inspection of Pipelines on rack

We have been asked to perform UT inspection of pipelines held by a rack at some meters of height.
Does anyone know which method can be employed and if there is a company performing this kind of inspection ?

Thanks.

Amedeo.

The Profiler is being used in Australia to measure the total pipe wall thickness and support beam thickness.

Re: inspection of Pipelines on rack
One of the ways to do screening is to use Guided Wave Ultrasonics. If the pipe is uninsulated you can screen considerable distances from one access point onto the pipe.

We can assist you with this.

Please feel free to contact me for more details

Re: inspection of Pipelines on rack
More details of the task needed, really. But for UT of the welds, local corrosion and HIC mapping you could use an automated UT system.

Some P-scan UT info available at ...
