Manufacturing vs. in-service defects

I'm currently looking into the ability of the various NDT's to distinguish between manufacturing defects (unchanged since the start but recently discovered due to improvements in NDT technology) and in-service defects of piping components primarily constructed of carbon steel to ASME SA106 Grade B, plus supplementals SA530 & SA655.
I realize this is a fairly general question but any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Hello;

I spent a few years working on this very issue for the oil and gas industry. Feel free to contact me directly for more information.

NEW Wheel Type Phased Array Probe

DOPPLER NEW Wheel Type Phased Array Probe, more stable, new tyre makes lesser acoustic attenuation
...
, much lighter makes easier to handle, more slim size, magnetic and mechanical encoder optional etc...more

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.
