guided wave ultrasonic testing for pipeline inspection in oil and gas industry

Why choose guided wave ultrasonic testing? LRUT (Long range ultrasonic testing) or sometimes called as GWT (guided wave testing) is becoming commonplace today for pipeline inspection. This technology is used as excellent NDT for the screening tool. Guided wave ultrasonic inspection offer many advantages such as High productivity (kms per day), access required only at discrete locations, carried out with pipe on-line ( not require shutdown) and 100% coverage except for flanges, tees and other large features. This LRUT/GWT technology come as a solution for pipeline inspection problem like restricted access, many lines not suitable for in-line inspection (ILI /[…]
