Surface indication after MPI
zoom image



Dear All,

Refer to image.Few LW joint show this indication after MPI.Very clear line of indication at weld toe.But what make me confuse is after perform RT and UT , no indication or defect was detected.After do grinding and re-mpi, the indicatiom still occur.Expected this is cold lap.Material is carbon steel,double V welding and SAW welding process.Hope some kniw about this can explain to me.Very appreciated for the help.Thanks.

Hello Huzairi, differenza di permeabilità magnetica tra materiale base e materiale di apporto?

These indications are most probably due to permeability changes between the weld and parent metal.

Whenever such indications are encountered first PT has to be done (later may be RT and UT).

Please do PT and if there are no significant indications you can clear the joint.

However the indications are much sharper than normal. Hope you are going to give a proper thermal treatment like SR.

Best Wishes

...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
