Built on experience, certification, training, and consistency, Tilt is proud to provide only qualified, and highly trained technicians for every type of project - this is key to our success.

Products & Services
Pipeline Integrity Services

While Tilt Inspections base is NDE, Tilt’s focus is on building a dynamic company culture based on Pipeline Integrity services.

Using advanced tools and integrity procedures combined with ongoing training and certification for our technicians, Tilt Inspection aims to provide pipeline operators with the most accurate and comprehensive data possible.

Every member of Tilt’s field staff is highly experienced in performing pipeline integrity inspections including:

  • Corrosion Assessments
  • SCC / CSCC Evaluations
  • Dent / Geometry Assessments
  • Long Seam / Girth Weld Assessments
  • Defect Mitigation & Hardness Testing
  • Performing Integrity Calculations
  • In-line Inspection (ILI) Data Correlation
  • 3D Laser Mapping & Phased Array / TOFD
  • OES Spark Testing & Soil & Coating Assessments
Advanced Ultrasonics

PHASED ARRAY TESTING

Phased array tools provide us with the ability to perform inspections using ultrasonic beams of various angles and focal lengths using a single array of transducers.

Software control over beam angle and focusing is achieved by the application of precisely controlled delays to both the emission pulse and received signal for each element in an array of transducers. A phased array improves on conventional UT by using a wide range of angles in a single scan.

ADVANTAGES INCLUDE:

  • The ability to sweep a range of angles from 40 - 70 degrees, and display the image in real-time for the swept angles.
  • Steer-focus and scan beams with a single transducer assembly.
  • Detection of manufacturing flaws (lack of fusion, incomplete root penetration, porosity, toe and root cracks).
  • Detection of in-service flaws (fatigue cracking, stress corrosion cracking, corrosion, erosion, etc.) and parent material flaws (inclusions and laminations).
  • Efficient corrosion mapping by using a larger footprint of array probes to increase scanning areas.
  • Repeatability of inspections and reduced time required to perform inspections.
  • Creation of scan plans to visualize the effectiveness of phased array setup.

TOFD TESTING:

Time of flight diffraction (TOFD) detects flaws using the signals diffracted from the flaw's edges. When the sound wave strikes the tip of a flaw, it acts as a secondary emitter that scatters sound out in all directions, some in the direction of the receiving probe. The time difference between the lateral wave and the diffracted signal from the flaw provides a measure of its distance from the scanned surface, which makes TOFD excellent for defect measurement.

ADVANTAGES INCLUDE:

  • Detection and sizing of all types of embedded flaws, especially those planar. 2. Critical flaw sizing data for input to Engineering Critical Assessments. 3. Excellent at detecting and sizing volumetric type indications (i.e. slag, porosity, etc). 4. Ease of operation.
General NDE Services

Tilt provides General NDE services in a variety of industries such as oil and gas, pipeline, petrochemical, and fabrication.

Our General NDE services include:

  • Conventional Ultrasonics
  • Magnetic Particle & Liquid Penetrant
  • Phased Array / TOFD & 3D Laser Scanning
  • Hardness Testing & OES Spark Testing
  • Corrosion Surveys & Weld Inspections

While Tilt does not provide Radiography/X-ray services in-house, we have created partnerships with various providers to execute these services on our behalf. These providers have been fully Pre-Qualified to Tilt and our client’s standards.
