is widely adopted as the method of choice for these complex configurations. However, there are many technical challenges that Level III inspectors and operators must consider when designing and carrying out PAUT weld i...Read More.
