Utility Mapping for Risk Reduction in Oil and Gas

The importance of utility mapping cannot be overstated in the Oil and Gas industry.  Time critical operations can be delayed during times of emergency if subsurface asset locations are unknown.  Maintenance schedules of critical assets can require adjustments due to the configuration of subsurface infrastructure. Special consideration and concern include the location and identification of [...]

Innovation: the key to effective boiler inspection

Boilers suffer from many forms of degradation while in service. Water wall tubes can incur a range of issues, from hydrogen damage, pitting, ash and soot-blower erosion, graphitisation, under-deposit corrosion, thermal fatigue cracking and creep damage. These types of degradation may impact on the normal running of a company’s facilities, and, ultimately, the operation of the [...]

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

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 [...]
