Inspection of Furnace Radiant Tubes

Dear All,

I want to get a "benchmark inspection data" for the inspection techniques employed on Furnace Radiant / Catalyst Tubes in chemical industries.

For starting , here is the data at our plant:

Company: Engro Chemical Pakistan Limited
Furnace Type: Terrase type Reforming Furnace
Furnace Make: Foster Wheeler
Inspection Type: Ultrasonic (Conam) for creep detection

You all are requested to please share your data with me.

Hoping for your cooperation,

Regards

Re: Inspection of Furnace Radiant Tubes
Dear All,

In continuation with my following massage, I want to know the means of calucating the remaining life calculation of Furnace Radiant Tubes.

How we can assess the remaining life of the tubes?

regards

Re: Inspection of Furnace Radiant Tubes
Good Day Mr. Qaisar Abbas,

The combined use of LOTIS and LifeQuest-Reformer can provide both inspection and remaining life calculations for the radiant tubes in your Steam Reformer. LOTIS has been applied as a reliable reformer tube inspection program for well over a decade, with +150,000 tubes inspected to date. LifeQuest-Reformer has also been applied to calculate remaining life assessments on reformer tubes. You can contact the senior metallurgist, Charles Thomas in charge of these programs at C.Thomas@QuestReliability.com.

Regards, Rich

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak
...
es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
