The Arise Group is an arm of Rutledge that provides specialized NDT inspection services to various industries.
Launched simultaneously in 4 countries in Feb 2015, Arise Group seeks to arrive at a reliable and valued pedestal of niche & expert Advanced NDT and Inspection services.
Arise is an early adopter of patented Acoustic Eye novel tube inspection technology. Currently, the team has successfully performed inspections for over half a million tubes of all configurations and sizes.
Aside from acquiring specific state-of-the-art NDT equipment and technology, the Arise team is looking to develop innovative capability in-house and through targeted collaborations.
The energetic Arise team provides consultation and expert solutions to clients for their demanding and challenging inspection needs.
Products & Services
Acoustic Emission technology is an advanced NDT technology with unique advantages:
- In-service evaluation of plant asset integrity
- Non-invasive inspection
- Single instance quick inspection of large surface area
- Detects early onset of growing defects as well as their severity
- Material independent (metals, composites, ceramic, concrete etc.)
Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM)
Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM) is used for detecting and sizing surface-breaking flaws. ACFM is also applied to structures both in and out of the water. (It has the advantage over some other techniques that the structure requires minimal cleaning and that it can be applied over paint and other coatings up to several millimetres in thickness).
Alternating Current Field Measurement (ACFM) is particularly suited to the detection and sizing of fatigue cracks at the toes of welds, including all butt, fillet, node and nozzle welds. ACFM to inspect fillet welds in Mobile Offshore Drilling Units (MODUs) to detect any possible original fabrication hydrogen cracking present at weld toes.
- Offshore cranes
- Storage tanks floor & roof ‘lap’ joints
- Storage tank annular welds internal & external
- Vessel nozzles
Corrosion and erosion can inflict significant damage upon petrochemical vessels, tanks and pipework. Due to the risks involved, it is important to recognize corrosion damage as early as possible, especially when such knowledge can assist in planning your operational maintenance strategy. With corrosion mapping systems, solutions are available to assist you in developing condition-determined maintenance strategies which can be used in the calculations for the remaining lifetime of a plant. Our strategies can also be used within a structured plant maintenance program and we also offer a visual representation of the results with a comprehensive report of the affected areas helping you to avoid unplanned shutdowns.
Rapid Motion Scanner (RMS)
The RMS is a high-speed, high-accuracy remote access ultrasonic corrosion mapping system designed to evaluate the condition of ferrous structures such as storage tanks, pipelines, pressure vessels and other critical equipment, supporting effective and safe operation. The RMS2 can give 100% coverage in a band up to 1000 mm wide, significantly increasing the Probability of Detection (POD) of corrosion, enabling engineers to determine the optimum repair strategy and improve risk life assessment (RLA) & risk-based inspection (RBI) maintenance programs. The RMS2 is extremely flexible with a range of scanning heads to suit different inspection requirements.
Scorpion 2 Robotic Crawler
Scorpion 2 dry coupled remote-access ultrasonic crawler brings major efficiency and data improvements to tank shell inspections and other structures such as vessels and offshore installations. API 650/653 compliant, this powerful duo is the perfect solution for in-service inspection of your assets.
Scorpion 2 is equipped with the best ultrasonic electronics and software the industry has to offer. With its advanced filtering, the system can inspect materials 4.7 – 100 mm (0.19 – 3.94 in) faster and more accurately than other solutions on the market.
The R-Scan is a manual, dry-coupled B-scan ultrasonic scanner which can be used on a wide variety of components ranging from 50mm diameter pipe up to a flat surface. The R-Scan continuously records ultrasonic thickness measurements as the scanning head is moved over the inspection surface. The recorded UT thickness information is presented as an A-scan trace, a digital thickness measurement and a B-scan thickness profile. Inspection results can be viewed in real-time in the field or recalled for post-inspection analysis at a later date.
R-Scan can be used for inspection of Piping starting from 2” dia., also it can be used as complementary for RMS scanner for testing of inaccessible or limited access areas.
