: Petroleum & Refractory, Inc. can provide the above mentioned services using a automated UT crawler capable of recording A & B scan data or standard single points UT's can be obtained with a push pole crawler (this is a less expensive method) from grade level.

Please contact Ed Beaver or Kal Atchley at 707-748-0124

Re: AST Inspection (crawler) API-653
Physical Acoustics (which has acquired Scanning Systems International - SSI) now has fully automated (as well as manual) scanners and systems capable of performing either full C-Scan (2-D and 3-D imaging) or B-Scan inspections of large structural sufaces - such as storage tanks, pressure vessels, heat exchanger shells, or pipe lines. Full information can be found at www.scanningsystems.com under the LSI (Large Structure Inspection) System section. Reporting is fully API-653 compliant.

The system is flexible, fast and efficient.

For outside walls the tanks can be in service.

As the subject has been brought up again (original question from March, 1999), we will use the opportunity to inform, that FORCE Institute works with the automated ultrasonic examination system, P-scan system 4, which provides fast and reliable examination by means of magnetic crawlers. FORCE provides advanced NDE services with the P-scan system throughout the world, and has extensive experience with storage tank inspection. For more information please look at www.p-scan.com.
