Remote NDE

Looking for information on performing MT or PT examinations and RT remotely? All tasks as part of the processes must be performed with remote tooling.

The ASME code requirement is to perform a surface examination (MT or PT) and RT on a pipe butt weld that is only accessible by remote tools. The weld will also be made remotely.

Anyone done anything like this before?

Any help would be appreciated.

VTS have carried out PT, MT and replication remotely. If you would like to send more details on your requirement we can advise if we can provide a solutuion.

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
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
