Lamp posts inspection with EMAT Medium-Range Guided Waves
Posted: 2018-5-31Corrosion detection becomes especially challenging when a section of the object being inspected is buried, covered, or coated, as the frequent presence of moisture and chemicals in the non-accessible areas can aggravate the degradation process. Due to that reason the investigation of inaccessible areas e.g. lamp posts inspection becomes a matter of vital importance. The loss in metal thickness caused by corrosion can cause sudden failure and significant damage to people and surrounding property.
While wa...Read More.

Cygnus UT FMD Offers Operational Flexibility and the Potential for Big Savings
Flooded Member Detection is an inspection regime designed to screen subsea platform structural members for defects. A cracked weld, for example, can allow the ingress of sea water into the member which may create a point of failure for the structure. Operators therefore inspect these members on a regular basis to gain confidence that there has been no sea water ingress.
There are two recognised non-destructive testing techniques that allow for Flooded Member Inspection; the us...Read More.
