Now difficult-to-access storage tank walls and roofs can be inspected for corrosion. This company has introduced Remote Ultrasonic Testing Services for inspections that deliver detailed and reliable data on tank wall thickness without using costly scaffolding or cranes.
Via motorized tank wall scanner with magnetic wheels, carbon steel tanks are tested for corrosion and weld defects. The service’s method enables remote line scans, spot measurements, time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD) inspection, and remote visual inspection with a steerable camera.
Inspections can be implemented on tank walls, even those with wind girder or overlapping plate obstacles. The technique provides detailed and reliable data on real tank wall thickness with echo-to-echo measurements as required for any tank integrity assessment.
