SAW and ERW pipes - standards

does anybody know of specific standards for UT of SAW and ERW pipes?
specificaly i am interested in the standards for inspection of the weld seam.

Look in ASME Section V, Article 4 or 5. The basic calibration blocks for UT are based on the base material not the welding process.
However, the UT operator should be familiar with the welding process in order to determine what type of indications to excpect.

i can tell only for the ERW pipes. N10 & N5 notches at OD & ID are used and through holes at wels seam are used.

Re: SAW and ERW pipes - standards
Standards for ERW and SAW pipe seam welds are similar world wide.
The North American versions are API 5L and in Canada CSA Z-245.
A Standard Practice by ASTM is also used, ASTM E-273.

Product Spotlight

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
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

l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
