Non-destructive Ring Test for Deepwater Pipes
Posted: 2020-4-23Prior to 2015 no reliable non-destructive test method existed for measuring the collapse pressure of deepwater pipeline joints, which are typically around 12 m (39.3 ft) long. Historically, the industry has favored testing a few specimen joints to destruction, then combining the results with the best available structural design techniques and a substantial safety factor to determine a conservatively safe pipe wall thickness. This approach on several projects led in turn to creation of the best-known design ...Read More.
ViewTech Announces Ultraviolet Articulating Video Borescope
Posted: 2020-4-23Dye penetrant (DP) testing, often referred to as a fluorescent penetrant inspections (FPI), is an important method of nondestructive testing of materials that occurs when a fluorescent dye is applied to a non-porous material surface to detect micro-fractures, delamination, seams and other defects with an ultraviolet light. ViewTech Borescopes is debuting the VJ-3 Ultraviolet (UV) video borescope which facilitates endoscopic dye penetrant testing by detecting internal and external surface defects. These insp...Read More.
