Insulated Pipe Inspection
The Long Range Guided Wave Ultrasonic Technique now called Guided Wave Testing (GWT) was designed to inspect 100% of a pipe segment from one single location.
How it Works:
To explain how it works as torsional or longitudinal guided waves are induced into the pipe body and propagated along the pipe segment being inspected. When these guided waves identify an anomaly or pipe feature, the waves convert into laminar waves and reflect back to the GWT Tool’s original location. We use a laptop computer to digitally capture the results. The time-of-flight for each signature is calculated to determine it's distance from the tool. The cross sectional area is calculated by amplitude and then the circumferential extent determined by the focused to determine the significance of the defect.
The primary application is within the Oil and Gas Refining, Petrochemical, Storage, Offshore and Pipeline Transportation industries.
GISS personnel performing guided wave inspections are internationally certified and are considered to be the most experienced inspectors in the industry, additionally we provide hi-temperature inspection solutions for applications of up to 350°C (662°F).
