Effect of Pipe Diameter on Ultrasonic Weld Inspection

I am looking for some information on the practical effects of pipe diameter with respect to girth weld inspection. If someone could point me towards a concise published report it would be greatly appreciated.

My interest is related to API 1104 section 11.4.4 (20th/19th). We would like to take advantage of the greater latitude afforded by the revised requirements of the 20th edition with respect to combining the qualification of similar weld procedures when qualifying UT.

All else equal, it may prove fairly straight forward to justify a combined UT qualification for a 42" OD and a 52" OD. What about 6"/8"/10"?.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
