Automated ERW Process-Control Inspection Using PA and Conventional UT Technology

Automated ERW Process-Control Inspection Using PA and Conventional UT Technology

Inspecting weld integrity during ERW pipe manufacturing is an industry requirement. Traditional inspection systems use operator-controlled weld alignment to ensure the correct position of the ultrasonic testing (UT) probe. As material quality and performance standards continuously evolve, so do the inspection requirements. Our solution for process-control of ERW pipes stands out because it automatically positions the conventional UT probes for the inspection using a patented weld tracking algorithm and a phased array (PA) probe. The result is a fully automated, easy-to-use ERW inspection system that helps ensure the quality of ERW welded pipes by inspecting the weld for flaws while simultaneously monitoring the scarfing profile.

In this webinar, the presenter will demonstrate:

  • The importance of accurate and automatic weld tracking for inspection of ERW welded pipes
  • Key advantages of the Olympus solution, including the combination of flaw detection and weld profiling in one system and software
  • The capacity of PAUT probes to meet operating-temperature demands

On the agenda:

  • A short technical presentation by the Olympus tube inspection expert
  • Videos of the system in action, to highlight the key features
  • An interactive Q&A session with the audience

In addition, our collaborator Blue Star Engineering and Electronics will provide an overview of complementary tube inspection solutions.
