1. TI-18 FULL BODY ULTRASONIC
The TI-18 ultrasonic inspection process includes sixteen (16) flaw detection transducers, coupled with two (2) compression wave thickness transducers provide an inspection unequaled in today's marketplace. Flaw
detection transducers, set at increments of twenty-two and one half degrees provide total analysis for all imperfections regardless of their orientation. Transducers at each end
of the inspection array are capable of interrogation of imperfections within two
(2) inches of the exposed plain end of the pipe. Due to the inherent flexibility of the array setup,
requested customer specifications can easily and quickly be set.
The width of the transducer's beam, frequency and size, are used to calculate the maximum helix permissible for any given diameter
and wall thickness of material being inspected. This helix is constantly being recomputed and displayed on a digital readout by a microprocessor driven totalizer.
2. TI-10 FULL BODY ULTRASONIC
The TI-10 ultrasonic inspection process is intended for those customers that want an inspection that is equivalent to
standard ultrasonic inspection offered in today's marketplace. Not only
is this process sensitive to those imperfections that occur in the longitudinal and transverse
geometrics, but also included are four (4) oblique flaw detection transducers, set angles
established by customer specifications. The associated production speeds approach those obtainable by
EMI (Electromagnetic Inspection).
Although the TI-10 inspection uses less transducers, all other associated criteria of the TI-18 inspection is incorporated to insure the highest quality available in the marketplace today.
3. TI-6 FULL BODY ULTRASONIC
The TI-6 ultrasonic inspection process has all the features of the TI-10 process described in
paragraph, with the exception that no oblique angles are included. This inspection process is provided specifically for the
client who is primarily interested in an inspection equivalent to EMI, but with improved sensitivity to
internal imperfections and an enhanced wall thickness measurement.
Gamma systems used in today's EMI machines indicate relative wall changes based upon a known area thickness. At best, coverage of the pipe wall is about
twenty-five percent (25%). The TI-6 inspection, unlike the gamma systems, offers real time ultrasonic thickness inspection based on the actual velocity of the material being
inspected. The data provided by this type of inspection offers accuracy of
approximately plus or minus one thousandth of an inch (.001"). The
inspection coverage is a minimum of one hundred and ten percent (110%),
and is unequaled by today's gamma systems.
4. FULL LENGTH UT WELD LAMINATION
Ultrasonic scans of the weld area of the pipe, using the proper transducers and inspection according to TI evaluations
of the material. Special customer requirements will be provided with individual quotes.
