Atlas ultrasonic geometry (UG) is a combined geometry inspection service, based on Evo Series 1.0 ultrasonic technology. The introduction of Atlas UG deformation measurement allows for the completion of a comprehensive inspection in a single run. The Atlas UG geometry tool delivers direct ultrasonic measurements of dents with a resolution down to 0.1 mm (0.004 in). Due to its high performance specification and enhanced assessment, the Atlas UG tool can help significantly reduce the number of unnecessary digs.

Atlas UG Measurement

When an Atlas UG sensor module combines with an Evo Series 1.0 tool, it delivers a combined solution for accurate measurements of corrosion, crack and geometry. This video shows how our Atlas tool module can combine with crack or metal loss tools. The key focus is the geometry sensors: The red lines shown here depict the sensor waves, while the curve represents the complete coverage.

Dent With Metal Loss

Here is an example of the Combined Atlas UG Tool collecting data on a "Dent with Metal loss" defect. By combining a corrosion assessment with ultrasonic-based geometry measurement, it is possible to conduct a comprehensive inspection in a single run. Combined geometry and corrosion means that multiple datasets are obtainable from a single inspection run, lowering costs for the pipeline operator. This video shows the process of the Atlas UG (the red waves) and Evo Series 1.0 UC ( the light blue waves) tools identifying the presence and location of a dent with metal loss defects.

Dent With Crack

Using a combination of Atlas UG and Evo Series 1.0 UC tool, we can accurately detect and align a dent with a crack. Similar to the "Dent with Metal Loss" video, here we see the process of the Atlas UG (the red waves) and Evo Series 1.0 UC ( the light blue waves) tools identifying the presence and location of a crack in the dent. The accuracy of the measurement directly affects the precision of the integrity assessment.

Ovality

On display here is the Atlas tool's ovality detection capabilities. Ovality, or out of roundness, can occur during pipe manufacturing, transportation or through incorrect storage. It can also occur through bending or pressure from external loads. The Atlas UG tool offers 80% certainty with a Probability of Detection (POD) >/=90%.

Deformation Detection: Wrinkle

The Atlas UG tool's capability for accurately recording a wrinkle is on display here. A wrinkle is a localized deformation of a pipe wall, which are usually in high strain areas and could be indicators of imminent pipeline buckling. A dominant outward bulge, which is more severe than that of a ripple, characterizes a wrinkle. It is important to note the Mechanical Caliper arms' behavior in this video: Because the Caliper arm cannot obtain an accurate measurement, you receive inaccurate data. The measurement often identifies as noisy data.

Comparison With Caliper Inspection

This video shows a comparison between an Atlas UG and a mechanical caliper-based inspection. It is important to note the behavior of the caliper tool in the slowed down sequence. It does not give an accurate reading of the dent's shape as the caliper arm contacts the dent before the arm's peak, giving a misrepresentation of the shape.

A Complete Measurement Solution

Atlas UG uses multiple sensor carriers that ensure complete wall coverage. As these sensor carriers are wave-like in shape, they introduce an overlap. The combination inspection data fully aligns and offers enhanced identification and classification of defects, particularly those associated with dents.

High-Resolution Ultrasonic Geometry

The use of high-resolution ultrasonic geometry ensures that the results will show complete coverage of the pipe wall The Atlas UG maintains its coverage through bends with no loss of data. The combination tool means that only one run is required to identify any presence of the defects pinpointed here. As there are no mechanical calipers present, there is no risk of damaging the tool.
