Ultrasonic Inspection in the Oil and Gas industry
The Oil and Gas industry is not only providing energy, it is also the base for many industrial and commercial products.
Ultrasonic testing is widely used in all areas of oil&gas exploration, transportation (pipelines) and further processes for production of secondary products (refineries, fertilizer plants and other petrochemical and chemical plants).
Some of the major applications are remaining wall thickness measurement on corroded and eroded parts and the detection of flaws in pressure vessels, pipes and other components.
Almost all weldings in pipelines, pipes, containers, vessels etc. are inspected by ultrasound.
Especially for these versatile applications the United NDT instruments are very well suited due to their rugged design and ease of use.
The United NDT Phased Array products have special advantages as they are very efficient in use, effecting a reduced inspection time and this allows extensive cost savings.
