RT is necessary?

Dear All,

Because the number of the joints those are likely to fail in RT, I will choose not to shoot the joints in an atmospheric (gravity) line
if there is any reference that might help me to avoid from shooting the joints. The line is CS and it shouldn't be a problem if you have a lack of fusion or incomplete penetration etc. as long as the line does not work under pressure.

Your comments are appreciated.

The decision to perform NDT is the result of the design engineering, service and code requirements.
If this line is a drain, for arguement, with an open end then your designers should have specified the extent of NDT, usually as 0% unless you want to undertake inspection to satisfy an internal quality requirement (as part of your ISO system etc).
If however there might be a requirement in the future to change the service conditions i.e. place into pressure service then NDT performed to the required service is wise i.e ASME B31.3 - 5% for Normal Fluid Service.

Hope I havent confused you.

Thank you very much for the reply, think I will issue a concession request to ask the client relieve us from performing RT on those joints.

Thanks again.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
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.
