Re: code for NDT in Hydropower plant
In order to help you, you have to be a little more specific in to what you want to do! There are many different codes that are applicable to power plant.

Thank you Mr. Michel.
Please help me by advice which code or spec. maybe used to NDT examine the penstock of Hydropoer Plant, for example. I think, ASME code B31.1, B31.3 or B31.4 are not really proper for this case. Thanks for your soon reply

Sorry, Mr. Michel,
In this case, I would like to address to the weld joints of pipe of penstock in hydropower plant.
Thanks

Dear Mr. Jawed Ahsan,
Thank you for your response. But I'm affraid that using B31.1 in this case is not very suitable as the scope I refer to below:
100.1.2 Power piping systems as covered by this
Code apply to all piping and their component parts
except as excluded in para. 100.1.3. They include but
are not limited to steam, water, oil, gas, and air services.
"(A) This Code covers boiler external piping as defined
below for power boilers and high temperature, high
pressurewater boilers in which: steam or vapor is generated
at a pressure of more than 15 psig [100 kPa (gage)];
and high temperature water is generated at pressures
exceeding 160 psig [1103 kPa (gage)] and/or temperatures
exceeding 250°F (120°C)."
I hope I may receive the advice in more detail.
Thank you very much.

There are in Italy many standards for NDT on hydropower plant components. Please contact
Ezio.Tuberosa@iride-energia.it ciao

Dear DAO DUY DUNG
My Friend Tuberosa give me two norm-project on hydraulic machinery but in the meantime i see that you are interesting in penstocks-inspection. I remember that our electricity company have specification on penstock inservice inspection. If you are yet interested I will reserch for you that specification, but attention, they are in italian!!
I look to your response, ciao, Ezio

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
