Re: Drill Pipe Inspection I would recommend that you first read the articles on the subject that appear in various magazines and the National and International Seminars etc.

Eddy current testing (with magnetic flux saturation) and Ultrasonic testing are very much amenable for drill pipe inspection (before the end fittings are attached). If you so prefer, even dimensional and visual inspection (for specific defects) is possible.

There are manufacturers of automated test systems.

Best wishes.

Swamy
