At the pipelines of refineries, I want to work with PAUT and TOFD methods according to ASME and EN codes, besides of radiography.
Pipes are going to be carbon steel and stainless steel, mostly.
Pipes’ diameters are going to be between 3” and 48” and their thickness’ 3 mm and over.
What is the minimum acceptable thickness?
What is the advantages and disadvantages of this methods ?
What kind of training required and where can it be taken ?
Which devices is needed for the methods mentioned ?
How can i make the selection for the appropriate probes ?
Which one of the devices will be effective for application? (flaw detection, testing time, test evaluation time and the most importantly ofc cost.)
If you answer that questions and keep me informed, i will be glad.
