Topographic laser mapping for OD Pipe corrosion


I'm looking for information on a system that provides an x y manipulator that has a laser
attached for topographic mapping. This system will be utilized on 24" to
42" pipe that is under severe SCC attack and will be used in remote
areas in a temperature range of -40 C to +20 C. Minimum umbilical
length would be around 25".

Re: Topographic laser mapping for OD Pipe corrosion
Mr. Hermanutz,

QUEST Integrated, Inc. in Kent, Washington, USA builds several types of laser based NDT equipment. Two models (400N & 200K) of the Laser-Optic Tube Inspection System (LOTIS) apply Laser Profilometry to map the interior surface of tubes covering ID ranges between 0.50" to 5.5". When the LOTIS is finished mapping the tubes interior surface the software allows the inspection technician to view the data in several high resolution views, such as Plan View, 3D Isometric, Axial & Circumferential Cross Sectional.

At one time QUEST considered building a external pipe laser mapping system for Alyeska Pipeline to use on the Alaskan Transatlantic pipeline but that never materialized.

If you want additional information with regards to QUEST’s various laser mapping equipment you can visit http://www.qi2.com or call (253) 872-1275.

Dear Mr. Hermanutz,
I'm involved in the design and development of laser-based NDT systems. I would ask the following question: Are you trying to obtain a 3-D profile? Or are you trying to locate the surface-breaking cracks? We have developed a laser-scanning method (patent pending) that might solve your problem. Please check our web site at nwra.com or contact me directly at doyle@nwra.com

I look forward to discussing your application and perhaps assisting you in a solution.

Best regards,

James Doyle
Manager, NDT Systems

TOPAZ® 64: Fully Integrated Portable 64 Channel PAUT Instrument with FMC & TFM

Introducing TOPAZ64, the industry’s most intelligent fully integrated, portable 64-channel phased
...
array ultrasound (UT) instrument. TOPAZ64 combines code-compliant phased array UT with the industry’s most advanced full matrix capture (FMC) and total focusing method (TFM) capabilities. Featuring the highest acquisition frequency in its class, high resolution FMC and a 12” multi-touchscreen, users can easily visualize even the smallest flaws. TOPAZ64 can generate a bipolar pulse that provides more acoustic energy versus previous models for punching through thick components. The result is a portable tool that delivers increased inspection coverage, more accurate signals, and the ability to handle all UT inspections in one package. TOPAZ64 is ideal for challenging applications in transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing and power generation.

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
