Inspection of annular plate

Hi

Does anyone have input on the latest development in ultrasonic inspection of storage tank annular plate while the tank is in operation. So the scanning surface is from outside the tank.

Regards

William

Hello William,
Are you looking for inspection of inner fillet weld between bottom shell and annular plate? If so PAUT applied in conjuction with a specifically developed and validated system (Procedure, Personnel, Equipment) can be a suitable option. If your focus is on tank floor then depending on the dimension of the tanks AET and LRU are other two techniques that are being used for inservice (online) inspection.
Regards
Harendra

Hello

Short Range UT is good to inspect annular plate from outside when Tank is in operations.
You can send energy inside approx 2 / 2.5 meters range to inspect annular plate.
If you need more help please contact us.
