Criteria for selecting the DWSI or DWDI or Elliptical techniques in in-service pipes

Dear friends
Thank you for your comments on IQI selection in double wall radiography of pipes.
Now, I have two problems:
1- What are the criteria for selecting the radiography technique in double wall radiography of pipes?
In some standards such as ASTM and ASME, when pipe diameter is up to 89 mm, double wall and double image radiography technique shall be used.
But we can not see the clear criterion for selecting the elliptical technique in ASTM or ASME. In API if pipe diameter is up to 63 mm, elliptical should be used.

2- Another problem is maximum allowable source to film distance (SFD) in double wall single image radiography. For example, when minimum SFD is 120 and pipe diameter is 95 mm, what is the practical SFD?
Or, when minimum SFD is 140 and pipe diameter is 95 mm, what is the practical SFD? I think that if SFD is set to 140, the image of upper wall cause in decreasing image quality.
I look forward your comments.

Thank you,
Kaveh

Hi Kaveh
As you wrote, there are some chalenge in this case. But you are free in many cases for technique selection in radiography according to your experience.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
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.
