Dents and ovalities present unique challenges to asset operations.
Given their potential placement within pipe walls, traditional inspection methods can have difficulty locating them, much less determining their size and depth. Recognizing these challenges and simultaneously understanding the potential threat these anomalies present, NDT Global innovated its Pulse Echo technology to address them.
Traditional pipe mechanical detection methods have been limited in their scope and in the accuracy of their results. Specifically, older techniques relied on substantially fewer sensors that could only identity dents within the circumference of the pipeline, limiting the potential for sizing accuracy of associated deformations.
