Pipeline inspection

Greetings

Looking for a solution to detect longitudinal cracks in "in-service" pipelines 6"-12" OD, Wall thickness 12-14mm. External scanning methods only. No access to bore.

Re: Pipeline inspection
Hi! You may use ultrasonic shear wave technique, I will assume per your message that cracks runs parallel to the pipe axis. In this case you may manufacture a special transducer that fit the outer surface of the pipe, and perform the scan in order to detect on the first leg in case that cracks start at the inner surface. You may also manufacture a standard with the same geometry and material of the pipe you are inspecting. You may ask to machine several EDM notches of different lenght and depth so you can evaluate the response of your UT system.
Hope that help a little
Best regards

Re: Pipeline inspection
First up all difficult to scanning at 6" pipe because of curvature;If you can use of shoe also difficult to find the scattered cracks longitutunally.
If possible with limitations of service condition and temprature you can go for gamma ray.

...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
