Eclipse UCx

High-precision inspection of axial cracks in welds The NDT Global UCx Enhanced Sizing methodology is capable of sizing the full range of crack depths up to 100% wall thickness. The removal of depth sizing limitations provides operators with more accurate data for better informed decisions regarding pipeline operations.

Enhanced Sizing is an example of the ongoing research and development conducted by NDT Global and is reflected in our core values: Accuracy and Precision, Improvement through Innovation and Passion for Excellence.

NDT Global's UCx technology improves the depth sizing accuracy of cracks by 20%. This advancement further enhances the data operators rely on for the safe operation of their pipeline assets
