Weld inspection with ToFD at IRO 2015
This year we present to you the ToFD-system – a reliable and quick solution for weld inspection especially for thick-walled pipelines. ToFD (Time of Flight Diffraction) a computerized, automated as well partially mechanized imaging ultrasonic testing method. Especially for recurrent tests the recording of data is a great advantage. In partially mechanized use a hand scan is moved along the weld, equipped with a pair of ToFD probes, and is therefore flexible used. The results were displayed in form of a B image where depth extension and longitudes of indicators were assessed online and evaluated.
Also, we will use this opportunity to inform you about our DTI Trekscan (Difficult To Inspect), a new pipeline inspection tool, of which we are in the final stage of completing the production it. This free floating ultrasonic tool is available for nominal sizes from 6’’ to 8’’. The tool is equipped with 160 sensors and moves with a maximum speed of 1,2 m/sec. through liquid filled pipelines. Due to the high sensor density, small internal and external defects (pitting up to 5,0 mm) were detected and sized with high accuracy. The minimum and maximum wall thickness to be measured by the tool is 2,8 mm up to 50 mm. The DTI Trekscan negotiates back to back 1 D bends which is another key feature of our tool.
