UT OF POWER PIPING

DEAR EXPERTS,

WE AHD COMPLETED A JOB WITH RT,NOW CLIENT ASKING FOR UT AT SITE &IF ANY FLAW FOUND THEY WANT TO RECTIFY AT OUR COST.

BUT AS PER MY EXPERIENCE I THINK THAT RT &UT RESULTS WILL NOT BE MATCH.

WILL YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY?

Re: UT OF POWER PIPING
Flaws or cracks perpendicular to the surface cannot be detected by radiography, hence the follow up with ultrasonics flaw detection technique.

Re: UT OF POWER PIPING
Bob, I think you mean flaws or crack parrallel to the surface cannot be detected. Indications perpendicular to the surface are ideal for detection with RT and UT angle beam.
I dont really understand what your client is telling you. UT will probably show the flaws to be longer than RT would have. If your contract called for RT , then that is the acceptance criteria you have to go by. If they want to change the contract they should give you a change order and be prepared to pay for it.

Re: UT OF POWER PIPING
My sincere apologies for the slip up. Yes, you are right.
What I actually meant was, flaws or cracks parallel to the surface cannot be detected by radiography, hence the follow up with UT.

Re: UT OF POWER PIPING
May be it was a misunderstanding about parallel and perpendicular.Cracks can be detected if they are parallel to the radiation beam so this means perpendicular to the surface

I think that I'm missing something here! is it not the clients responsibility to specify the inspection technique! Was there a client spec requireing both UT & RT?
Did the client approve the inspection procedures etc etc.
I cant see how you are responsible for the quality of the welding unless you did that too!
