Investigation Techniques

NDT(Non Destructive Testing)  methods are utilized in the oil and gas industry, to address issues regarding safety, equipment reliability, and environmental protection and government regulations. The Conventional Techniques like Visual inspection is an inexpensive method for detecting equipment flaws and defect.  Ultrasonic testing utilizes sound waves uses the photoelectric effect of the ultrasonic transducer makes it possible to transmit and receive from within the equipment. Radiographic methods utilize X-ray or gamma rays (electromagnetic radiation) to examine the internal structure and integrity of the equipment. Thermographic inspection measures the difference between the temperature of a pipeline and the surrounding environment. Acoustic emissions detects the presence of rarefaction waves produced by leaks in pipelines. The advanced NDT methods as follows:  Novel Radioisotope Inspection, Ultrasonic phased array (PA),Time of flight diffraction (ToFD), Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) ,Automatic ultrasonic testing (AUT).
