PROTON™ Wins Second Industry Award

NDT Global are delighted to announce the recently launched phased array ultrasonic service, PROTON™ has won its second industry award - the 2023 Innovation Award at the 35th International Pipeline Pigging and Integrity Management Conference.

The PPIM Innovation Award highlights new and exciting developments in our industry and is presented to companies whose technologies have made a significant contribution to the advancement of pipeline integrity. Finalists for the award are selected by a panel comprised of thought leaders across the industry and the winner is selected by a public vote.

At NDT Global, we know pipeline operators face many challenging circumstances while maintaining the safety of their personnel, operations, and community. Understanding the truest condition of any pipeline continues to be the single most important insight an operator can have – it is only through delivering actionable insights that operators can make informed pipeline management decisions.

PROTON is a highly configurable phased array inspection platform. Multi-angle sampling allows the best depth tool tolerance available in the market by means of multiple indirect crack measurement techniques and direct crack tip measurement for critical features. The multiple angles cover a wide range of crack features such as hook cracks, lack of fusion, lack of penetration, weld anomalies, and SCC, amongst other linear indications.

Product Manager, Ryan Sikes commented, "An award of this magnitude is the result of many dedicated and passionate NDT Global colleagues who are constantly pushing the boundaries of technology and innovation. For PROTON, this is especially true of the Service Development Teams from Technology Services and Data Services. Without their expertise and passion, we never would have developed this amazing service and won this prestigious award."
