This Internal Weld Scanning Tool inspects the internal size and shape of girth welds on pipes that are going
to be used in deep-sea subsea oil and gas applications.
It internally scans welds inside pipes — both visually and dimensionally — enabling engineers to quickly and confidently assess the quality of the root weld.
The technology can be deployed onshore and offshore at different stages of the pipe welding process. The tool can be used on corrosion-resistant alloy-lined pipe to identify sour (aggressive) ingress points, in both clad butt-weld and clad weld inlay applications. It can also be used to improve weld procedure development efficiency and to check the root weld and geometry before next passes are deposited.
