Tubing wall thickness measurements.

Hi.
I am looking to get a complete picture of wall thickness (i.e 360 degree view all along the length) for many sections of steel pipe with inner diameters ranging from 8.5" to 12.5". I have access to both the inside and outside of the pipe. Ideally, I would like a device which could operate in dry pipe in the store yard, but failing that the pipe could be filled with sea water.
Anyone know of suitable products out there?
Thanks.

Re: Tubing wall thickness measurements.
If you have access to the outside of the wall - our Large Structure Inspecition (LSI) System - can handle the diameter ranges you have given. It can produce the full 360 degree view that you require (C-Scan) - as well as provide statistical data and results. In addition, we have software that can "stitch" individual images together to produce a CONTINUOUS "picture" (with the backup data) of the complete length of pipe (it doesn't matter how long it is) - in ONE view.

I will send you an example of a scanned pipe section via your e-mail.

Feel free to contact me for more information

Re: Tubing wall thickness measurements.
I think you can use a B-Scan system and perform a Scan from outside diameter. Ultratek and LeCour have a portable external cards (US BOX) that you can conect to a PC and perform the B-SCAN.

Re: Tubing wall thickness measurements.
You could also utilize an IRIS ultrasonic system (from the ID) using regular water as a couplant. Contact Pan American Industries

Also visit Panamiris.com and look at the IRISPig. It was developed for measuring wall thickness in pipes from the ID.
