Computed Radiography CR

Computed radiography (CR) is a filmless process that is used to create digital, 2-dimensional radiographs. CR provides the ability to view radiographic images from a computer using the same conventional radiography exposure equipment. It eliminates the need for chemical processing, uses lower source strength, enables smaller boundaries and yields quicker results. Images have greater definition [...]

  • Developments in digital radiographic inspection

Developments in digital radiographic inspection

In many cases a conventional radiographic inspection technique is used to control welding quality during the construction of cross-country pipelines. For large-diameter pipelines, battery-powered crawler systems are used, containing an X-ray tube that operates inside the pipeline. As a consequence, the pipeline sections must be limited in length to allow the deployment of a radiographic [...]

  • UAV technology

Applus+ utilises the latest UAV (drone) technology in inspection of FPSO ship’s hull

The external structure of in-service floating assets can be difficult and risky places to inspect with traditional methods. To solve this problem, Applus+ utilises the latest in UAV (drone) techniques, which enables us to carry out comprehensive remote visual inspections (RVIs) for the oil and gas and marine sectors. To ensure reliability, safety and efficiency, [...]

  • Radiography Inspection

Radiography Inspection Method through CR

If there is one thing in life we can always be certain of, it is change and the constant evolution of technology. Change is not something we should fear, rather embrace; this is especially true in technology. In recent years the technology used in the Radiography Inspection method has gone through some phenomenal changes. The [...]

  • Geo-hazard Monitoring of Pipelines using Strain Gauges

Geo-hazard Monitoring of Pipelines using Strain Gauges

Introduction Pipelines are sometimes subjected to various geo-hazards such as long wall mining subsidence and slope movement. A commonly practiced method to reduce stress in such situations is to expose the affected portion of a pipeline. Monitoring of stress in an affected pipeline is a necessary component of a proper remedial plan. But strain gauges [...]

  • CiBot carburization measurements

CiBot carburization measurements: The process that allows non-destructive inspection on radiant coils in the furnaces

Applus+ has in cooperation with Texplore a new solution for carburization measurements, the CiBot Carburization Measurements. Carburization is the formation of metal carbides in a material as a result of exposure to a carbon containing atmosphere. In service, it can result in loss of mechanical properties over time in addition to wastage of the material. [...]
