Corrosion-Resistant Alloys (CRAs): Inspection Solutions
This webinar will emphasize the latest advances in phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) techniques dedicated to CRA material inspections and highlight their advantages and limitations based on on-site results.
The use of corrosion-resistant alloys (CRAs) for the control of corrosion in oil and gas components has numerous benefits. Both the integrity and safety of production systems constructed using correctly selected CRAs (based on appropriate laboratory testing or previous field experience in similar environments) are greatly improved.
These alloys, which are used as cladding, dissimilar metal welds, or base material, present many ultrasonic inspection challenges due to beam scattering, splitting, refraction, absorption and, in some cases, the complex geometry of the components.
This webinar will emphasize the latest advances in phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) techniques dedicated to CRA material inspections and highlight their advantages and limitations based on on-site results. The use of Dual Matrix Array™ (DMA) and Dual Linear Array™ (DLA) probes and full matrix capture/total focusing method (FMC/TFM) techniques will also be discussed.
