Hydrogen embritllement study using UT

I am interested in knowing the techniques used in identfying the presence of Hydrogen embrittlement in hydrocracking vessels in oil refineries ( thickness about 100 mm. )

Re: Hydrogen embritllement study using UT
The easiest method for you may be to utilize a manual Rockwell hardness tester. Compared to a known calibrator, you may establish RC hardness guidelines.

Re: Hydrogen embritllement study using UT
AEA Sonomatic BV has been working in this area for over
a decade now and has build up a vast reference in this
application. Procedures were validated with clients and
Authorised Inspection bodies such as Stoomwezen (1992)
and TueV Nord (1999). Procedures are based upon research
of established research institutes and our own research
and practical experiences.

ults for a wide range of applications. Available in a single or dual tube configuration, it is perfect for very small to medium size parts inspection in the automotive, electronics, aviation, and material science industries.

IRIS 9000Plus - Introducing the next generation of heat exchanger inspection.

Representing the seventh generation of the IRIS system, the IRIS 9000 Plus has nearly 200 years of c
ombined field inspection experience incorporated in its design. This experience combined with a strong commitment to quality and a history of innovation has made Iris Inspection Services® the undisputed leader in IRIS technology.

Conformable wedge transducer

The conformability is obtained with a flexible membrane filled with water between the transducer and
the inspected component. The coupling between the membrane and the component requires a small quantity of water or couplant. The conformable wedge combines the acoustic performance of immersion technique with good coupling and low attenuation.

High-performance Linear Phased Array Probes

Available to order from stock in a range of 5MHz – 7.5MHz and from 16 to 64 elements. Designed w
ith piezo-composite elements, Phoenix phased array probes provide high-resolution imaging to maximise sensitivity; accurate ultrasonic detection and sizing of defects in welds; and effective corrosion mapping. Housed in a rugged stainless steel case for on-site industrial NDT applications.
